Corgi Who Predicted NBA Playoff Outcomes With Incredible Accuracy Makes His Predictions for State of Origin: Here’s How Hairy Nostradamus Thinks the Series Will Play Out
The dog that predicted some of the NBA playoff outcomes with incredible accuracy has made his predictions on the State of Origin and that’s good news for those of a Blues persuasion.
Social media was sent into a tailspin earlier this month when a corgi, nicknamed both Steph Furry and Fluffy Mamba, correctly predicted the outcome of the first five games of the Western Conference Semifinals between the Lakers. of Los Angeles and the Golden State Warriors.
Standing at the top of a flight of stairs, the dog drops a basketball, with two buckets waiting for the ball at the bottom – one for New South Wales and one for Queensland.
And if his prediction is to be believed, the Blues will retake the shield from the Maroons, winning the series 2-1.
The corgi predicted New South Wales will win the series opener on Wednesday night in Adelaide, before wrapping up a series win in Brisbane with Queensland picking up a dead rubber in Sydney on July 12.

The dog had correctly called the result of the first five games between the Lakers and Warriors using the same method.
The corgi correctly predicted the Lakers would win 1-0, only for the Warriors to draw series level in Game 2.
He “knew” then that the Lakers would take a 2-1 and then 3-1 lead, before the Warriors retired a game to make it 3-2.

The corgi then predicted that the Warriors would come back from 3-2 down to win the series and keep their title defense alive, but that prediction didn’t come to fruition as the Lakers won Game 6 to wrap up the series.
Their hopes of winning a 19th NBA title and first since 2020, however, evaporated in the Western Conference Finals as they were swept in four games by the Denver Nuggets.
The 2023 State of Origin series kicks off in Adelaide on May 31 and it’s arguably the most evenly balanced in recent memory.
The Maroons hold the shield and have triumphed in two of the last three years, but the Blues are desperate to show that last season’s loss was just a blow as they look to win a fourth series in six years under Brad Fittler.
