- Draw – 26.1%
- Corinth – 17.9%
To calculate the probabilities of each outcome, economist Bruno Imazumi uses a statistical model that uses the bivariate Poisson distribution along with the Monte Carlo simulation method. Based on the parameters determined through the analysis of more than 78 thousand participations in Brazil collected by Espião Estatístico since 2013, it evaluates the recent performance of the teams in the season, mainly using the Goal Prediction (xG) indicators.
