Challenge #11: Predict That Stat
Each tribe will be predicting statistics in 6 of Tuesday night’s games. Each game will have 3 stats that need to be predicted. One member from each tribe is assigned to a game. These two members will be “bidding” to see who gets to predict each stat. I will send a sitemail to each player (from the survivorxii account) with the 3 statistics they are to bid on. They will send a sitemail back saying, “I can predict that stat within _____”. To make things easier for me, they will also include their prediction next to each bid. The player with the lowest bid will have to predict the statistic. If the actual statistic is within the bid amount (high or low) of the prediction, then they will earn a point for their tribe. If it is not within the range, then the other tribe earns a point. The tribe with the most points wins the challenge.
San Antonio vs. LA Lakers (last night’s game) – combined points for T.Duncan & T.Parker…
Player A – “I can predict that stat within 7 (prediction - 45 points)”
Player B – “I can predict that stat within 5 (prediction - 48 points)”
Player B wins the bid and must have a prediction within 5 points (high or low). Their prediction is 48 points. For Player B to win a point, the actual combined points must be between 43 and 53. The total combined points for Duncan & Parker was 35. Player B’s prediction was incorrect, so Tribe A earns the point.
A few notes:
-Your bids and predictions must be whole numbers.
-If you bid “within 0”, then your prediction must be exact.
-If both players make the same “within” bid, then both players will play their prediction. If both are within the correct range, then both will receive ½ point. If only one player is within the correct range, then that player will receive the full point.
-If a player fails to submit their bids, then the other tribe will receive all of the points for that game.
-Advantage for Tribe BCS: they win the overall tie-breaker.
You will receive a sitemail later tonight containing the 3 statistics in which you are bidding. Bids must be returned to survivorxii by 6:30pm EST tomorrow.
