    Your question makes a lot of assumptions. A game of football isn't a simple chance event, there are a lot of factors that go into determining the winner of a game, both quantifiable and not-quantifiable.

    But if we clarify the question a bit, we can approach the answer differently. If you mean predicting the winner of 13 consecutive football matches by guessing alone, and if we also assume that win/lose/draw are equally likely outcomes, then the chance of guessing correctly is

    (1/3)^13, or approximately .0000627%
