There are 14 teams in the National Rugby League. During Round 6, every team plays another team, so there are 7 matches. What is the probability of Glenn tipping every match right?


Presuming all three possible outcomes of each match (i.e. win, lose or draw) are equally likely, then there is a 1 in 3 chance of predicting each match. With 7 matches, the probability becomes 1 in 2187 or 0.0457%.
