  • Who Will Win the Baseball Playoffs? 0 comments

    Here's an excerpt and summary from an analysis I did for the New York Times:

    After analyzing the championship games or series of the N.F.L., N.B.A., N.H.L. and Major League Baseball, and the major finals in golf and tennis, we identified 50 championships characteristics in our book, Who Will Win the Big Game? A Psychological and Mathematical Method.  Here we use this research to take a look at the matchups for this year’s baseball playoffs.

    Summary

    Some of the sports psychology factors produced interesting results -- predicting underdogs to advance:
    • The article predicts that the Reds, with their offense, and namely their "consistent" offense (league-leading batting average, in particular) will beat the Phillies.
    • The sports psychology factors also point to Tampa Bay, the New York yankees, and Atlanta (another underdog) to win their series.
    • The article predicts that the Reds will meet the Yankees in the World Series.
