This site is developed by Statistical Sport Modeling Group (GMEE), whose goal is to aggregate researchers, undergraduate and graduate students interested in statistical methodology development for sports data.

The GMEE was created at the Risk's Study Center (CER) of the Department of Statistics, located at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCAR), and the Centre for Applied Mathematics and Statistics for Industry (CeMEAI) of the Institute of Mathematics and Computer Sciences (ICMC), USP, São Carlos.

The forecasts presented in this site are obtained by a statistical model applied to the results of matches which considers the following factors: home field, attack and defense power for each team of the championship.
