Week 3 Prediction Games: Tony-Ten ManWayne


Congrats to Ten-Man for a perfect prediction and tonywayne for two near perfect predictions to win the week. The rest, you'll have the rare opportunity to stare adversity in the face.

There were less predictions submitted this week so I was going to make a crack about the bandwagon beginning to empty. Than the 49ers lost and that bandwagon might really be emptying, eh Fred? Surprisingly I noticed it was several of the regulars missing, must have been a busy week or weekend.

Special Announcement: 49ers play on Thursday this week, that means our infamous option game. You may choose to predict the 49ers game on Thursday or you may choose to predict the option game that will be played later in the week. You get to pick one game or the other, not both. Fooch will post the Week 4 games later in the week, decide your strategy.

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.
