Nick's Pick: Florida Dolphin Predicts Rams to Win Super Bowl LIII

"Nicholas the Dolphin's" previous picks include France in the World Cup and the Astros in the World Series.

For all the inspiring sports journalists and commentators out there, watch out: this dolphin might be coming for your spot. 

Over the past two years, "Nicholas the Dolphin," has become famous at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Clearwater, Florida, for predicting championship teams

On Friday, he picked the Rams to come out on top Sunday, Feb. 3 against the New England Patriots at Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta. 

If correct, this wouldn't be the first time Nick has picked the winner. Some of his most recent selections include France at the 2018 World Cup and Alabama at the 2018 College Football Championship. He even guessed the Astros over the Dodgers in the 2017 World Series.

Nicholas was brought to the Clearwater Aquarium in 2002 on Christmas Eve - stranded on the coast of Florida alongside his mother, Noelle. Both were found with severe burns.

While Noelle soon passed away, Nicholas remained under the care of Clearwater. Gradually, he made a full recovery - though he couldn't be released back into the wild because he never learned survival skills from his mother. 

Luckily, Nicholas soon found his niche at Clearwater.
