Welcome to the eighteenth 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 assess the previous week's forecasts plus provide naive and biased predictions for upcoming games.
Let's get to it.
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.
In this section, I present my biased forecasts 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.
Detailed fixture forecasts
How did we do in the last gameweek?
This past gameweek has been the most unpredictable this season, with all three models getting an error above 0.7. Sadly, my model underperformed 538's by a tiny margin – mainly due to Tottenham and Chelsea results.
