TeamForm Match Predictions

Accuracy of Predictions

Match prediction is a crucial process in TeamForm Rating System as the post-match rating exchange is calculated from comparing predicted result and actual result. After the system ran for a period of time, it will be more stable and the match predictions will become more accurate if the system is doing well in right direction.

The graph above shows the comparison between predicted percentage and actual percentage of home win in over 1.2 million matches since 2006. The lines should be perfectly straight if the predictions are 100% accurate (red line). The blue line shows how accurate is the predicted percentage on home win. The correlation coefficient is 0.998. When the coefficient is 1, it means that the two variables being compared have a perfect positive relationship; when one variable moves higher or lower, the other variable moves in the same direction with the same magnitude. In other words, a correlation coeffiicient close to 1 means the predictions are accurate.
