The 10th Annual Prediction Contest!

Unread postby Obadiah » 1 month ago

With the start of URI's 114th basketball season on Friday, November 10 versus UNC - Asheville, the Tenth Annual Prediction Contest is now open.

MAIN PRIZE

The winner of the overall contest will receive a $200 cash prize.

BONUS PRIZES

There will be two bonus prizes of $50 Mews Tavern gift certificates awarded this season based on:

1) Team Scoring -regular season only (to avoid ties, this prediction must be made to two decimals).

2) Average Home Attendance - regular season only.

In these two categories, if bettors submit an identical prediction to one already placed, they will be asked to re-submit prediction.

Note: In the event that a participant correctly predicts all three prize winning components, the prize would be doubled to a $600 cash prize.

PREDICTION COMPONENTS:

Each participant will make a prediction composed of five parts.

1. Regular Season Record (based on 29 games)
2. A-10 Conference record (based on 18 games)
3. Team Scoring Average, ppg (to two decimals, based on 29 games).
4. Top Scorer & Scoring Average, ppg (to one decimal, based on 29 games)
5. Average Home Attendance, regular season only (16 games - 9 conference, 7 OOC)

The contest is based on predicting the overall regular season record, so the other four components of bet essentially are tiebreakers and will be used to determine the winner according to the above sequence. To move successfully through the sequence requires either predicting the actual result or coming the closest to the actual result.

A suggested prediction format:

1. 24-5
2. 15-3
3. 68.42
4. Matthews, 17.8
5. 5,945

DEADLINE

The deadline for submitting a prediction is Friday, November 10, Noon.

OTHER GUIDELINES

• This thread is home where all predictions must be submitted.
• The contest is only open to bona fide URI fans and those meeting that qualification must have registered on this forum before September 1, 2017.
• Please monitor your private messages soon after you place your prediction, because if there is any problem or duplication with your bet, you will be notified via PM to take corrective action.

The betting window is now open!!.

I have the official final attendance numbers for the Ryan Center since it opened (see below). These numbers for some years are not just the regular season as per the rules of this contest. There were some postseason games (A-10 Tournament, NIT, and CBI) included as well where the selling base was zero as they were not part of season ticket packages. Most post season game attendance numbers were therefore low and decreased the overall season average for those years.

RYAN CENTER URI HOME ATTENDANCE BY YEAR
SEASON | GAMES | TOTAL | AVERAGE | POST SEASON
2016-17 | 16 | 82,761 | 5,173 |
2015-16 | 17 | 80,198 | 4,718 |
2014-15 | 16 | 86,461 | 5,404 | NIT 1
2013-14 | 16 | 71,058 | 4,441 |
2012-13 | 15 | 64,368 | 4,291 |
2011-12 | 15 | 57,428 | 3,829 |
2010-11 | 16 | 72,598 | 4,537 | CBI 1
2009-10 | 17 | 88,853 | 5,227 | NIT 2
2008-09 | 14 | 74,196 | 5,300 |
2007-08 | 15 | 88,731 | 5,915 |
2006-07 | 15 | 67,293 | 4,486 |
2005-06 | 16 | 76,150 | 4,760 |
2004-05 | 14 | 65,227 | 4,659 |
2003-04 | 17 | 97,762 | 5,751 | NIT 1
2002-03 | 17 | 96,194 | 5,658 | A10 1 / NIT 2

If it's just one decimal it's safe to assume a "0" is the second decimal.
Example: 74.2 = 74.20
