Simulation Methodology and Bristol Rovers Shirt Giveaway

Dividend Estimates For the 2018/2019 Season League Games 


First, we collected fixture and results data for the Performance Buzz eligible leagues for the past 3 seasons. In cases where there were teams that will be playing in the top division this year that haven’t played in the top division for all 3 of the previous seasons, we replaced relegated teams with these teams accordingly.

Next, we collected two years of performance data for every player to have played in the top 5 leagues over the last 2 seasons.  We also cross-referenced this data with each player's actual PB scores last season as well some data provided to us by @BuzzingPaul.

Then we estimated each player's expected score and variability for each game over the 3 seasons of fixtures based on their PB average, the 2 seasons of performance data (weighted towards last season), fixture results, their current club and the variability of scores last season.

Finally, we used this data to simulate each gameday for the last 3 seasons 100 times and recorded the winners of each game day every time as well as whether this was a single, double or triple matchday. We then aggregated these results to find each player's average dividend returns per season across the simulations.


The results will be added to our Premium Member’s Blog at 2 PM Sunday, July 29.
