Only a 32% chance to win?

I suppose if you put credence in these simulations, then you would put the same credence in the 32% chance of winning?

So we are the underdog. Good motivation!

It’s absurd. A few people on twitter did their own math and we’re at the top.

Favourite in Vegas to win the cup will be favourites if we get there.

Vegas knows. CFL simulation does not

Seems to be in vogue to run these silly ELo simulations in all major sports. They are conceived by these newfangled “data scientists” (pseudo-scientists in my view) with lots of time on their hands. For one thing, I don’t agree with their useof results from previous seasons. All simulations are loaded with assumptions, and they could easily be biased by the person who is running it. I think the CFL is just jumping on the professional sport bandwagon.

The algorithm has been drinking the watermelon flavoured Kool-Aid just like the rest of the CFL site. Need to pour a can of steeler into it’s electronic maw to set it straight.

Interesting! It appears the CFL.ca has pulled this article from their site. My guess is that they don’t believe their results!;D

These simulations mean very little - wonder what they said about the Raptors or the Columbus Blue Jackets last season.

Even if simulations indicate we have 90% chance of winning - gives me no comfort.

Games are played on the field and anything can happen.

Always go with the oddsmakers in Las Vegas. It’s their living, whereas the media is more about stirring controversy.

Not to worry I didn’t post it because I believe it. I posted it so we could chuck @%$# at it.
Got to have something to do on the bye week

No worries. Interesting thread.

IMO I put more stock on Vegas oddsmakers because of the old adage:

“Put your money where your mouth is.”
