We found the arbitrary point systems of many sports league to be entirely unfounded. Three points to a victor? Why? Just track who beat whom, and use Bayesian inference!
Please note that there exist a few Facebook groups and Twitter handles that claim this website as their own. While we appreciate the promotion, it must be stated explicitly that we are not affiliated with any of them.

One million Monte Carlo samples were bootstrapped to yield mean
