UNU has been predicting English Premier League games every Friday for the past few weeks with strong results. This week, the Swarm Intelligence took a look at every game set to be played in the EPL this weekend.
In order to draw the most useful insight, we asked the participants in the swarm answer two questions about each game. First, we want to know how the Swarm Intelligence thinks the game will turn out, that is, who wins and by how much? Then, with that knowledge in hand, we ask the swarm to recommend how much money they’d theoretically be willing to wager on the game.
Of course, though this second question is expressed in terms of $0 to $100, it is best understood as an expression of relative confidence, rather than a betting recommendation. Here’s how this looks in practice, using West Ham vs Liverpool – one of the swarm’s most confident games – as an example.
Question 1: What will be the Outcome between Liverpool and West Ham this weekend?
Question 2: How much should we bet on the Liverpool to win?
Here is the full list of picks for the weekend, ranked by betting confidence.
Hull City vs Crystal Palace is Too Close to Call: REPLAY
Watford vs Everton is Too Close to Call: REPLAY
Before you go, take a second to look just a little closer at the Southampton vs Middlebrough prediction. As you can see in the linked replay, the Swarm picked Southhampton to win by 1. And here’s the replay of the Swarm making its betting recommendation of $25.
The chart below breaks this replay down a bit further, revealing the Inflection Points where Swarm felt the bet was too high and too low. As you can see, the Swarm felt that the ideal bet on this game was right around 20 out of a possible $100.
