Predicting the 2014 Soccer World Cup Winner using Plant Simulation

By abhidastidar

2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil begins today. According to our Plant Simulation model developed by @Jonord, Brazil has the highest probability of winning the world cup with 22.3% followed by Germany with 16.4%. If you love statistics, discrete event simulation and of course soccer, you can use this model to see your team’s chance of winning it all or check if they will come out of group stages. Plant Simulation does not have good news for my team USA.

However, there are ways to increase your team’s odds based on factors such as fan support. So let us cheer for our team and increase their odds of winning the world cup.

Please check this post to learn how to run this model.

You can download our Plant Simulation free trial to run this model.
