Morales, Carlos J.
In this project we investigate the performance of a variation of the so-called Bradley-Terry (BT) model for paired comparisons in the context of the 2004 Athens Soccer Olympics and the English League. We explore the usefulness of the BT model both as a tool to rank sport teams and as a prediction tool. We find that for the English League, the BT performs adequately in terms of ranking, but it performs poorly for the Olympic since data is too sparse.
