Why this forecast works

5/1/2014

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.
