Week 10 Prediction Games: Who Guessed 45-7


The best perfect prediction I've seen, DAD OF VLAD nailing the score in the Packers blowout win over the Vikings.  I'd give him 15 points if I could.  Fortunately for fantasy opponents facing Aaron Rodgers it was such a blowout the Packers were able to put in a typical crappy SEC quarterback to coast out the final quarter .. and VLAD knew this. Sorry Christian Ponder fans, Drew Kerr gets to snicker another weekend although Ponder is worse than he thought.

It's been boiling for weeks but it's finally time acknowledge the prediction contest might have a flaw here.  Clearly we all know I'm talking about urnext and his contest bottom 2.9 point average per week.  People have found ways to game the prediction contest and inflate their points because we all know his career average is 1.7 points per week.  I've spent a good amount of time studying this so let me say clearly Alexandra Caroline, Lauren Williams, Ashton Torres and Cassie Trammell are all way hotter than Kelsi Reich to reference on a Tombstone.  Finally a non-related precautionary tale, NFL teams have been able to ride the run n' shoot offense to 10 wins and playoff birth but never could win a playoff game with that system.

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.
