Alexa, Who’s Going to Win Superbowl LIII?

Try asking Alexa who’s going to win the Superbowl.  You may be surprised at the direct answer. In this age of artificially intelligence, I decided to put the three main home assistants to a very important test – Who will win the Superbowl.  Inquiring minds want to know!

Amazon Alexa

Alexa clearly had the most personality and gave me different answers based on how I phrased the question. I asked the question two ways and here’s what I got.

Q: Alexa, who’s going to win the Superbowl?

A: “I’m flying with the Eagles on this one because of their relentless defense and the momentum they’ve been riding off their underdog status.  E-A-G-L-E-S. Eagles!”


Q: Alexa, who do you want to win the Superbowl?

A: “I’m rooting for the Eagles,” Alexa responds. “Fly Eagles Fly. They’ve never won a Super Bowl and I like a good underdog story.”

Alexa, you get an A for honesty and creativity.

Apple Siri

By contrast, Siri makes a bold Superbowl prediction

Q: Siri, who’s going to win the Superbowl

A: I hear the New England Patriots are favored by 5 1/2 points

Wow Siri, really???  Let me place my bet!
