World Cup gadgets

I did rather well picking the results of the last World Cup (helped by a large bet on Senegal beating France), but this year, things aren’t going so well. Still, I was quietly confident on Argentina coming through for me as winners this year until I visited Who Ate All The Bratwurst.

They’ve discovered a computer program, put together by students at Sharjah’s American University, which predicts the results of matches with an 83 per cent success rate. So working through it should give you an idea who will win this year’s tournament.

And the winner is….well, you’ll have to go over to Who Ate All The Bratwurst to find that out. But here’s a clue – football isn’t likely to be coming home.
