Best League In the World Series™

When watching the Barclays Premier League, you are often told “It’s the Best League in the World™”. But is that really the case? Well to figure out what the best league in the world, or least the most exciting is, I’m going to find out tw0 things: One, which league is the most competitive, and Two, which has the most goals per game (because goals are entertaining, even if rubbish). To find the most competitive league, I’m going to use Standard Deviation, a statistical measure of spread. It finds the spread from the mean; the lower the Standard Deviation, the more competitive league. I’ll then rank each league in Standard Deviation and goals/game, add the ranks together, and divide by 2. For example, a league that ranks 15th in competitiveness, and 10th in goals/game will have a rank of 12.5 (15+10=25/2=12.5).

I’ll be doing installments by continent, and the first up will be South America.
