Why this forecast works

Collective intelligence generally creates more accurate predictions than any individual can. 

What is ESPN Forecast?
Our new engine for creating more accurate sports predictions and opinion.

How does it work?
Our approach, in a nutshell, is to create a diverse panel of people with MLB expertise and then aggregate their predictions and opinions.

Why does it work?
This panel has a collective intelligence that's greater than any individual member's knowledge and sharper than that of any single statistical system.

Diversity is a key factor in creating accurate predictions and opinion. The wisdom of the crowd comes from having diverse views that emerge from independent thinking.

The ESPN Forecast panel is a very diverse mix of contributors from across the spectrum.

The result?
More accurate, insightful forecasts and views.

This is the wisdom of the crowd in action. This is ESPN Forecast.
