Matchday 12 - EPL Predictions

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the twelfth edition of my EPL Predictions newsletter, where each week, I'll post detailed forecasts for each game.

As a general rule of thumb, each issue will contain an assessment of the previous week's forecasts, plus naive and biased predictions for upcoming games.

(you can learn more about the general assumptions of the model here)

Let's get to it.

End-of-season predictions

End-of-season EPL projections.

Naive Predictions

The naive predictions are computed using historical data only, and it's the forecast system that I use to simulate the end-of-season probabilities for the Premier League.

The following table showcases each game's forecasts under this model.

Biased Predictions

In this section, I present my biased forecasts, which, are based on both my hunch and historical data. For each match, I'll present a detailed viz with probabilities for different events within the match and a small write-up.

The following table shows the summary of my biased forecasts.

Biased matchday 12 predictions.

Detailed fixture forecasts

Nottingham Forest vs. Liverpool forecast.
Everton vs. Crystal Palace forecast.
Manchester City vs. Brighton & Hove Albion forecast.
Chelsea vs. Manchester United forecast.
Aston Villa vs. Brentford forecast.
Leeds United vs. Fulham forecast.
Southampton vs. Arsenal forecast.
Wolverhampton vs. Leicester City forecast.
Tottenham Hotspur vs. Newcastle United forecast.
West Ham United vs. AFC Bournemouth forecast.

How did we do in the last gameweek?

Back-to-back wins for the model as we close down to a 2.6% error difference on the overall error for the season.

If it weren't for that woeful Tottenham display, we would be in a much better position.
