Short and sweet this week, we predicted 4 of last weekend’s 6 games right, and are up into the top 25% of Superbru leaderboard. In case that sounds impressive, there are still 40 000 users ahead of us! Here are the results from last weekend’s games.
This weekend’s games are harder to call than any round this season. Our margin, form, and Superbru predictions all point in different directions, with the only game out of the seven where they coincide being the Brumbies–Reds game. The Waratahs big win over the Reds last weekend has made our model pick them to beat the Highlanders, who beat the impressive Chiefs by a few points last weekend. Failing to take into account the strength of a team’s previous opposition is a weak spot in our model – any ideas?
