Do you think Sissoko can regain his scoring touch against the Blues? - Paul Thomas
After a few weeks off, the Predictor's League is back! And this week we have an updated table, giving two games' worth of scores in there. Jim still leads the way with 43 points. I've climbed up the table a bit, thanks to somehow calling the 2-2 draw against Liverpool. Oh ye of little faith! I was the only one to tip Newcastle to get a point!
Want to show me how its done? It won't be hard....I'm usually bad at this and all you have to do is follow....
- Before each game, predict the winner (or you can predict a draw), the final score, and goalscorers. The deadline will be 5 minutes before kick-off.
- 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 new 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.)
- Standings will be posted each week.
And here are those standings!

We add a little bit of fun to this with a prop bet. Get it right and earn a bonus point. This time, over/under number of Newcastle shots from outside the box? We'll set the O/U at 7.5.
Remember, submissions close five minutes before kickoff. Good luck!
