The Kansas City Chiefs will beat the San Francisco 49ers 35-31 in Super Bowl LIV--at least according to Madden NFL 20.  

The video game's annual Big Game simulation has correctly predicted 10 out of the last 16 Super Bowl outcomes, though, as Forbes notes, it hasn't been doing so well in recent years, getting three of its last four Super Bowl predictions wrong.

This year, Madden 20 predicts that Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will be crowned Super Bowl MVP after throwing for 392 passing yards and four touchdowns to set the record for most passing touchdowns in a single post season. It's worth noting that Mahomes is also the video game's cover star and the current point spread favors the Chiefs slightly at -1.5 over the 49ers

The simulation also predicts that 49ers Jimmy Garoppolo will put up 254 yards and two touchdowns, while Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce will grab 10 receptions for 102 yards and put up one touchdown.
