There won’t be any sims just yet as I’m still working on the final details of how it’s going to be done.
However the very first qualifier for 2014 gets played today between St. Lucia and Aruba who kick off a home and home series with a match in St. Lucia. So I’ll just quickly give the odds for this one and then try and get a full workup set in time before the next matchup starts in a week and a half.
Anyway, for anyone who is interested St. Lucia should be a heavy favorite here as the system has it 89.38% to 10.62% in their favor to emerge from the two legs victorious. Granted there isn’t much in the way of results to go on for Aruba as they’ve played 9 matches in the last eight years with eight losses and a draw against the Netherland Antilles. St. Lucia has played more often, 29 times winning 6 and drawing 4.
Stay tuned as very soon I’ll know exactly how the qualifying sims will be presented (and where) and once that’s taken care of, I’ll start running them!
