The simulation module for the OOTP Predictions for April 6 2019 predicted correctly 9 out of 15 games. This is something we should expect from a simulator capable of predicting the World Series and most of the playoff games  two years in a row. The simulator seems to be adjusting to the teams’ results.  Yesterday, I […]

OOTP Predictions for April 6 2019

Data Tells a Story

The predictions for yesterday’s games improved with seven out of twelve games predicted correctly. You can’t fault the simulator for choosing Boston to win. Remember how they were last season? But, the strength indicator is becoming less forgiving for the team. Losing against the Diamondbacks is unimaginable. The excuse that it’s early in the season […]

OOTP Predictions for April 5 2019

Baseball Diamond 3D

Out of the eight games played yesterday (two were postponed), the simulation module predicted correctly four out of the eight. This means, if you randomly chose teams using these predictions, the results would have been the same as a toss of a fair coin. Boston lost again to a team they should have beat easily. The […]

The predictions for yesterday’s games were better than they have been. I’d like to suggest that it’s because teams are starting to find themselves, but we’ll see if that is what happens over the next few weeks. The simulations should improve as the players and teams find their grooves. The results are nine games predicted […]

When you look at the results from April 1, it appears that Boston can’t seem to get their engine started. It’s been losing to what most would consider inferior teams. Granted, it’s still early in the season, and the team has yet to play a home game. But, they won 108 games out of 162 […]

The OOTP predictions for April 1, 2019 are ready, and they a likely to make you think it’s some kind of April Fool’s joke. Unfortunately, that is not the case. The results were rather bad once again.My initial inclination was to run simulations less frequently. However, experiments don’t always work out the way you planned. […]

OOTP Predictions for March 31

The simulator did not do well with this run. Only five of the teams were predicted correctly. One game, Pittsburgh vs. Cincinnati was postponed. Several games were upsets like Boston vs Seattle and Yankees vs. Orioles. These are teams that should have won handily.As I keep suggesting, the simulator may not have been designed to […]

Old Style Scale

As the games were played late in my time, I decided to update in the morning. The results are six out of the eight games were predicted correctly by the OOTP simulation module. Boston did win last night but by a narrow margin. It’s the beginning of the season, so we shouldn’t be surprised to see […]
