Week 15 Prediction Games: Aut Vincere Aut Mori

You know that episode just before the big revealing episode of your favorite TV show? The one where nothing plot specific happens but try to entertain you by advancing non-interesting, fringe plot lines you never cared about. The producers knock out a contractually obligated show while knowing they already got you hooked to the end so why try. Well that description summarizes this post. Either that or I had a bad week and lack the motivation to put in an effort.

I guess I could knock out a few Mark Sanchez jokes. What has 5 turnovers and ends climatically with a ball fumbling between the feet ... A Rex Ryan wet dream ... oh wait, Sanchez! Difference between Mark Sanchez and a coin flip ... tails has a higher completion percentage. Recently at the bar Sanchez used his money line "you can meet Tim Tebow" to bag Courtney Love but was intercepted by Paul McCartney and returned to become lead singer of Nirvana. Ok I'm being a little harsh, Mark Sanchez is no different than the rest of his USC graduates, finally ventured into the real world to get his ass kicked and humiliated. All this from the guy who got pissy a few weeks back with the Jets talk in the game thread, go hypocrite!

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.
