Was the Super Bowl Easier to Predict than Market Direction

On Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons faced the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 51. I think it would be easier to pick who was going to win the big game, than to pick the direction that the market will go in the short term. The difference is; we knew the winner of the Super Bowl late in the day Sunday. It may be weeks or months before we know what the broad market is going to do.
