Bing flexes its prediction muscles with the NFL draft

The Bing team is notorious for applying its prediction engine to all manner of sporting events, and the the upcoming NFL draft is no exception. Microsoft announced today that draft junkies can now head over to Bing to see its predictions on how the draft will play out.

Bring flexes its prediction muscles with the NFL draft

From the Bing Blog:

The Bing Predicts models use web and social data to algorithmically determine the most likely matches between players and team for a given position. This marks the second year we've predicted the football draft, and last year we were, on average, off by just one spot in the first nine selections.

If you're planning to follow along with the draft and want to potentially impress your friends, you can use Bing's predictions as a guide ahead of the first draft round, which kicks off tomorrow, April 28.
