Week 13 Prediction Games: Discount Retailer Alex


Four weeks until the NFL post season along with the illustrious Prediction Game playoffs begin. I've been crunching the numbers and surprising no one has been eliminated. Consider the worst of you the Seahawks or Cardinals, there is still a chance. CheekyMonkey is gonna need at least one 60 point week but it's not mathematically impossible. Two sixty point weeks and he might win the regular season contest. Ok, the math majors will probably point out four modest 30 point weeks will do the trick. Have you been paying attention mcwagner?

Top 16 players move onto the postseason, which is predicting the NFL post season. Does not mean the prediction contest is over for urnext and friends, we have an invitational tournament. Well actually its the same game, just you cannot play in the championship bracket. Still a postseason win is redemption. Unless you are Drew Kerr who probably has no chance considering he doesn't predict 49ers game, but he does say the Saints pass the eyeball test over the 49ers, NFC Championship game rematch with Saints at Packers, like Rocky II it will be better. Despite Ten-Man probably finishing in the Top 10 I'll probably select Rabbit T to his post season spot because he draws more attention in the comment section. More details next week.

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.
