The AFL season begins at Swinburne

Posted March 24, 2013 in category General by Rebecca Parker

Swinburne's renowned football tipster and Professor of Statistics, Stephen Clarke, predicts the Sydney Swans will take out the premiership flag once again in 2013.

The computer-based tipping system developed by Professor Clarke tops numerous football tipping competitions, and has even been known to beat the predictions of some legendary football experts. The computer-generated tips achieved a 77 percent success rate last year, and 78 percent in 2011.

Swinburne has a long association with football. You might enjoy this early footage from our archives of students in the 1951 Football Grand Final between Swinburne and Brighton at Oakleigh Football Ground. Swinburne was successful, kicking 5-10 to Brighton's 2-7, and becoming the premier team for the second successive year.
