Predicting Football Results With Statistical Modelling

Presented by

David Sheehan, Senior Customer Scientist, MoneySuperMarket

About this talk

Football (or soccer to any American readers) is full of clichés: “It’s a game of two halves”, “taking it one game at a time” and “Liverpool have failed to win the Premier League”. You’re less likely to hear “Treating the number of goals scored by each team as independent Poisson processes, statistical modelling suggests that the home team have a 60% chance of winning today”. This webinar will introduce some basic statistical models that have been devised to predict the results of football matches. It won't help you make lots of money, but you will learn about programming, statistics and modelling through this fun intuitive topic.
