CHN Predictions League: Newcastle United vs. Norwich City

Sometimes, the obvious choice is obvious. Last week, 7 out of 8 participants picked Robin van Persie to score at least one goal, and the wisdom of the crowds prevailed. This week's game between Newcastle and Norwich City probably won't be quite as easy, but that means opportunity for those looking to close some ground on the leaders. A group of 6 is breaking away from the peloton, but there's still enough time left in the season that this is still truly anybody's game. Rules and an updated table follow the jump.


  • 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 Sunday).
  • 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.)
