Bing predicts Kentucky will beat UCLA


KenPom predicts Kentucky will beat UCLA by two, while FiveThirtyEight’s fancy algorithms give the Cats a 68% chance of beating the Bruins to advance to the Elite Eight. Another computer model is also feeling good about Kentucky’s chances on Friday night. According to Bing, Kentucky has a 53% chance of beating UCLA:

How did Bing come to this conclusion? By using its intelligent machine-learning technology to analyze social and search signals, plus more than a decade of college hoops statistical data, per its website. Per Bing, the Cats will win because they commit far fewer turnovers and fouls than the Bruins. That seems like an overly simplistic breakdown of this game, but hey, I’ll take it.

UPDATE: As “IstandUPatGames” notes in the comments, Bing apparently uses the rule of 71. See, it is real!

    Interesting that to win, the first thing the Bruins must do is hold UK to under 71 points!

    I like the positive energy but is Bing still a thing?

    Monk having the confidence to hit that big three at the end of the Wichita State game was Huge. I personally think it was what he needed for UK’s run to the championship.
