Hank Stram tells you who will win the Super Bowl

Hank Stram knows a thing or two about what it takes to win a Super Bowl. He did lead the Kansas City Chiefs to a 23-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV back in 1970, after all. 

However, considering that he passed away in 2005, Stram can not be expected to know who will win Sunday's Super Bowl between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers. That's where the Hank Stram System comes in.

The history of the system are somewhat hazy, but here's what we do know: it takes into account 17 statistics and trends, assigning various point values to the team that comes out ahead of each of them. 

Here is this year's version of the Hank Stram Super Bowl System:

- Give 10 points if a team has won the Super Bowl in the past three years: NONE
Give eight points to any team whose opponent is appearing in its first Super Bowl: NONE
Give eight points to the team that has allowed fewer rushes: SAN FRANCISCO
Give seven points to the team with more rushes: SAN FRANCISCO
- Give seven points to the team with the better overall record: SAN FRANCISCO
- Give five points to the team with the lowest yards per carry allowed: SAN FRANCISCO
- Give four points to the team with the better record against the spread: SAN FRANCISCO
- Give four points to the team with the most kick-punt return touchdowns: BALTIMORE
- Give four points points to the team with the fewer net penalty yards: BALTIMORE
- Give 3.5 points to the team with the higher yards per pass attempt: SAN FRANCISCO
- Give 3.5 points to the team that allowed the fewest points: SAN FRANCISCO
- Give 3.5 points to the team that allowed the fewest rushing touchdowns: SAN FRANCISCO
- Give three points to the team with the most sacks: SAN FRANCISCO
- Give 2.5 points to the team with the fewest pass attempts: SAN FRANCISCO
- Give two points to the team with the best net punts on the season: SAN FRANCISCO
- Give 1.5 points to the team with the best yards per carry average: SAN FRANCISCO
- Give one point to the team with the best completion percentage: SAN FRANCISCO

Clearly Coach Stram thinks Sunday will be an easy victory for the 49ers. The Hank Stram Super Bowl System is said to have a 39-4-2 record since its inception. However, the last time the system foresaw a mismatch such as this was Super Bowl XLV, when Pittsburgh was supposed to maul Green Bay. Final score: Packers 31, Steelers 25.
