Anyone want to try their hand at visualizing it? There’s some pretty cool time dynamics, and I was shocked at how steep the safe-margin threshold is. For instance, with 10 minutes left in the game, a home team with a 6-point lead is 90+% likely to win. I think you could win a lot of bar bets using this table.

The data goes back to 1960 and up to the most current estimates for 2009. Each line represents a country.
It’s always tough to pick my favorite visualization projects. Nevertheless, I gave it a go.
