OAKLAND Calif. — A 14-year-old boy took his school math project to another level when he used it to predict the outcome of the 2016 World Series.

Connor Garcia Whitehill created an extensive metric system that he calls the “Connor Curve” to prove his claim. According to his calculations, the Chicago Cubs will win. He made this prediction in March, which is when the video was posted to YouTube.

Connor used different categories including offense, defense and pitching for every Major League team to create the curve. Do we have a mini Theo Epstein on our hands? See how it all works in the player above.
