JLL, Roger Staubach Predicting Victory for New England on Sunday

CHICAGO, Jan. 29, 2015 – Oddsmakers see an even matchup in Sunday’s Big Game between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots, but if commercial real estate statistics – and the view of a former title game MVP – are considered, Tom Brady should celebrate his fourth championship.

JLL and its Americas Executive Chairman Roger Staubach are predicting a victory for New England on Sunday. Watch as Staubach reveals his selection for the Big Game.

“The Patriots have been phenomenal all season, and Tom Brady is one of the all-time greats,” said Staubach, who took home MVP honors in the 1972 game. “I think you’ve got one of the best matchups we’ve ever had for Sunday’s game, and I expect Seattle, with their great quarterback that never quits, to play a fantastic game.”

“But this is the year the Patriots win another championship.” History tends to favor commercial real estate vacancy rates in the Big Game, but last season’s victory for the Seahawks proved there may be more factors than available space for lease that dictate Sunday evening’s NFL title.

According to JLL research, NFL teams based in cities with higher office vacancy rates have taken home the Lombardi Trophy 60 percent of the time in the past 15 seasons, including a seven-year streak from 2000-2006. Seattle broke from that trend in 2014 with the franchise’s first championship.
