Stephen Hawking Uses Analytics to Determine Optimal Conditions for England's Success During World Cup
Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest minds of our time, has turned his focus to the World Cup to determine England's chances in the upcoming football tournament. Using a technique called General Logistic Regression Modeling, which is... well, honestly I have no idea, I'm not Stephen Hawking... it was determined that England performs best when using a 4-3-3 formation, during games that start close to 3 p.m. and are officiated by European referees.
According to PaddyPower, the betting site behind this video, England currently sits at 28/1 to win the tournament, buuuuut if they get the benefit of a few European referees and 3 p.m. start times then... well Brazil will still win, all of this analysis is probably a waste. [SportsGrid]
