Oxford University mathematic modeller has come up with likely outcomes for the World Cup

3 mins read

Joshua Bull, a mathematician from Oxford University, has predicted possible World Cup results.

He created the Oxford Mathematics 2022 World Cup predictor by honing in on the facts, applying his modeling abilities, and adding a sprinkling of the assumptions that underlie modeling.

Mr Bull, who won the 2020 Fantasy Football tournament from over eight million entries, will also provide predictions of specific games on social media outlets, beginning with England-Iran and including all subsequent knockout games.

His mathematical model forecasts that Brazil will win after defeating Belgium in the final.

The Oxford mathematical model predicts the path to the men’s World Cup.

The model was created by Joshua Bull, a researcher in Oxford’s Department of Mathematics. The model simulated the group stages a million times and took the most common results. The algorithm then simulated each qualifying match 100,000 times.

The model was built by analyzing team rating data from http://eloratings.net and focused on every first team international match since 2018.

Here are Oxford’s World Cup predictions at the end of the study:
