After almost 500 min of soccer, the second leg of the semi finals finally ended, and it was a great leg. Our ELO system predicted 3 of the 4 games correctly and I learned that I should listen to it more myself. The NY game was unexpected, but not too surprising with the defensive handicap they went into the game with. It was the RSAvLA game that really surprised me. This conference finals leg 1 seems set to have some more nail bitters. So here what our ELO says.
If you want to see more, keep reading after the break.
In case you are wondering, overall, our ELO system successfully predicted the winner in 53% of the games played during the regular 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.
These are our predictions for the first leg of the conference semi finals. Feedback is always welcome, so please leave a comment or come to r/FantasyMLS and comment on the related post. You can also leave a message on our Facebook page or you can find us on Twitter @FantasyMLSTips. Thanks!
