Remember Paul the Octopus, who correctly predicted the results in all seven of Germany’s 2010 World Cup matches? Well ever since that phenomenon, it has been common practice to turn to animals to predict the outcome of major sporting events.

With the biggest sporting event of the year just around the corner, it is only fitting that someone gets an animals Super Bowl prediction. ESPN personalities Michael Smith and Jemele Hill took to the Phoenix zoo to ask a myriad of different animals who they are taking in the big game.

After a receiving a number of conflicting predictions, Smith and Hill turned to an orangutan for the final verdict. As Smith says, “When in doubt, ask an orangutan.”

After some suspense, the orangutan puts the Patriots jersey on first thus predicting them to win the Super Bowl. Although he doesn’t seem like much of a Pats fan after nearly ripping the Tom Brady jersey in half before putting it on. Maybe he’s just fed up with the Deflate-Gate allegations. Or maybe the jersey was a size too small. Either way, the orangutan has spoken and the Patriots will be Super Bowl champions come Sunday.
