Week 7 Prediction Games: The Perfect Ninja

One of the rare Wednesday afternoon Prediction Game results posts.  The delay had nothing to do with tallying the Monday Night football scores.  No on picked the Jaguars.  First time ever since I've been scoring that no points have been given out for a game.  I'm sure this had an effect on the weekly totals which are also meager.  Still it was a brutal week.   We had four games where almost everyone's prediction was in sniffing distance and had to be right on the money to score points.  The difference between scoring points and not scoring was a 23-27 prediction compared to 24-27 prediction, just brutal.

Wasn't all bad news for everyone.  urnext was outpacing the Dolphins and Colts in the Suck 4 Luck contest but might have damaged his chances posting a 5 point weekend.  So far urnext was posting scores similar to Cuban figure skater, maybe that 5 pointer is a gift from the Russian judge. Like figure skating we ought to throw out the top and bottom score to eliminate bias and corruption.

The Big Five Finishers

Rank Screen Name Points Comments
Haggardninja 1st Haggardninja 10 A masterful weekend by the Haggardninja. Well not really, one perfect prediction in the Chargers @ Jets game. It's still a win and more points combined than the Seahawks @ Browns game.
Stupifyed 2nd Stupifyed 9 It's never a good idea to take a handle based on a Stuart Scott catch phrase. Credit though, he hit points on half of his predictions, boo-yah!
js1987 2nd js1987 9 Where did he come from and why is he using my password?
Rhombus 4th Rhombus 8 Ugh sorry, so many mistakes! I should have left in your mistakes.
Str8Balr 4th Str8Balr 8 Come on big money! So its a little pot of money. Still more than T.O. is getting, he spun a whammy.
benna11 4th benna11 8 This board is looking a lot like Week 1's results, not good news for me. Who is benna11? Another soccer loving Alex Smith blind-faither, oh boy!!!!

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.
