3 years ago

The Sky Sports predictor¬†has given an interesting forecast for Newcastle United’s season.

The Sky Sports predictor using their model to work out a percentage chance of the outcome(s), using an algorithm to rank results, previous performances and the difficulty of upcoming fixtures – which has given this predicted end of campaign table below.

They have given the percentage chance of Newcastle ending up as: champions, top four, and relegated, as well as a predicted final league position and points total.

The Sky Sports predictor forecasting a decent points total and league position but not too far above the drop.

Their predictor says that:

As you can see, it predicts a 15th place finish for Newcastle and a points total of 45.

However, they also forecast every team to get 40 points or more, something which surely hasn’t happened for a long time.

The percentage chance of top four is predictably only 1%, whilst ending up champions is less than 1%.

In terms of relegation it sees only a 26% chance of that happening and if Newcastle can keep up their current form for the next half dozen matches, these figures are sure to improve.
