CHICAGO — Barbara Meyer admits she "knows nothing" about football, but that didn't stop the local psychic from predicting a Seattle Seahawks victory over the New England Patriots in Sunday's Super Bowl XLIX.
"I am usually very bad at exact predictions," the Chicago-based Meyer said. "I believe that the future is ours to create, so it is not locked in already. But for fun, I thought I would try. I see it being the Seattle Seahawks winning 23 to 19."
Justin Breen explains what Meyer sees happening on Sunday:
DNAinfo reached out to several local psychics in advance of the Super Bowl. Some weren't ready to play along.
"My expertise is more towards spiritual and personal matters, such angel guides, past life regression, astral projection, dream interpretation, tarot readings, chakra balancing, etc. However, I do appreciate the consideration," one local psychic wrote. "I am not knowledgeable in the area of sports or sporting events. My specialty is more towards spiritual guidance and personal life coaching."
Another wrote: "Our gifts focus primarily in the service of spiritual healing" and not score predictions.
"If our gifts were that good with numbers we would be winning the lottery every week! That would be nice," the psychic wrote. "Good luck in connecting with one who has that talent."
Meyer, a self-described psychic entertainer, said a key to the game will be the Patriots' lack of a "good defensive strategy."
"It looks to me like they will lose because they don’t know how to respond to certain plays by the Seahawks," Meyer said. "The Seahawks have a certain unpredictability about them."
The defending champion Seahawks face the Patriots at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., at 5:30 p.m. Sunday on NBC.
After making her prediction, Meyer added: "I will make a note of the cards I pulled and the response I gave you in case I come close."
