Cortana is now offering automatic predictions of who will win upcoming NFL games

Windows Phone 8.1 users who are also big NFL fans will now be able to get automatic predictions of who might win upcoming games via Cortana in the latest example of Microsoft's server-side update to its digital assistant.

In the past, Cortana users could ask it for its predictions of who will win NFL games, based on Microsoft's Bing search engine algorithms. Now Cortana will offer those same predictions without any prompting from the user, if the user has his or her favorite time listed under Interests.

Again, this is a server-side update so there's no download needed to see this new feature. What other automatic inquiries should Cortana add next?

Thanks to Gregory B and many others for the tip!
