NFL Divisional Round Prediction Games Results

Apologies to any one who has been waiting on this post. It's been ready since Monday but predictably the story turnover rate in the Fan Post section has been ridiculous after the loss. Crossing my fingers hoping this post will last on the front page long for enough for people to read it.

So not a lot of add, as the previous week the favorites won across the board again. It's been a strange playoffs in that since. Unfortunately I can't really tell who is the favorite heading into the Super Bowl, the advanced stat guys and football fanatics say the Seahawks but Vegas opening line said the Broncos, its rare these groups disagree.

Playoffs Results

benna11, beecharmer and wjackalope were the only ones cold blooded enough to take the Seahawks so it was easy points for them. benna11 and beecharmer were also smart enough to pick the Broncos so safe to say they are onto the Super Bowl. Speaking of which, I'm still trying to find out from Fooch if Super Bowl contestants can be flown out to the Super Bowl to make their picks but I'll predict that answer is no. The contest isn't exactly void of prizes, it's possible the contest winner gets offered the Cleveland Browns head coaching job. For record, I called the Browns this afternoon and informed them I was taking myself out of the running for the position.

Conference Championship Eliminations

  • AKinferno - Your run finally came to an end my friend. Those Pats were indeed frauds preying upon a joke of conference until finally running into the one viable playoff team this weekend. As for the 49ers, I feel an apology should come from Carlos Rogers, Donte Whitner and Eric Reid to all the fans. Anyways none of those guys will cover for you in this contest so you're fired.
  • Nick Bays - Made the same makes as AKinferno, no winners, no points so your trip ends here. Another solid run, hope to see you again next season but you're fired.
  • nostocksjustbonds - You're not going to like this news. Two people picked both games correctly, two people picked no games correctly and four people picked one game correctly. Unfortunately for you those other three people had the best prediction for their game and your one winner finished 2nd best ... so you're fired and everyone else advances tying for 3rd place.

Playing in the Super Bowl for the Prediction Contest Title

It's a five way grudge match between benna11, beecharmer, wjackalope, albertoleecho and me. Let me just say I've been laying in weeds knowing the only week I have to win is the final week. So all you b**ches and bee-charm-itches are on notice, I'M THE BEST IN THE GAME! DON'T YOU DARE THROW THOSE MEDIOCRE PREDICTIONS AT ME!

Of course you'll need the rules and the rules are essentially the same. Pick the game winner and be the closest to the actual game score to win. The one wrinkle for the Super Bowl is the tie-breaker. Pick the total combined offensive yards for both teams along with your game score. In the result of score tie, the combined total yards tie-breaker will be used to determine the winner. Godspeed Mr. Goodspeed.

B.I.T.© Contest Results

nostocksjustbonds sputtered this past weekend posting a whammy. albertoleecho retakes the lead with a 3 point performance to give him a 2 point cushion heading into the Super Bowl. nostocksjustbonds, McTee, Ten-Man have a chance to take first with a good Super Bowl prediction. Around 11 other contestants need a perfect score in the Super Bowl and for albertoleecho to wet the bed to win the B.I.T©. Everyone else is playing for pride at this point. It would be nice if Burnin Davis or ak4niner could finally find some contest pride. I expect you all to show up, play hard and debate whether the Broncos will beat the Seahawks by 4 touchdowns or 5 touchdowns. I'll certainly be wearing my authentic 1982 Broncos, orange crush style beanie cap which is scratchy as all hell to wear ... and don't ask cause I have no idea how it came into my possession, I think I inherited it from someone who isn't even dead.

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.
