Prediction Contests Are Just-For-Fun Games

"There are things that are uncertain for us, things more or less probable,

and we seek to compensate for the impossibility of knowing them

by determining their different degrees of likelihood.

So it was that we owe to the weakness of the human mind one of the most delicate

and ingenious of mathematical theories, the science of chance or probability."

Rules

 

For this Prediction Contest you are predicting goal difference for each match. 

To do that, you have to write in empty Cell a number - goal difference for each match. If your prediction is that Team 1 is going to win, you should type goal difference in appropriate Cell of T1 Column. If your prediction is that Team 2 is going to win, then type goal difference in appropriate Cell of T2 Column. If your prediction is that the match will end in a draw at the end of eventual overtime (BEFORE penalties/shoot out), then type a 0 in either T1 or T2 Cell (or in both, if you wish).
For All matches
the result at the end of eventual overtime (BEFORE penalties/shoot out) will count as final result.

 

Examples

Group A

Date and Venue Team 1 T1 T2 Team 2
April 27th 2017, h. 17:00, Nassau Stadium, Nassau Ecuador :ECU 2   :SEN Senegal
April 27th 2017, h. 20:00, Nassau Stadium, Nassau Bahamas :BAH   0 :SUI Switzerland

 

Scoring system: Basic number of points is 5

If you predict right winner for a match, you will get 5 points regardless of the goal difference.

If your prediction is perfect (correct winner + correct goal difference) you will earn 5+5=10 points.

Depending on difference between your prediction and actual result, earned points will differ.

 

Examples

Group A

Date and Venue Team 1 T1 T2 Team 2
April 27th 2017, h. 17:00, Nassau Stadium, Nassau Ecuador :ECU 2   :SEN Senegal

 

If Ecuador wins by 4, you will earn 8 points [5 pts for correct winner + 3 pts for goal difference: (5-2)]

If Ecuador wins by 2, you will earn 10 points [5 pts for correct winner + 5 pts for goal difference]

If Ecuador wins by 8, you will earn 5 points [5 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for goal difference: (5-6) - no negative points]

If Senegal wins by 1, you will earn 2 points [0 pts for correct winner + 2 pts for goal difference: (5-3)]

If Senegal wins by 3 or more, you will earn 0 points [0 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for goal difference: (5-5)]

 

Group A

Date and Venue Team 1 T1 T2 Team 2
April 27th 2017, h. 20:00, Nassau Stadium, Nassau Bahamas :BAH   0 :SUI Switzerland

 

If the match ends in a draw at the end of eventual overtime, you will earn 10 points automatically.

If either team wins by 1, you will earn 4 points [0 pts for correct winner + 4 pts for goal difference: (5-1)]

If either team wins by 5 or more, you will earn 0 points [0 pts for correct winner + 0 pts for goal difference]

 

In the Knockout Round, points will be multiplied by:

  • In the Quarterfinals, points will be multiplied by 1.25

TB Rules

If two or more contestants have the same number of points at the end, Tie-Break rule will be applied to break the tie.

Number or perfect predictions throughout the contest will be compared for the involved contestants. If they are still tied, number of second best scores will be compared, then number of third best results and so on.

 

Example

Contestant 1: 3x10, 2x9, 2x8, 2x7

Contestant 2: 3x10, 2x9, 2x8, 1x7

Contestant 1 will be placed ahead of Contestant 2.

 

Contestant with most points wins the competition.

 

The Ranking is determined by the Sum of Points the Contestant scores in all predicted Matches.

 

You can enter the Contest whenever you want. The moment you post your predictions is the moment when you are entering the Contest and your points will be calculated for all the matches you predicted AND which haven't started.
