Prediction of All Blacks win backed by the stats

06 October 2011

Stefan Yelas, the mastermind behind a world-renowned sports prediction model, is predicting an All Blacks victory at the Rugby World Cup final.

Stefan is the research director at Beaton Research & Consulting, based in Australia. He says that New Zealand has home ground advantage and based on data, “I am pretty confident they will go the whole way.”

Stefan created the sports prediction model as part of his masters in applied statistics in Australia, which he has now completed.

When interviewed, Associate Professor David Scott of The University of Auckland who is well-known as another accurate predictor of sporting wins, commented that Yelas’ methods were internationally respected.
