Title: Predict the Premier League
Post by: Boycey on August 06, 2018, 03:03:00 PM
Folks in the spirit of the prediction competition that worked so well during the World Cup I've created a league on this site https://premierleague.predictthefootball.com/ just enter the code 684689 once you have registered. I will donate 50 to the chosen charity of the winner at the end. Its a long season and your interest could wane if not going well so there is scope for a manager of the month competition too if others want to pledge 10/20 for each month..


The Predict the Football scoring system works as follows:

* 3 points for predicting an exact score
* 1 point for predicting the correct result (ie. you correctly predict the winner, or you correctly predict a draw, but by the wrong number of goals).
*2 point bonus for predicting the correct result if that result was predicted by less than 20% of your competitors.
*2 point bonus for predicting the exact score if that score was predicted by less than 5% of your competitors.

Yep. I'm continuing my MR2 approach to scudding them.

Sorry if I explained myself badly, yes it's free. I'm sponsoring 50 to a charity of winners choice but was throwing out the idea that others could sponsor monthly prizes for charity should they wish.

Why would you get 5  points for one correct score and only 3 points for another?

It's an extra 2 points for getting a correct result that less than 5% of people got. An unnecessary complication in my opinion.
