Here we are, the first round of the 2013 MLS Cup playoffs. If you missed the games from week 36, I definitely recommend watching some highlights, they were amazing. We successfully predicted 6 of the 10 games, and the 4 we missed were very evenly matched so they could have gone either way. I’ve also included the Power Rankings for the 10 teams that are left in the playoffs.
In case you are wondering, overall, our ELO system successfully predicted the winner of 53% of the games played this season. If you want to include draws in these numbers (since a team still gains points and the system considers it half a win), then our predicted winner did not loose 78% of the time. Not too bad.
