2022 NFL Playoffs Prediction Challenge! Your Invitation

January 12, 2022

NFL PlayoffsThe NFL’s regular season is over which means one thing: 14 teams will be vying for NFL championship glory in Super Bowl LVI February 13.

The Prediction Challenge! is easy to play: just pick the game winners and the margins of victory each weekend (no more than six games to predict in any given weekend) 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, Victoria time!

December 12, 2021

image-3

Max Verstappen secured his maiden World Championship with victory in the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton finishing second as the race ended in a nail-biting one-lap sprint after a late Safety Car. The result, which saw Valtteri Bottas finish sixth and Sergio Perez retire, means Mercedes have clinched a record eighth consecutive constructors’ championship.


Top Point Drives of the Day

  1. Pierre Gasly (AlphaTauri-Honda): 35 points, finishing as part of an AlphaTauri 4-5 after qualifying P12
  2. Max Verstappen (Red Bull Racing-Honda): 29 points, winning the race after leading only during the final lap in a day-long chase after Lewis Hamilton
  3. Yuki Tsunoda (AlphaTauri-Honda): 26 points, earning his best-ever finish in fourth to cap his first Formula 1 season

Our Game

Congratulations to John Lo upon his first Formula 1 Prediction Challenge win! John cruised to an easy victory, taking the season lead after the fourth race and finishing well over 100 points over his closest rival.

Wes earned second place on the season, while Ian’s strong showing in the season’s final race earned him third, just ahead of Danielle. Ian has earned a prize in each of the four years of the F1 Prediction Challenge!

🏁 Hamilton Draws Level on Points in Controversial Debut Race at Jeddah Corniche Circuit

December 5, 2021

Lewis Hamilton won a controversial debut Saudi Arabian Grand Prix from pole position ahead of Max Verstappen and Valtteri Bottas amid two red-flag stoppages. The result means the two championship protagonists go to the Abu Dhabi finale level on points.


Top Point Drives of the Day

  1. Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes): 29 points, thanks to the pressure put on title rival Max Verstappen, winning from P3
  2. Carlos Sainz Jr. (Ferrari): 26 points, earning 8th place points after a poor P15 qualifying
  3. Max Verstappen Red Bull Racing-(Honda): 25 points, earning second place from P3 qualifying

Our Game

John Lo extended his lead further with 155 of a possible 166 points and looks unassailable entering the last race of 2021 next week. All players second through fifth in the standings will have to wait for Abu Dhabi as their Saudi Arabia predictions were identical. Wes and Danielle hold down the last two prize spots, while Ian and John Cavelti can still aim for podium glory.

Saudi Arabian Grand Prix Predictions

December 4, 2021

Formula 1 2018

We are essentially of the same mind this week. While there are six rows in play, four of them are due to outlier selections from Doug, John Lo and Michael and will likely not affect our standings. The close title race and the even closer track walls will have to create all the tension in this round!

Good luck, and enjoy the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix!
