Well, it’s come to that time of year again! Just as we finish celebrating the England World Cup win and hope they remember how to play with a different coloured ball, as the golfing majors come to a close without ‘Rors’ winning one of them, and we get tired of yawning at how unspectacular an F1 season continues to be, the UTS Prediction League rears its head once more, signalling the start of the football season again!
Something different is happening this season though…we are predicting League 2
For those not aware or new to the whole thing, the prediction league is a simple competition between dedicated, competitive predictors, as well as a few annoying pedants and copycats, to expertly calculate the scores of games between teams in our division. Here is the jist of it:
- Pick any 3 games from a game week (can be weekend or mid week - minimum of 6 games being played) and predict their scorelines.
- The scores can be any combination of home wins, away wins or draws - it’s up to you.
- An exact scoreline gets you 2 points and a correct result (i.e. you got the home win but not the same scoreline) gets you 1 point.
4.Weekly scores are transferred onto a weekly updated running table to see who is eventually crowned the prediction champion over the whole season.
- Predictions must be posted before the kick off time of the matches. If people are away or have internet issues then they can PM me their predictions leading up to the games and I will post for them.
Take a look back in the archives for the final standings and winner of last season (the name escapes me for the moment…) and to see how close things were between people.
Anyone can join in and have a bit of fun with it, you don’t need to be a Prediction League ‘veteran’ or anything! The first week’s games are up and running now, ahead of next Saturday.
Best of luck everyone. Play well, but more importantly, play fair!!
