In his book, The Wisdom of Crowds, James Surowicki suggests that the many are smarter than the few. That large groups of people are better at solving problems and even predicting the future than a few elites—no matter how smart they are.

Want to give it a try? Let’s predict the future. Specifically, the outcome of a certain sporting contest this Sunday. So who’s going to win, the Pittsburgh Steelers or the Arizona Cardinals?

I’ll email Chris Berman if we’re right.
