NFL Super Bowl XLVIII Prediction Games Results

It was either write this recap of the Seahawks Super Bowl victory or take out the trash. I decided to take out the trash, found more things to do than finally got around to writing this recap. Well that was that for the season, dark times. Lets try to look forward to new beginnings, a new stadium, new re-enforcements and this time a different final result. Sum it up Gandalf, " So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide."

Oops, we got a contest to wrap up. Our season champion is ... drum-roll ... benna11. His name will be forever etched in Prediction Contest lore. It wasn't a scintillating final performance by any means, he won by a raw score or 34 points. It beats last year's Super Bowl performance where no one picked the correct winner and I had to fish out a tiebreaker. Still a win is a win is a win. wjackalope finished 2nd just two points behind. I thought maybe it was his year, Shooter McGavin was finally going put on that gold jacket.

The B.I.T contest winner is albertoleecho. Didn't win the Super Bowl contest but at least walks away with the intercontinental prediction contest championship belt. nostocksjustbonds needed two points to tie albertoleecho but only managed one point. Otherwise there was no movement at the top of the leaderboard. The better predictions came from below: laZardo, pqlqi (Seahawk fan) and a long serial number my spreadsheet kept trying to convert into a floating point number, 52806336013866 (suspect a cowardly Seahawk fan).

Until next season! Fred is still secretly lobbying to add more points for predicting game winners, I'll take another look again towards tweaking the points and rules. Possibly I'll eliminate kickoffs. I'm sure I'll add another wrinkle or two into the contest next season.

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.
