Predicting EPL Result using Machine learning
Updated 14 Dec 2018
First of all, I would like to emphasize that I wrote this script for fun, and I don't encourage gambling.
In this script, it uses Machine Learning in MATLAB to predict the result of English Premier League (EPL) match. It uses historical data in past season (EPL 2017/2018) for machine learning to train the model for prediction. In this script, I simply select some features as my predictors. They are average points per match, Number of Shoot, Number of Shoot on Target, and the betting odds in the market. The prediction will tell us the result of match (Home-win(H),Draw(D),Away-win(A)) in this season.
Eventhought the accuracy of model is not so promising,however, it is really very interesting to explore how to do the prediction of the EPL result by using machine learning.
