Predicting the winner of a fixture in the ultra-competitive Premier League is no easy task.
That’s why we’ve put some science behind it and are bringing you our new forecasting tool, ‘The Predictor’.
In short, we’ve:
• selected the five factors we think most influence a football match;
• put a score against each factor for the teams involved; and
• added the scores together to give a total, indicating the likely outcome.
If there is less than 1 point between the teams we forecast a draw.
After the final round The Predictor has a strike rate of 47%!
