I've just seen a tweet from a US sportscaster on the Man Utd result
"With the win, Manchester United is 90.4% favorite to win PL title, per SPI. Odds were 77.1 pct before weekend."
Fair enough - but that isnt the way most of everyone else talks about football. The things people want evidence on are not the things that supply obvious data. This is why football is a different game than most US sport(s).
We want depth - but not of that stuff. A big project at the moment (separate from the MC work) addresses this.
And so does an upcoming article.
