Can Redskins/Packer game predict election next week? (moved)
The article outlines the results of the last 17 (not 15 as stated above) games, each correctly anticipating the results of the presidential election.
"If the Redskins win their last home game before the election, the party that occupies the White House continues to hold it; if the Redskins lose that last home game, the challenging party's candidate unseats the incumbent president. While we don't presume there is anything more than a random correlation between these factors, it is the case that the pattern has held true even longer than claimed, stretching back over seventeen presidential elections since 1936:"

This may actually get people who don't normally vbet betting on this game if they have a strong leaning towards a candidate. It will be VERRY INTERESTING...
