NFL Predictions Competition - Week 1

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Replying To Lockjaw:  "No.
It's one point only for getting a result right.
5 points only for getting the exact winning margin right.
3 points only for calling a draw.

I have a system in place from last year that works well and I'm not going over 80 predictions again to update the scores.
(I'm not disagreeing with you btw that draws are harder to predict. But it's what was agreed upon last year so I went with the same again)"
Ok fair enough. I'll be putting down fewer draws from now on so even if I think a draw is the most likely outcome if that's the case! Well done for doing this anyway, tis a bit of craic!

No worries it's a bit of craic to keep things interesting.
The leagues are very competitive and there are rarely any massive hammerings dished out like you'd get in the Championship. Although Leitrim did wallop Waterford at the weekend.
Keep the predictions going and I'll provide an updated leaderboard every Monday.
