Week 9 Prediction Games: Game for Men, Not Boys

NinersNation.com wake up from your bye week slumber ... wake up! I know it's difficult to get excited about a Rams game, Rams fans are excited at least.

Maybe you're focused on the election? Good luck with that and your candidates tonight, percentages say 48% of you will be disappointed. Twitter should be fun to follow, elections always bring out some bat [site decorum] crazy comments. Not into it, always the new Halo.

Week 9 results also means another prize give away for the highest score between Week 6 thru 9. And the winner is .... Str8Balr! Showed some real personal development avoiding the tie this time. Good luck getting that prize from Fooch.

The Big Five Finishers

Rank Screen Name Points Comments
bayboy 1st bayboy 17 How are those Chivas de Guadalajara?
bonbrillio 2nd bonbrillio 16 I should probably ask you the same question. Next week we are simulcasting this post en Español
Nick Bays 3rd Nick Bays 14 B's are ruling the Big Board. Wait, where am I at?
Takeo33 4th Takeo33 13 Is the main reason I think the Chargers don't make the playoffs. Norv curse is bad enough, but the Takeo curse is a 100% fatal.
nostocksjustbonds 5th nostocksjustbonds 12 Another Big 5 PED induced finish.
Ten-Man 5th Ten-Man 12 I saw that perfect score, good symmetry.

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.
