Here are my model predictions for the semi finals! You can check out my wrap-up of round 14 here. Here’s a summary of what my model is predicting as the outcomes of the matches for round 15:

Home Away Chance of home team winning
GIANTS Netball West Coast Fever 60%
Queensland Firebirds Sunshine Coast Lightning 79%

Score Differential Distributions

The distribution of the predicted score differentials is shown in the figures below. For each game, the chance of the home team winning is calculated and shown in the figure title. Each distribution is coloured by the team’s colours, and the more of a single team’s colour, the higher the chance that team has of winning. Overlaid on each figure are two vertical, dashed dark green lines; these show the score differential that has a 50% predicted chance of happening.
