Week 15 Prediction Games: If You Don't Like That You Don't Like Prediction Games

What is this nonsense of football games being pushed to Saturday, Christmas Eve? Sundays no longer good enough for the NFL? Rain, blackouts and blizzards but no Christmas stops the show? Should a long practicing pagan like me really have to shift my weekend routine over a little holiday? Christmas wasn't even that interesting when the Christians stole it the first time. Actually the schedule shift works out on my end. Will be at mom's house for Christmas Eve and can catch the game(s) there. Whereas I have to be with the rest of relatives Sunday and even if the creepy pagan faction had a TV they would elect human sacrifice over letting me watch it.

Here is to still outside looking in and the results of Week 15.

The Big Five Finishers

Rank Screen Name Points Comments
grantmp 1st grantmp 12 krakatoa grantmp heating up.
Ni9er 2nd Ni9er 11 Can't-Stanza Award 2011
Drew Kerr 2nd Drew Kerr 11 The Colts and Kerr get off the schneid. Still missing Manning, still missing 49ers predictions.
howtheyscored 2nd howtheyscored 11 Remember two weeks ago when he was whining about making the playoffs without having a double digit score for a single week?
PHUT! 5th PHUT! 10 2nd redemption candidate of the week. 1st in the Golden Nuggets but last in the Prediction Games.
seton hall and steelers 5th seton hall and steelers 10 A mighty one week performance for the Steeler guest star. Nearly produced as many points as Roethlisberger interceptions.

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.
