Kashef didn’t have the best days in the office. Unfortunately for our artificial intelligence (AI) predictor, the adrenaline-charged high-octane soccer played in the first few games has led to several big surprises.
The good news for us living things is that every time Kashef misunderstood something, we’ve been treated to a true celebration of World Cup magic. Let’s just take Saudi Arabia’s historic victory over Argentina as an example.
Today, Kashef has processed the historical data and performances of all teams in action to predict the results of each game.
Here are Kashef’s predictions:
Who: Switzerland versus Cameroon, Group G Where: Al Janoub Stadium When: Thursday, November 24:13:00 (10:00 GMT)
Kashef has backed Switzerland to win their opening game against Cameroon, although a draw is also likely.
Who: Uruguay versus South Korea, Group H Where: Education City Stadium When: Thursday, November 24:16:00 (13:00 GMT)
Well, 34 percent is a very high probability of a tie. This will be close if we stick to Kashef’s analysis.
Who: Portugal versus Ghana, Group H Where: Stadion 974 When: Thursday, November 24:18:00 (15:00 GMT)
Kashef supports Portugal as the big favorite here, in an eerily similar prediction to the game between Saudi Arabia and Argentina. Could there be any more excitement?
Who: Brazil versus Serbia, Group G Where: Lusail Stadium When: Thursday, November 24:21:00 (18:00 GMT)
You don’t have to be an AI robot to see that Brazil is the favorite in this game. However, Serbia’s 10 percent chance of winning is one of the lowest odds we’ve seen from Kashef so far.
