The BSG/WoW 2014 NBA Playoff Prediction Contest


@richhagler won last year’s contest with 87 total points. Could you be next?


Want to participate in the Boxscore Geeks / Wages of Wins playoff prediction contest? Select the team that you think will win each matchup and predict the correct number of games, and you could win*!

*Editor’s note: at the moment there is no prize; this is just for fun and bragging rights.

Scoring for the contest is as follows:

  • 5 points for selecting the correct team.
  • 2 points for selecting the correct number of games (only awarded if the correct team was selected).

This scoring system originated with TrueHoop’s Stat Geek Smackdown.

The form below is for all first round matchups, and whether you enter the contest here at WoW or over at BSG, the form is the same (so no need to enter at both sites!). Keep checking back, because not only will we be posting forms for subsequent rounds, but we’ll also be posting about the results. Please remember the name/username you used with the form, as we’ll be using it to identify top performers. If you want to change your picks, remember to use the same user name — we’ll take the most recent answer.

And a special bonus instruction for people who don’t like to read instructions (no, I’m not being sarcastic): when you make your picks on the form, you must select an option for all teams, even the ones that you think will lose. So make sure that every team has a response!

This form will close at 12:30pm ET on Saturday, April 19th, 2014, so get your picks in before then!
