The CHN Predictions League marches on, with perhaps 5 or 6 legitimate contenders left vying for the title. Only 5 fixtures remain, but anything can happen with Stoke on the schedule. Will Rockets4LIFE's strategy of picking Ba and Cisse to score every time pay off yet again, or will wuds100's usual pessimistic outlook rule the day?

Rules

  • Before the game, predict the winner (or you can predict a draw), the final score, and goalscorers. The deadline will be 5 minutes before kick-off (1555 GMT on Saturday).
  • Predicting the outcome correctly will give you 1 point.
  • Predicting the exact score will give you 5 points. Failing to predict the exact score but getting the total number of goals correct will give you 1 point, as will predicting one half of the score. If you predict a total of 6 goals or more, you are ineligible to receive points for predicting the correct goalscorers (see below). However, if 6 goals or more are actually scored, the ineligibility will be lifted. This rule is designed to prevent people from predicting an abnormally high score in order to better their chances of earning the bonus for predicting the scorers.
  • For each goal scorer you pick correctly, you earn 2 points. You may not pick more scorers than you did goals in order to hedge your bets. (In other words, if you predict a 1-0 score, you can only choose one scorer.)
