2018-19 Prediction League - First Six Games

by Snowball » 02 Aug 2018 08:37

The First Six Games

I know we often have "The Next Six Games" threads.

This is for those taking part in The RFC Predictions Threads


DERBY —————— Home
Forest ——————- Away
BIRMINGHAM ——— Home (Carabao Cup)
BOLTON —————- Home
Blackburn ————— Away
Villa ———————— Away


For me a lot depends on those first two games. Lose badly to Derby, we might get thrashed at Forest and morale/ confidence would obviously be lower and we could suffer.

But even if that were to happen, home to Birmingham is a great chance of a solid win, as is home to Bolton. Blackburn might be anything, but we have a reasonable chance of a point there. I can't see Villa being a force this season, so we could get a result there also.

IF (and it's a big if) we could WD our first two, I think we could W3 D1 of the next four. If we lose our first two I think we still ought to finish with W2 D2 L2 or W2 D1 L3

I'm going for:

3-2 WIN DERBY
1-0 LOSE Forest
3-0 WIN BIRMINGHAM
2-0 WIN BOLTON
1-1 DRAW Blackburn
1-2 WIN Villa

W4 D1 L1 11-5
W3 D1 L1 8-5 League

That feels WAY too optimistic!



=======================================================================

For those in the prediction thread I'll score predictions as follows.

No separate scores for individual results. We already have that!

Exact total goals for = 10 points
Exact total goals against = 10 Points
Exact goal difference = 10 points
PERFECTION BONUS = 10 Points

(Yes, getting the For, Against, GD perfect scores 40 points)

BEST goals FOR prediction (if not exact) = 5 Points
Next best goals FOR prediction = 4 points
Third best goals FOR prediction = 3 points

ditto goals against

For simplicity I will treat the Carabao Cup games as a league game, and imagine 3 points for a win etc.

Best Points Prediction Scores 10, next 7, next 5. WORST (furthest from actual) scores -5

PLEASE POST SCORES AS THEY WOULD APPEAR IN THE FIXTURES/RESULTS, HOME TEAM FIRST

SO IF RDG are to lose 2-0 at first post 2-0 Forest LOSE, not RDG 0-2

HOUND (in Predictions League)

1-2 LOSE DERBY
1-0 LOSE Forest
1-0 WIN BIRMINGHAM
1-0 WIN BOLTON
2-1 LOSE Blackburn
