Week 17 Prediction Games: The Freak

Week 17 Prediction Contest finished with a flurry. Lots of contenders were playing for their playoff lives and 19 contestants put up a double digit point total this week. I won't keep the suspense hanging, check down below for the regular season ending results. If there are any scoring errors this week, make sure get the grievance posted in the comment section ASAP.

Alas the long awaited playoff and non-playoff pool rules have arrived. Give it a quick read. Still, the most important thing to know is just show up and post your predictions next week. I'll sort it all out. It's essentially the same game with an elimination process tacked onto the playoff contest. Also all playoff and non-playoff participants are automatically entered into the BIT contest.

One last note, did anyone figure out all the awards?

Playoff Rules

1. The top sixteen finishers in the regular season prediction contest move onto the playoffs. Everyone tied for 16th place is included in the playoffs, meaning if 2 people are tied at 16th place than the playoffs will start out with 17 contestants.

2. The scoring system will remain the same as the regular season. Predict the game winner and score closest to the actual score to accumulate points. Still 10 points for predicting a perfect score, if not 5 points for 1st place, 4 points for 2nd, 3 points for 3rd, 2 points for 4th and 1 point for 5th place.

3. Each week will have eliminations. The bottom tier predictors will be eliminated with the rest moving on to play another week til the SB where a winner will be crowned. Each week is scored individually, meaning everyone starts back at zero points. Ideally the bottom four people will be eliminated each week.

4. All 16 contestants play the Wild Card round. Top 12 advance onto the Divisional Round. Top 8 advance onto the Championship Games. Top 4 advance onto the Super Bowl.

5. Like entering the playoffs, being tied for the last advancement spot will move a contestant onto the next round. For example if two people tie for 12th place on Wild Card weekend than both will advance to the next round. If your score is zero after any round than you are eliminated. Sorry even if tied for the final advancement spot a zero gets you eliminated. Why I say ideally the contest will try to eliminate the bottom 4 players each round, possibly more than four get eliminated, possibly less than four get eliminated.

If you don't understand, ask questions, keep playing and follow along. Continue to make good picks and you'll keep playing.

Bignerd Invitation Tournament

Those who do not qualify for the playoff tournament receive an invitation to the Bignerd Invitational Tournament (BIT). What's an invitation? Well, if you see the prediction contest and want to play than you are invited. Like the regular season the scoring format will remain same. Points will accumulate each week with the top scorer after the SB crowned the winner. All Playoff Contestants are also automatically dually entered into the BIT.

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.
