As you may have heard, Cortana predicted the FIFA World Cup matches over the summer, and did exceptionally well. Since then ‘she’ has been predicting NFL games as well.
Ever since the NFL season began (2 weeks), Cortana has a 20-12 record in correct predictions. Although it’s not as impressive as her 15-1 record in the World Cup, it is beating Las Vegas records (which is calculated using their own methods). The Las Vegas favorites have a 18-14 record.
These are Cortana’s picks for week 3:
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Atlanta Falcons — Falcons win, 71.6% chance
San Diego Chargers vs. Buffalo Bills — Chargers win, 51.5% chance
Dallas Cowboys vs. St. Louis Rams — Cowboys win, 55% chance
Washington Redskin vs. Philadelphia Eagles — Eagles win, 72.9% chance
Houston Texans vs. New York Giants — Texans win, 58.2% chance
Minnesota Vikings vs. New Orleans Saints — Saints win, 74.2% chance
Tennessee Titans vs. Cincinnati Bengals — Bengals win, 71.6% chance
Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns — Browns win, 58.2% chance
Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions — Lions win, 58.2% chance
Indianapolis Colts vs. Jacksonville Jaguars — Colts win, 64.4% chance
Oakland Raiders vs. New England Patriots — Patriots win, 82% chance
San Francisco 49ers vs. Arizona Cardinals — 49ers win, 58.2% chance
Denver Broncos vs. Seattle Seahawks — Seahawks win, 58.2% chance
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Miami Dolphins — Dolphins win, 53.3% chance
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Carolina Panthers — Panthers win, 67.4% chance

We will soon see how well Cortana does for the remainder of the season.
As an avid Basketball fan, I hope to see Cortana predicting NBA games when the season begins. What would readers like to see Cortana do in the future?
