Predicting Soccer Matches After Unconscious and Conscious Thought as a Function of Expertise é um estudo controlado bem curioso sobre a capacidade de prever resultados no futebol de maneira insconsciente. Parece que não precisa ser especialista no assunto para apostar.
Both experts and nonexperts predicted the results of soccer matches after conscious thought, after unconscious thought, or immediately. In Experiment 1, experts who thought unconsciously outperformed participants in all other conditions. Whereas unconscious thinkers showed a correlation between expertise and accuracy of prediction, no such relation was observed for conscious thinkers or for immediate decision makers.
