Do you like the playoffs? Do you like predicting things? And do you think the NHL’s claim that SAP has a guy who can get 85% of playoff series right is a bit unbelievable? Then do we here at Puck++ have a contest for you!
For the first (and hopefully not last) time, Puck++ is hosting a Playoff Prediction Challenge. To enter, all you need to do is provide the probability of the home team winning each series, round by round. The entry form and a full set of rules are available here – entries will be accepted at any time, however you’ll only be able to provide predictions for any series that has not yet begun, so don’t wait until the last minute to get your picks in.
What do the winners get? Glory, and the right to call yourself the smartest person in the hockey world for the next year*.
So what are you waiting for? Entering takes as little or as much time as you’d like, so fire up R or Python or your crystal ball and get predicting!
*Puck++ provides no guarantee that you will be recognized as the smartest person in the hockey world.
