Aaron Boone perfectly predicted Super Bowl final score
New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone has a future in sports prognostication if he wants it.
Boone dropped his Super Bowl prediction moments before kickoff. His call was for a 31-20 Chiefs win — which amazingly turned out to be the exact final score and winner.
FWIW- I’m goin w the Chiefs. 31-20. #SuperBowlLIV

31-20 isn’t exactly a perfectly normal final score for a football game, as it requires a few field goals. That’s part of what makes this prediction so incredible. Plenty of people make Super Bowl picks, so it’s inevitable that a few people will get it right on. You wouldn’t expect Boone to do it, though, and he even has the evidence that he made the right call ahead of time.
Given all the issues Boone’s Yankees have had in recent years with teams who allegedly knew what was coming against them, maybe it’s a good omen that Boone’s 2020 starts with a perfect prediction like this.
