Week 7 Prediction Games: Wanna Be A Baller


A cluster of perfect scores struck this week. If you're on the list like me you're happy else you're steaming mad like manraj7 who was snake bitten by the manraj7 rule. Not a lot to add this week. If I had won the week, this section would have been a big, big celebration of me but atlas I was outscored by a returning champion. LOL, not you 49erLOLu.

Little bit of housekeeping. leaping_larry and Haggardninja had tied for the first contest prize two weeks ago. Decided to run a tiebreaker on who posted the highest score the following week. Should have mentioned this last week, Larry won by a thrilling score 1 to 0 over Haggardninja, who continued his whammy streak to two this weekend.

Str8Balr 1st Str8Balr 17 Our returning champion, at least one of them. Really, you couldn't submit a tiebreaker last February?
Nick Bays 1st Nick Bays 17 One of those real name people. I'm always hesitant to embrace, a.k.a. the Brendan Scolari rule. Speaking of which I saw that ffffff ... person posting on Football Outsiders last week. Thankfully Nick is nothing like him.

Scoring Explained

Prediction Contest Rules and Guidelines

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.
