Tipping: Before Round 1, 2017

And so begins the algorithm’s teething period for the year. Who had the better pre-season training periods and how much each team’s personnel has changed will affect results heavily, but the system doesn’t account for any of this. If I had (a lot) more time on my hands, I’d re-tool it for individual players, but the thought of the sheer amount of work that would take makes me slightly nauseous. Maybe one day…

I’ve added some colour to this table now, with a tri-tone rainbow showing how close a game is expected to be. Sadly, no really close games are predicted so you don’t get to see it in full effect in this post.

The only upset I’ve tipped according to betting odds is Adelaide over GWS. However, this is mostly due to Adelaide’s injury issues, as they are missing Sloane, Walker, Crouch and Thompson. Good luck beating GWS without your midfield and a key forward.
