predict-a-league is a season long

Spot prediction Competition
The league predictions form the basis
of their predict-a-league score. So every game and every result of the
full season matters, as every minor change in the real league
tables impacts on their position within predict-a-league. The second
component of predict-a-league is a running spot competition which occurs
throughout the season at regular intervals and requires the users to both
predict individual events, e.g. Liverpool vs Manchester United, and
knowledge predictions, e.g. who will be this month's leading goal scorer.
The game is quite different from fantasy, dream and weekly forecasting
formats and regarded by regular players as a far more thorough test of
their football expertise. The game amounts to an innovative and intricate
way of attaching scores and values to, in effect, a mass of spread and
forecast bets. The window for entries should be in mid October.

SPC (The Sports Predictions Centre) offers 'fantasy betting' style
competitions originally based around correct score predictions on 10
chosen football matches each weekend. Each weekend (commencing 23rd March)
is a separate game with entries costing £2 each. Each entry entitles you
to 100 tokens in total which must be placed 10 on each of the 10 matches
chosen. You place your tokens on correct-score outcomes at their
associated odds. Once the 10 matches are complete, any correct predictions
are rewarded at their associated odds and all entries are ordered
according to their success.
The game is a little more involved than some score-prediction games but
using correct-score odds as their judging system gives the games a fairer
system for rewards than others in this arena. The game is being
started with a guaranteed £100 first prize for the first few weeks of
games, with the anticipation that this will be exceeded substantially as
the game grows in popularity. Prizes are generally shared out amongst the
best performers each week with a high percentage of entry fees going into
Games are generally priced up around 3 weeks in advance and obviously the
odds associated with the correct-scores can change over the course of this
time and so there is some opportunity to get some decent early prices as
part of your predictions. Payments are currently restricted to online bank
transfers and cheques (both deposit and withdrawal) although The SPC do
offer an account system so you do not have to make a separate £2
transaction for every entry. All in all, this is an interesting deviation
from the standard score prediction games and one that will be worth
keeping an eye on especially if they prize pools get to a decent level.

It's very simple - you just need to correctly predict 3 results at the weekend and you could be on your way to £5,000! Entry to the competition is FREE, and will run through the 2002/03 season.
Late entrants may well have a distinct advantage with this game.
You need to register first and be logged in to vote and take part in the competition. Once you have voted for at least 3 weekend results you can choose any 3 of your votes for the prize 'treble' competition.
Your 'bank' is calculated by multiplying the accumulated odds of the 3 correct matches against a "notional" £10 stake. If one or more of your match predictions are wrong your bank will reduce by £10. The competition takes into account the difficulty of predicting each game, and even if someone is bottom of the league, you could win the next week because of the effect of multiplying 3 sets of odds
The voting coupon contains the next 4 to 5 days football fixtures (the weekend coupon is available every Thursday).
To vote, click on the icon next to a match and select a home win, draw or away win in the window that pops up and add your comment. (The radio buttons on the face of the coupon are for calculating returns not voting)
To enter the competition, click on any 'voted' icon and a window will display all the matches you have voted on in this weekend coupon, you can then select up to 3 matches to submit to the competition. (You can change your competition selections any time up to 11am on Saturday).
Effectively you need to vote twice. Firstly (once the coupon is up on Thursday), on the main coupon vote on at least 3 matches that take place on Saturday or Sunday. Then click on one of the matches you have already voted on (i.e. on the 'voted' button next to the match which is highlighted in white, rather than original 'vote' in red) - this will bring up the tipping competition box and then you select 3 of your tips for the £5k weekend tipping competition. You need to select your 3 by 11am each Saturday.
