Which Experts Predicted a Red Sox-Cardinals World Series?

October 20, 2013  |  Sports

With two storied franchises making the 2013 Fall Classic, let’s take a look at which of the 63 experts we tracked this year (from ESPN, Sports Illustrated, CBS, Yahoo, and Fox) pegged the series correctly.

(… Calculating ….)

(… Calculating ….)

Well, how’s this for embarassing: 0 of the 63 so-called experts had both the Red Sox and Cardinals in the World Series.

Perhaps this is not a huge surprise, as Vegas gave each team less than a 10% probability of making the Series. So let’s lower the bar considerably and look at the pundits who picked either the Red Sox OR the Cardinals to make it.

(… Calculating ….)

You guessed it — zero. Not one. We know baseball has been the toughest sport to predict in recent years, but the pundits truly reached a new level of futility this year.

So which teams did the experts pick? Here were the aggregate predictions:
