I guess I have to point the obvious fact out...You are using a public poll to predict the outcome of a sporting event.

If 60% of people predict a snowy winter, it doesn't mean that there is a 60% chance of a snowy winter.

Did you read the first post? He straight up said he was using a spaced repetition algorithm. I think if you look at the type of data he's been using in the past, public polling opinions are uh... not involved.

Weighted by probability, the straight SRS algorithm got just over four series correct:

WinnerProb
NYR54.9%
OTT40.4%
WAS82.3%
PIT48.4%
NAS41.3%
STL29.5%
ANA61.0%
EDM58.8%
TOTAL4.2 series

I think we all agree that we should be doing better than this.
