World Cup Round of 16 Prediction Results

Powered by Moreover Newsdesk

The World Cup’s Round of 16 bracket results are back with media hype predicting a win or loss exactly 50% of the time. Some of the predictions did have their caveats. The Colombia v. Uruguay match coverage was skewed towards Uruguay due to the high number of mentions related to Luis Suarez. The USA v Belgium match was skewed due to the sheer number of media outlets in the US.

Tim Howard

Despite the USA losing to Belgium, the US team’s goalkeeper Tim Howard has earned international respect for his new World Cup record of 16 saves. His name is also currently dominating players mentioned in the media over the past 24 hours:

World Cup Predictions

Powered by Moreover Newsdesk

Do the best teams get the most media hype? Can we predict matches based on who’s getting the most coverage? Let’s take a crack at it by simply comparing the coverage between two teams, and then comparing the results once they’re done playing. We won’t try to predict scores; simply who will win.

Brazil v. Chile

This is one of the closer media match-ups with Brazil’s coverage only about 5% higher than Chile’s. While it’ll be a close game, we’re predicting a Brazil win here.

Colombia v. Uruguay

No question here who we have to go with; Uruguay’s coverage completely dominates Colombia’s.

Netherlands v. Mexico

Both of these teams have been doing well, but media coverage is clearly weighted in the Netherland’s favor.

Costa Rica v. Greece

France v. Nigeria

This is the third really close media hype match. We’re predicting Nigeria will beat France.

Germany v. Algeria

German and Algeria have a bit of a history, with their 1982 matches credited with the current rule that the last pair of games in every group must be played simultaneously. With Germany, also a popular contender for winning the World Cup, we’re going to go with the media on this one and call for their win.

Argentina v. Switzerland

Argentina is predicted to win by a comfortable margin as they have 3x the amount of coverage compared to Switzerland.

Belgium v. USA

The US team has proven themselves as a solid opponent. While the amount of media they’re accumulating could be attributed to the sheer number of US publications, we’re going to go with calling for their win against Belgium.
