Show simple item record

dc.description.abstract This paper presents a new bracketing method for all 63 games in the NCAA Division 1 basketball tournament. This method, based on the logistic conditional probability models, is self-consistent in terms of constructing winning probabilities of each game. Empirical results show that this method outperforms the ordinal logistic regression and expectation method with restriction(Restricted OLRE model) proposed by West (2006). en_US
