View Full Version : The Predictions Game

My mate Mikey (Offside Trap on here) does something on Facebook called 'The Predictions Game'. Idea is that each week you will try and predict the scores of that week's Premier League matches. He's got it all set up with leagues, promotion/relegation and fixtures against one another which is actually quite fun.

I want to do something similar, but simpler. Each week I'll post the upcoming matches for that week's Premier League games (just like Redders does for his Last Man Standing) and you can post your predictions for each game's score until the deadline. Scoring will be as follows:

1 point for a correct home winner, but 3 extra points (so 4 points total) for a correct scoreline.
2 points for a correct away winner, but 3 extra points (so 5 points total) for a correct scoreline.
3 points for a correct draw, but 3 extra points (so 6 points total) for a correct scoreline.

The one who scores the most points claims that week's title as 'Best Predictor' which is a very distiguished honorary title not bestowed on many. :lol:


For those of you who are in, below are the matches for this week's Predictions Game. Submission deadline will be 1 minute before the first game starts. :ok:

Hmm I picked them off the Prem site, but I guess it took my timezone for the games. It's indeed +1 GMT.

Don't mean to hijack this, but I forgot all about it until now (and I guess you did too)! So I'll initiate WEEK 2:

http://i63.tinypic.com/v7z5go.png

Cardiff - Brighton
Huddersfield - West Ham
Leicester - Burnley
Newcastle - Bournemouth
Southampton - Watford
Crystal Palace - Spurs
Liverpool - Fulham
Chelsea - Everton
Arsenal - Wolves
Man City - Man Utd

I can probably calculate last week's points this afternoon, too, if you'd like.

I wouldn't mind doing this together though. ;)

The idea at first was to make a league structure with divisions (as how my mate does it on FB), but I'm not sure if I can get enough people together to participate.

If we would get 16 participants we could make 2 leagues of 8 with the relegation/promotion. Each player would play eachother once so over a 7 week period (8 weeks if you do playoffs) you'd finish a season.

Any thoughts on this?
