Data experts 538

Post by Smudge3920 »

These guys are predicting for next Saturdays game ... Blades 45% Leeds 28% and Draw 28% !... not sure how good these guys are as that totals 101% according to my math... Anyway link below be interesting to see how accurate they are over the course of the season.

They also predict we will finish 17th on 40pts just above Noocastle by goal difference.

This will change quite a bit in the next few weeks as they're formulating their power ratings with very little data, especially for the newly promoted sides.

Starting with our win on Sunday.

I prefer the combined wisdom of the MOT predictors who have gone for:

"Wide ranging predictions from 1st :shock: down to 16th and 11 different positions inbetween. However, when you average them all out it seems we'll finish at 9.3 - so 9th or 10th !!"

:lol: me too Muppet... these guys have us down as favourites to win only 5 games this season = 15 pts so I guess according to them we will draw 25 games and lose only 8 for our 40pts.. Obviously they rated the teams to start the season off, and the numbers hopefully, will change as the season progresses... but they don't think much of us by the look of it... But what's new :lol:
