Utah Ape Looks To Extend Run Of Picking Super Bowl Winner


By KMVT News

Salt Lake City, Utah (CNN) With the Super Bowl just days away, sports forecasters across the country are weighing in on who they think the next NFL champion will be.

But arguably the only one worth listening to came from a zoo in Salt Lake City Thursday.

This is the home of "Eli the Ape.”

Zookeepers set up this display featuring the logos of the Super Bowl contenders.

Whichever one Eli knocks down - is his pick for the winner.

As you can see, Eli likes the Seattle Seahawks to upset the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

The 13-year-old primate has picked the big game's winner the last six straight years.
