Predictor League 2017/18

Predictor League is BACK

In lieu of BTG not being on the boards these days I will run with the Predictor League until he returns.

We missed the first week of fixtures so started on Gameweek 2

It is time to put aside our differences and unite together to see who can be crowned champion Predictor for season 2017/18.

Defending champion from season before last is GHODFATHER

Each week there will be six fixtures from the weekend for league games only. If there is a midweek card those fixtures will be included. Any re-arranged games are likley to figure as well. During the course of the season there will be at least two guaranteed double fixture game weeks.

A correct prediction for the result of a match will gain you 3 points. If you get the margin of the score correct but not the correct score you will get 4 points. If you pick the correct score then you will get 5 points.

Again during the season you have two jokers to play. A joker will get you double points on that game week. It is up to you when you want to use it but it must be clearly stated at the time of making your predictions that you are using your joker. Last season using a joker in a double game week did not prove to be fruitful.

Predictions must be made before kick off. If there is an early match and that is missed then predictions made for the remainder of the matches will be accepted as long as they are made before kick off.

I will take the most recent predictions. This allows you to make early predictions to get something on the board and then amend closer to the time.

If you miss a game week you will be awarded the lowest score that was scored in that game week. If you miss four weeks in a row you will be deemed to be no longer taking part.

If anybody has any queries then just raise them at this stage. Hopefully all of that makes sense though.

No

It’s not in the rules but it could be in future. I’ll suggest some changes mid summer like

Points - 10 for correct score, 5 for margin, 3 for result
Missed week - get average score 3 times before zero score
Clean sweep (LogieB) - bonus 10 points
Double Weeks - 4 set double weeks a season
----------------------------------------------------------------------

If you did that and someone managed it I think you’d quickly have a runaway winner. My own opinion is keep it as tight as possible for as long as possible.

Back to the two points for a win and one for a draw and 3 for correct scores. No jokers in double weeks.

Just my opinion and certainly not because of this years way it’s worked out.

As always it’s fanatstic you do this mate so I’m sure we’re all very grateful for a bit of fun in this. 👍

I was just copying the English Predictor league though that doesn’t have Jokers

The guy at the top has a good chance of the title this year. Big scores but also big gaps
