Re: 1:40320

lol that's the 3rd different number I've heard today.

The others where 1 in 2100 and 1 in 2 million.

Quote:
 According to an ESPN statistician, the raw odds of getting exactly the same Last 16 draw twice in a row are about 0.00005%, which equates roughly as a ’1 in 2 million’ chance.

I wonder what is right. I don't think the 1 in 2 million is, wouldn't be far fetched for an ESPN statistician not to know that all 16 teams couldn't face each other because of seedings. But then again its math, so what the hell do I know.

If you want overall odds for two exact drawings you have calculate the probability for a certain outcome for the first drawing(depends of numbers of participants of certain countries) and then multiply it with 1/8!.
