Football fans across the country are placing their bets in time for Sunday’s Big Game, but if you’re not sure which team has the better odds to win, maybe this ‘psychic’ orangutan can point you in the right direction.

A female orangutan named Siabu from Fresno’s Chaffee Zoo chose her favorite team to take the Super Bowl this Sunday, picking the box holding the red and gold blanket for the 49ers over the Ravens.

Just how reliable is Siabu’s prediction? Zoo reps say she’s been right only about half the time, so place your bets with caution!

For more on this ‘psychic’ orangutan, head over to our sister site CBS San Fransisco for the complete story.

Update: We caught up with the orangutan the other day, and it seems like he’s doing a lot more than just predicting the winner! Listen below.
