European soccer expert David Sumpter is an applied mathematician who wrote Soccermatics, the book that shows how math works inside the game. Together with experienced analysts, Professor Sumpter developed the powerful "Soccerbot" model.
The Soccerbot reads current odds and all team performance data, calculates key metrics and predicts upcoming matches. In the two-and-a-half seasons since it was born, the Soccerbot is up 1800 percent on bookmakers' closing odds. That's right -- 1800 percent!
Now, the Soccerbot has set its sights on the probability of each team winning their respective group at the 2018 World Cup.
We can tell you Brazil has the highest probability to advance out of Group E, despite losing defender Dani Alves to a knee injury. Another team the model is all over to win its group: Colombia, which has a 40.2 percent chance of taking down Group H.
Sumpter's model is also eyeing two teams with World Cup outright odds of longer than 25-1 to win their group. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it big.
So who wins each group at the 2018 World Cup? And which massive long shots have the best chance to shock the world and advance to the Round of 16?
