(Redmond, WA, Wednesday, December 18, 2014) – Awards season is in full swing and before you know it, the Big Game will be here in February. For those struck with wanderlust and looking to branch out for your next vacation, our hidden gem is located somewhere you might not expect. So who will be the big bets for 2015?  

Bing’s predictions list includes:

  • Travel – In our small, yet popular destination predictions, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee came out on top, with neighbor Gatlinburg coming in second. Could the success of Cheryl Strayed’s “Wild” and subsequent movie starring Reese Witherspoon be the reason this Appalachian Trail town will see more tourists in 2015?
  • Awards Shows – Will 2015 be the year Julia Louis-Dreyfus finally wins a Golden Globe for the critically acclaimed “Veep”? Will Queen Bey clean house at the Grammys or will newcomer Sam Smith steal her thunder?
  • Sports – In the land of college football, will the Crimson Tide defense obliterate the Ducks or will the 2014 undefeated Seminoles make a reappearance at the national championship game? For the NFL, will Tom Brady take home his fourth ring or will the Packers snag its fifth championship?

Bing successfully predicted 95% of the 2014 midterm election races, and Bing Elections was accurate in 34 of 35 Senate seats. During the World Cup, Bing correctly predicted that Germany would emerge victorious and picked all 15 winners of the tournament’s elimination rounds.
