Divisional Round prediction game results ... for the both the Playoff Pool and BIT

Playoff Pool Contest

Only the Top 8 high scorers from this weeks Divisional Playoff Round advance to Championship Playoff round. It was a good week!

Top Scorer

49erLou - A thought a lot of players had good weeks but 49erLou edged them out for the top spot scoring 14 points. See you next week 49erLou!

Eliminations - Round II

howtheyscored - Like the Patriots, he comes down to a crushing end this week. Led the board most of the season but in the playoffs one bad round can sink you. To add even more salt to the wound, rival wjackalope is moving on with a dominate week.

Haggardninja - My favorite is now out of the competition. It's like the fans forget to burn up the phones and vote for the season's favorite? Happens every year, unfortunately Ryan Seacrest has to say goodbye.

ZeroIndulgence - I hope he didn't go to Vegas this weekend with his picks. They weren't good picks, not good enough for this championship group. Still to make it to the second round of the playoffs is a decent run.

mikeinsp - Mike you were just clipped. One extra point and you are tied for 7th place and moving on. Instead it's the long, cold offseason filled with me replying to every single one of your comments with a large image containing no title. If you only scored one more point ...

Jump for joy if you didn't see your name mentioned ... you're moving onto Championship Playoff Round weekend (assuming you ever found this Fan Post). Congrats to 49erLou, Rabbit T, wjackalope, leaping_larry, sf49ers123, DuikeBuike, Ninerfromacrossthepond and illini49er. You guys are a round away from the Super Bowl. 49erLou and Rabbit T, you better win this cause the rest have annoyed the jeebus out of me. Honestly I got nothing against Ninerfromacrossthepond, I'm still trying to figure out how he hacked my results to even qualify for the playoff pool.

Top 4 move on next week to play for the championship in the Super Bowl.

BIT Contest

WOOH! jtoj delivering the 12 point smack down! He's got a good lead going into the final games but still enough time to catch him.

Also some of you are getting plain lazy. Really, cannot even post the game format? Give me x,y & z all the same score please. Those aren't even the worst offenders. Who started the trend of posting the games in whatever order they felt like? Cough, cough fan cough under dogs! Did everyone else copy you? I don't get it. these3words, fractions and/or decimals will not be tolerated yet somehow you still did well.

Scoring Explained

Your prediction has these same three components as the actual game score.

1) If you predict the correct winner for an individual game, we will score your prediction against the actual game. If you predict the incorrect winner for an individual game, your prediction will not be scored.

2) Ideally, you will predict the exact point differential of the actual game. Say, for example, this is 45. If you predict a score with a PD of 45, the difference between your predicted PD and the actual PD is 0 (45 - 45 = 0). The worse your prediction, the greater that difference becomes. Therefore, the closer the difference is to zero, the better.

3) Ideally, you will predict the exact point total of the actual game. Say, for example, this is 65. If you predict a score with a PT of 65, the difference between your predicted PT and the actual PT is 0 (65 - 65 = 0). The worse your prediction, the greater that difference becomes. Therefore, the closer the difference is to zero, the better.

So, assuming that you predict the correct winner of the individual game, we simply add the difference between your predicted and the actual PD to the difference between your predicted and the actual PT. The closer this total is to zero, the better your prediction is. A zero exactly will always be a perfect prediction.

pPD = Predicted Point Differential
aPD = Actual Point Differential
pPT = Predicted Point Total
aPT = Actual Point Total
x = Subscore

|pPD - aPD| + |pPT - aPT| = x

That total becomes your subscore for each individual game. These subscores are then ranked, and the five best (including ALL ties) are awarded points. Perfect predictions are awarded 10 points. If the highest subscore for a particular game is not a perfect prediction, it is awarded 5 points. Points then follow in descending order, so that all of the second best predictions get 4 points, the third best all get 3 points, and so on.
