For 2014-2015 English Premier League season I followed the predictions of soccer pundits. The judgements of Paul Merson, Steve McManaman, Michael Owen, Robbie Savage and Darren Fletcher have all been put under the spotlight. John Eakins has also provided the data on Mark Lawrenson's predictions. We now have a sizeable dataset on Sky Sports, BT and BBC soccer experts who systematically predict.
Below is a graph that shows the success of each pundit in percentage terms. While the sample size is lower for the BT experts, a common pattern still emerges – the pundits called approximately half of the matches (in)correctly - depending on your philosophical perspective! They predict the correct score line roughly 10% of the time.
