With Super Bowl Sunday just a day away, it’s time to hear from some highly-accredited sports analysts: puppies!

For the seventh year running, Jimmy Fallon was ready with his annual "Puppy Predictors" on “The Tonight Show” Friday. He asked some very good doggos to place their bets on either the New England Patriots or the Los Angeles Rams. So who did they choose?

Fallon set the ground rules for the nine puppies — "no wandering, peeing, or butt-sniffing" — before they were let loose on stage. Once they were released, the dogs scrambled to cast their eager votes. As with previous years, there were two bowls of kibble to choose from — one representing the Patriots and one representing the Rams — and whichever bowl drew more puppies won.

Sorry, Rams fans! On the bright side, it’s still possible the puppers were wrong, as they are half of the time. The golden retriever puppies have a bit of a spotty predicting record: they correctly predicted the Patriots’ win last year, but they didn’t expect the team's win in 2017.

It's okay, we could never stay mad at those cute little faces!
