2019 NFL Playoffs Prediction Challenge! Your Invitation

January 2, 2019

NFL PlayoffsThe NFL’s regular season is over which means one thing: 10 teams will be vying for NFL championship glory in Super Bowl LIII.

The Prediction Challenge! is easy to play: just pick the game winners and the margins of victory each weekend (no more than four games to predict at once) during the playoffs. Each of the four rounds counts equally towards a player’s final score!

The Entry Form requires players to begin by selecting the teams that will win each game, and the margin of victory.

Like other Prediction Challenges, points will be awarded based on whether the winning team has been correctly predicted, and the predicted margin of victory will also be scored as well. (For the latter case, if one team is predicted to win by 3 points, the other team wins by six, that prediction is incorrect by nine points.)

Bonus points will be awarded based on how many winning teams are correct, as well as how many scores are predicted correctly to within three points.

There is no limit to the number of players who may enter.

It’s $10 to play, as usual!

Hope you’ll join us! Kickoff is Saturday afternoon!

The FIFA World Cup is the final round of a competition held every four years. The competition is open to each FIFA national association, and nearly two years of playoffs brings the field down to 32 teams. The World Cup is the most-watched sporting event in the world.

Tournament Format, and how we play the Prediction game

There are eight groups of four teams each, with the top two teams qualifying for single-game knockout play. Each team plays each other once in the group stage, for a total of three games. Teams earn 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw.
