Arizona lawmakers predicted a San Francisco win

Super Bowl XLVIIA poll of Arizona lawmakers showed solid agreement on one of the most important issues of the week: Who would take home the National Football League title.

That commonly shared sentiment, however, was wrong.

Of those lawmakers who participated in the Arizona Capitol Times’ informal survey, there was bipartisan, bicameral agreement that the San Francisco 49ers would come out on top against the Baltimore Ravens in Sunday’s big game.

House members favored San Francisco two-to-one, while in the Senate, San Francisco was more heavily favored, at a four-to-one margin.

Most sportsbooks gave San Francisco the edge by 3.5 to 4 points.

Sen. Anna Tovar, D-Tolleson, predicted the closest to the actual final score, anticipating a 34-28 Ravens win.
