Specifically, they rely on machine learning, common statistics, and random approaches to make forecasts. The applied method is explained in detail by MIT Technology Review.

Instead of calculating the results at each arm, the process calculates the results of the random arms. It does this multiple times, each with a different set of branches also randomly selected. The end result is an average of all randomly generated decisions.

They analyze the probability of winning conditionally to create results for each stage in the tournament. The method indicates that Spain are better than Germany. Because Germany has a relatively high elimination rate in the round of 16 teams.

The data is then processed by the company so it can generate probability forecasts. Finally, the prediction was made that Germany will beat Brazil to crown, while the remaining two teams in the top 4 are Spain and France.

Another company, Goldman Sachs, was also involved in the game using machine learning. Up to now, all of these predictions were wrong, because Germany came home right after the group stage. It’s too early to say that AI is likely to make more accurate predictions in the future.

Thereby it becomes an effective tool to help betting players more confident when participating in the fight with the house. Because football is an unpredictable sport with the element of surprise that can happen at any time.

Japan’s exhilarating Rugby World Cup run ended by South Africa

Japan’s dream Rugby World Cup campaign ended with a 26-3 defeat by South Africa in Tokyo.

The host country took the tournament by storm after winning all its group stage matches but was overpowered by a physical South African side in the quarterfinal clash on Sunday.

The victory means that the Springboks will next face Wales, having beat France 20-19 earlier in the day, with England and New Zealand contesting the other semifinal of the tournament.

A fourth-minute try from Makazole Mapimpi gave South Africa an early lead after the winger Yu Tamura’s tackle to run in from 25 meters.

Japan strongly came back, however, began to move the ball with trademark skill and speed that has worked so effectively so far in the tournament.

Although a try proved elusive, Tamura cut the deficit to 2 points with a penalty midway through the first half, 9 minutes after Tendai Mtawarira was yellow carded due to a dangerous tackle.

Damian De Allende was denied a goal on the stroke of half time as he was deemed to have got back to his feet having been tackled, which meaned the scores remained 5-3 at the break – the lowest-scoring first 40 of the Rugby World Cup so far.

Since then, South Africa took control of proceedings.

Japan, recorded a famous victory over South Africa at the last Rugby World Cup, had little answer to the visitors’ brute force. Though the “Miracle of Brighton” couldn’t be repeated in Tokyo, the Brave Blossoms bow out of the tournament with their heads held high after having reached the quarterfinals for the first time.

The progress throughout the tournament of Japan has gripped the host nation, with record numbers tuning in to follow their progress through the group stages.

Victories over Scotland and Ireland lifted Japan to an all-time high of sixth in the world rankings, but this South African side, going in search of a record-equaling third Rugby World Cup title, proved a bridge too far.

Premier League Preview: Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Burnley

Wolverhampton Wanders host Burnley on Sunday eager to continue their unbeaten start to the new Premier League season.

Draws against Leicester City and Manchester United represent a solid opening to the campaign for Nuno’s side and they will be keen to build on that against the Clarets.

Bookmakers rate Wolves as -125 favourites to win this weekend, but click here to check the latest odds before wagering on the game.

A much-improved second-half performance from Wolves helped them secure a point against United on Monday.

Anthony Martial’s excellent first-half strike put the Red Devils ahead, but Ruben Neves’ stunning strike pulled Wolves level after the break.

United had a chance to win the game, but Rui Patricio produced a superb save from Paul Pogba’s penalty to deny them.

Wolves will fancy their chances of picking up three points this weekend having lost just seven of their last 20 meetings with Burnley in all competitions.

Sean Dyche’s side started the season with a 3-0 victory over Southampton, but lost 2-1 at Arsenal in their second outing.

The defeat against the Gunners continued Burnley’s struggles on the road and they are likely to find things tough at Molineux.

The Clarets won just four times away from home last season and were beaten 1-0 by Wolves in the corresponding fixture back in September 2018.

The Midlands club went on to end the campaign with 10 wins and four draws at home to highlight how difficult they are to beat on their own patch.

They haven’t failed to score at home since a 0-0 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion during April and have enough quality in their team to trouble Burnley’s backline.

The North West outfit have failed to keep a clean sheet away from home since recording a goalless draw at Watford back in January.

Wolves’ trip to Torino in the Europa League on Thursday is a slight worry from a fitness perspective, but their squad looks strong enough to cope.

The home side have emerged as one of the better teams in the Premier League and are fancied to pick up a 2-0 victory over Burnley.
