About the World Cup Prediction Model

The predictions are made with a random forest approach based on the following indicators:

The model was developed and tested based on over 3'500 World Cup matches (Qualifying Stage and World Cup) since 2000. The predictions reach an accuracy of approximately 0.62. This means the model can determine the outcome of a football match (win/draw/loss) correctly in 62 percent of the cases. For the variable selection, a General Additive Model was used (GAM).

To predict the final probabilites, 1'000 simulations were performed. The average outcome of all simulations results in the final probabilities for each team.

  1. Why don’t the row percentages add to 100%? Netherlands adds to 114% – this doesn’t make sense!
