Back on topic: I don't think putting stock in Silver's football prediction does justice to his excellent methodology for predicting the election results. He's not a soothsayer. He nailed the election by analyzing polling data, which in and of itself is designed and intended to be a predictor of election results. There is no such data that exists for predicting the outcome of football games, certainly not to the degree of accuracy that polling data reflects on election results.
