The Niners Nation prediction contest returns for another week. Like always, we’ll have six games this week. The 49ers game, Thursday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, Monday Night Football, and two random games of choice. You predict the score of the games, and those closest to the final score accrue points for the week and cumulative throughout the season. At the end of the season, we take the Top 16 contestants and run a Top 16 Playoff contest to determine the individual season winner. For those missing the cut, we’ll do a separate Open tournament. Please take the time to read the rules and ask any questions you might have. Good luck to everyone this season.
If you are new here or want to refresh your memory, here are all the rules and regulations for the contest. Even if you’re returning, give the rules a double-check. Please read over that (it’s reasonably short), so we can have consistency in the posting.
All times below are Pacific Standard Time.
49ers @ Bengals - Sunday 9/15 10:00 a.m.
Bucs @ Panthers - Thursday 9/12 5:20 p.m.
Remember to follow the required score posting format, which is “Team A @ Team B: A score B score.” That is visitor @ home: visitor score - home score.” Here’s an example of how to do it.
If you think the 49ers will beat the Bengals 27-21, here’s how it needs to appear:
49ers @ Bengals: 27-21.
If you think Cincy will win 27-21, your score should look like this:
49ers @ Bengals: 21-27.
You can always bold the team you think will win. That isn’t required, but it’s a good idea if you messed up the score. So, 49ers @ Bengals: 27-21.
