For the 3rd match week, our predictoions are correct 6/10. that takes our cumulative accuracy for the season to 65%. Not bad as a starter, right?
We are all passionate about football. After the world cup finals, English Premiere League (EPL) is the next hot tournament that we all are eager to enjoy.
Some of us also wants to mix work with life, and we believe that real life events are a hotbed of testing our data science and analytics skills. So, we tried our hands on how close we can go on predicting these exciting matches, just before they are played.
We have developed a theory how past match records, playing actions, team formations etc can influence the outcome of the matches. We have tested these theory using advanced methodologies like discriminant analysis, multinomial profit regression etc.
We have tested this on the first two weeks this season, and getting an encouraging result prompted us to publish these in our blog.
We will be continuously working on these models and will keep improving, by adding more measures or by making the algorithm engine better. We also plan to bring in other insights predictions, like the match score, too!
We will post the actual outcomes once the matches are played, by Tuesday next week.
Let’s enjoy the EPL this season, and keep a tab on the predictions and actual results too!
