Predict the Results of The Big Game with Maritz Research Game Day Survey

ST.LOUIS (Jan. 29 2014) -­ Think you can predict which team will score first in Sunday’s Big Game? Or how long will it take Renée Fleming to sing the national anthem? While football fans across the country get ready to watch Denver face off against Seattle Feb. 2, the team at Maritz Research challenges football fans to try out its latest survey, which lets people guess the answers to common questions around the Big Game.

“We’re a market research company that manages customer experience and satisfaction for our clients, often using surveys, so we thought, why not create a fun survey for ourselves – and now the rest of America – to enjoy?” said Gloria Park Bartolone, senior vice president of Global Fieldworks Operations at Maritz Research. “What started as an amusing survey for employees has quickly grown in popularity – so we’ve now opened it up to everyone. Fans can now test their luck and register their best guesses with us.”

Known to some as proposition “prop” bets or side bets, Maritz Research’s Game Day Survey tests an individual’s knowledge and assumptions of questions surrounding, but not directly related to, one of the country’s biggest sporting events. For instance, fans can weigh in on Game Day topics, including:

  • What will the temperature be at game time?
  • Will it snow during the game?
  • Will Peyton Manning have more or less than 300 passing yards?

No money is involved with the Game Day Survey – it’s simply an easy, free and fun way to make the bets virtually – and then tally scores so friends and family can compare results. Maritz Research will publish a recap of the survey results on its Sound Check blog following the game to see how fans’ predictions stack up.

“Who knows – maybe people will add our Game Day Survey to this year’s rite of eating chili, snacking on hot wings and critiquing commercials,” added Bartolone. “It’ll be an entertaining way to see if you can win bragging rights among your friends and family!”

*Editor’s Note: The Maritz Research Game Day Survey is open through the start of the Big Game on Sunday, Feb. 2. Football fans can complete the survey on smartphones, tablets or desktop computers.
