PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – Paul Bessire, known better by the nickname of his program, “The Prediction Machine,” checked in with The Fan Morning Show today to share his NFL picks, as he does every Thursday at 9:20 a.m.

The Machine runs each game over 50,000 times to find the most likely official outcome and prediction.

The Prediction Machine says the Steelers’ 30-20 win over the Bengals has raised their playoff chances to 1.1 percent.

That doesn’t mean he has them winning in Green Bay this week. It actually is about a seven-point difference either way depending on whether Matt Flynn or Aaron Rogers starts.

He likes the Packers.

The Machine also likes the Seahawks and Broncos as his Super Bowl favorites.

Listen to the Prediction Machine’s full thoughts on the Steelers/Packers, along with his other key Week 16 picks and who he has at the top of the power rankings.
