New Prediction Model Added for Football

Sat, Oct 14, 2017 | Greg Wagner

We are happy to say we have release predictions with our new Monte Carlo prediction algorithm for college football and NFL games. Our new model simulates 1000 games using teams' current statistics to generate performance models for all the teams. Monte Carlo algorithms iterate the simulations many times but randomly draw different statistics from the performance models. The predictions using the old algorithm which was a lookup table based method is still available for both college football and NFL, but the newer algorithm will be used for the front page predictions.
