Week 10 Prediction Games: Vondelpark Birds

Hopefully you find this post and it's not buried under the avalanche of Dump Kaepernick, Fire Roman, It's Over, Start Over fanposts. Yes, the season could be over but the Prediction Contest goes on. Some of us still managed to have a good weekend, like me. I'm now sitting at +9PABC, which stands for Points Above Beecharmer. Sorry, with Urnext washed up and driving a toe truck these days I need a new rival. I considered Fred P. Soft but his an over-persistent mosquito routine is too much for me.

It took Ron Rivera three years but he finally presented some evidence justifying my opinion he would be a better hire than Jim Harbaugh. Thank you Harbaughcalypse for covering up these comments all these years. Ironically one of the people who benefited the most from Rivera this week was Edggy who vultured away some points to take back to the Alex Shack along with albertoleecho and "Hello Ladies" laZardo.

Have to mention our grand winner of the week, Naguabo. Although he should thank me, every time I rec a prediction comment the person shows up the Top 5 of the results. Speaking of those who should be thanked, MsEBNF predictions > EastBayNinerFan predictions. At this point she ought to prediction contest dump the Mister and take on Pinky, Inky, Blinky and Clyde alone.

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.
