Maxwell Ratings: Winning odds for each state final

The Maxwell ratings were used to simulate this year’s playoffs 1,000,000 times for each of the classifications. Each team is shown with its rating, class ranking, and number of times winning the state championship out of the 1,000,000 simulations.

Of the 14 remaining teams, the simulation identified seven at the beginning of the playoffs as the most likely championship game participants. Another four were identified as most likely semifinal participants.

During the playoffs, the Maxwell projections have been 142-36 (79.8%).

It seems these projections some how break down in sensible analysis in Class A.

Carrollton and Tucker aren’t getting much computer love. I believe both have a better chance than 30+%..

I’m soooo glad the computer is picking Creekside. Now I know Tucker will win.
