I am doing a project to predict the outcome of a cricket match, I have the data that states which matches were won by whom for ODIs. [Espn data]
Which algorithm could be used to predict the outcome of the coming matches? Would Quadratic Regression be a good idea? Or would predicting based on probability algorithms such as the markov's algorithm is what is generally used? Any other algorithm I should use?
So basically, I want to know which algorithm I should use, I will implement in C++ ultimately but I will do it in R or python first.
I am a newbie in this field, hence pardon if the question sounds too stupid. I have learnt regression so far in data analytics.
