The model first predicted a Red Sox vs. Dodgers World Series during the All-Star break. That was four months ago! The Dodgers were 53-43 at the All-Star Break and the Red Sox were 68-30.

How the SportsLine Projection Model works: 

The computer model simulates the complete World Series 10,000 times — every conceivable pitch, at-bat and inning.

The model projects that there is a 31.6 percent chance this series goes the distance, meaning 7 games. There’s also a 30.5 percent chance that it goes six games. But the team most likely to win each game differs. (source: Sportline)
