When the Madden NFL video game first came out, its cover featured its namesake – former Oakland Raiders head coach John Madden who gained even more fame for his years broadcasting alongside partner Pat Summerall, and then later alongside Al Michaels. However, as the years went by, the game’s designers decided to put players on the cover of each year’s new edition. The Madden 15 edition (for the 2015 football sason), features Odell Beckham, Jr., the gifted wide receiver for the New York Giants. While players are glad to get the recognition that comes from a cover appearance, though, over the years some of the players that have made it onto covers have had some mysterious ailments come along and make their next season – or even the rest of their careers – less successful than they would have liked. This happened to the point where there is some chatter in the NFL betting world about a “Madden curse.” Could it be true?
