I know we're a bit away from the playoffs still and don't even know the match-ups but this is a rules and sign-up thread for the game. It works out pretty well and I guess I can calculate the scores and such but if anyone wants to help that's good too.

RULES

1: Bets

- before every round of the playoffs, every participant puts their bets like below (ex. 2009 Round 1)

Cavs in 4

Celtics in 5

Magic in 6

Heat in 7

Lakers in 6

Nuggets in 6

Spurs in 7

Blazers in 6

2: Match-up Scoring

- I will look at the actual results

Cavs in 6

Celtics in 6

Magic in 6

Hawks in 7

Lakers in 5

Nuggets in 5

Spurs in 5

Rockets in 7

- the scores for each match-up are assigned using the Golf System

- for the first round match-ups:

You get -2 for guessing exactly correct

You get -1 for getting the team right but being only 1 game off

You get 0 for getting the team right but being more than 1 game off

You get +1 or more for guessing the wrong team

So for example, the bet above would get these scores based on the actual results:

0

-1

-2

+1

-1

-1

0

+2

3: Overall Score

We simply add the scores for all match-ups. So for Round 1, the bets above have a total score of -2.

The lower the score the better and whoever has the lowest score at the end of the game wins.

4: Bonus Points

Conference Semi-Finals = -1 for correct team

Conference Finals = -2 for correct team

NBA Finals = -3 for correct team

In every subsequent round, you basically get an extra -1 on every score where you guessed the correct team. You still get anywhere from +1 to +4 for the wrong team though.

Wow, this is a really good idea. I never actually thought about this or decide to do anything like this. Sign me up though, I'll be interested in keeping updated with this and making predictions. Once again, this is a really good idea. Nice job, I hope it goes well.
