There are a lot of things you can look at to make a prediction on who's going to win Sunday's Super Bowl-- including chicken wings. Wait, what?

Forget all those NFL stats on how good Denver's defense is or how many touchdowns Cam Newton's thrown this year, if you want an accurate prediction on who's going to win, all you have to do is look at which city is eating more wings.

Really. According to the Charlotte Business Journal, "If chicken wing sales could predict the Super Bowl 50 winner, then the Carolina Panthers would hands-down walk away with the Lombardi Trophy. In Charlotte, $1,400 worth of chicken wings are sold per every million dollars registered at the grocery store versus just $480 in Denver, says the National Chicken Council, attributing the figures to market-research firm IRI."

That's sounds good, but how does it predict a Super Bowl winner? They've studied that, too.

"The National Chicken Council, a nonprofit trade association based out of Washington, D.C., says that during the 2016 NFL playoffs, the city with higher wing sales than their opponent came out victorious in seven out of 10 games. For the Super Bowl, those odds are even better: with four out of the past five winners boasting the most sale," the story notes.

So, I guess that's it-- the chicken wings tell the tale, and they say Carolina's going to win. All I know is we, as a nation, will be eating a lot of wings this weekend. In fact, the story says 1.3 billion, to be exact. And if you need a little help envisioning just how many wings that is, the story goes on to say, "The National Chicken Council estimates that 1.3 billion wings, if laid end-to-end, could stretch from Bank of America Stadium to Denver's Sports Authority Field at Mile High nearly 53 times."

Wow. I don't know who's going to win the game, but I do know one thing: That's a lot of wings!
