How to pick a European winner 101
With the recent spate of surprising results
- Italy : Paraguay - 1:1
- Mexico : France - 2:0
- Spain : Switzerland - 0:1
- Serbia : Germany - 1:0
- Greece : Nigeria - 2:1 (If the Greeks thought that they could actually win a match, then there must have been some ouzo in that tsatsiki)
I've determined a formula on figuring out whether a European team will win their next group match. Take the Euro, then determine a country's relative GDP in comparison to overall European economy. The higher the relative GDP, the lower is that country's chance of winning a match.
How else can one explain Germany losing to Serbia and the Greeks winning anything but the lottery? :D
If one doesn't like this theory of football predictive analytics, I have heard that Maggie the Monkey is looking for work - she is excellent in hockey picks, stock analysis and manages Hedge Funds in her spare time.
BTW what a comeback! Who knew the Americans had that spirit! Best game of the World Cup so far but Honduras isn't looking that bad right, are they?
