According to a recent poll, one in four Americans believe God has an influence over who wins sporting games. That praying helps shove those odds up even higher.

Half of Americans that took the poll, said God rewards sports stars that are religious and pray often. Ok, so how do you explain Tim Tebow? That dude is praying all the time and the Jets won't even play him.

More people in the south (36%) than in the west (lowest at 15%) think that God is using his will to help the outcome of the games.

According to the Daily Mail,  Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis has regularly thanked God as his team battled to the Super Bowl. After defeating the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship, he said: 'God doesn't make mistakes. He's never made one mistake. God is so amazing.'

Another notable player, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, has religious wording on tattooed on his body; one psalm is visible beneath his jersey on his shoulder.

'The first one I got was Psalm 18:39, a scroll on my right shoulder, "You arm me with strength for battle. You make my adversaries bow at my feet".


So what do you believe? Some say the reason the Vikings have a hard time putting together a Super Bowl winning team is because of the horns, like the devil. I laugh at that one.

Why does Green Bay do well? The Big G.

Sorry, not buying either.
