Verlander correctly picked Super Bowl score

Justin VerlanderBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Justin Verlander is on a roll. Not only did he pick up the American League MVP and Cy Young, but the Tigers' pitcher nailed the Super Bowl score in a celebrity Super Bowl poll.

Earlier this week, Verlander predicted the Giants' 21-17 victory over the Patriots in Super Bowl in the Scripps Howard Celebrity Super Bowl Poll. He was the only celebrity to nail the winner and score. Adam West, the original Batman on TV, had the score right, but the winner wrong, picking the Patriots to win 21-17.

Verlander took to Twitter to gloat:

As for other baseball players, Yogi Berra picked the Giants to win 23-20, former Dodgers pitcher Ralph Branca picked the Patriots to win, 20-13 and the San Diego Chicken also picked the Giants.
