Week 2 Prediction Games: 27-24 Lightening Strikes Twice


The 49ers lost this past week and the prediction scores are down from Week 1, coincidence homers?  Oh well, I am ready to turn the page on September's annual "How did we Lose that Game?"  Bengals are next with the potential we could be witnessing the beginnings of the Ohio Valley Defense (OVD for short) .  Dominant (Nazi) pass rushing, TE covering weak side linebackers, corners who play the run like defensive tackles and genetically altered Captain Marvel safeties who pick up receivers after the catch and carry them back to the end zone for a pick 6 .  History will forget this defense actually started on the West Coast with the 49ers.  A little insider tip, pick the Bengals.

Maybe I sound bitter.  Maybe after 2 weeks I have a total of 2 points.   Projecting ahead that means I'll end up with a final score of 17 points for the season.  I haven't had this much trouble scoring since ... screw it, I'm bitter.  Let your wild, superior Prediction Game minds finish that thought.  Onto the results.

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.
