NFL Divisional Round Prediction Games Results

Another interesting weekend of football has concluded. Typically the Divisional Round yields one major upset but it didn't happen this year (I can't remember a year it didn't happen). Instead the underdogs were as flat as the Seahawk's passing offense. The Saints probably had the best shot at an upset but they countered Seattle with their own shoot themselves repeatedly in the foot offense. Carolina was looking zesty in the first half but the 49ers came out the 2nd half and dropped the hammer on them to win convincingly. The 49ers have had high exceptions but honestly this was the first time all season I recall the 49ers dismantling a quality opponent, maybe the team we were expecting has finally appeared just in time. Anyways, to make a short point long, those who anticipated the upset in the prediction game paid the price this week.

Historically the B.I.T. Champion rises up to take over the contest in the Divisional Round, the person this year would certainly be nostocksjustbonds. He dominated both the playoff contest and B.I.T. In fact, he had the top rated prediction in every game of the playoff contest, only the larger B.I.T pool managed to slow his complete steamroll. The good news for the rest of the competition is he had an awful opening week so he only sits atop of the B.I.T. by the smallest of margins.

Playoffs Results

Second round of eliminations this week with the Top 8 moving onto the Conference Championship Playoff Round. Next week the Top 4 will move onto the Super Bowl to play for the NinerNation.com Prediction Trophy. Don't want to make it this far only to fail now.

Divisional Round Eliminations

  • Naguabo - Our regular season 1st place finisher didn't bring his game to the playoffs. Last to make the cut last week and first to get cut this week. Disappointing Naguabo take your cursed 1st place trophy with you and get out of here ... you're fired.
  • TheFreakSF - Another strong regular season contestant who didn't find his footing in these playoffs. Not the same high profile flame out as Naguabo but the same bitter taste ... you're fired.
  • grantmp - I'm a bit shocked to see grantmp on this list. He was the best game winner predictor this season and thought that would serve him well in the playoff format however wasn't good enough to make this cut ... you're fired, get out.
  • bradyk2 - Followed up his playoff push last season with a return to trip the playoffs this year. His two upset predictions didn't come to fruition leaving him exposed ... thanks for playing, you're fired.
  • mrg80 - The last cut of the week is a bitter one. Predicted all four winners but the scores weren't close enough, missed the cut by 1 point. It was a strong campaign but the contest is an end result game ... it was a pleasure but you're fired.

B.I.T.© Contest Results

As mentioned above nostocksjustbonds shot up to take control of the leaderboard however he sits a top without a cushion. Anyone in the Top 5 has a serious chance to unseat him, anyone in the Top 10 has an outside shot, the rest probably need a perfect score to be back into the running. Good luck, three more games remain this season, that's depressing.

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.
