Prognosticating: Buffalo

By 11W Staff on August 27, 2013 at 12:42p
Two tickets to Eat Too, Brutus IV could be yours.

We're under 100 hours. Kickoff to Ohio State's season – a season carrying massive hopes and expectations – will be here before you know it, so it's time to get your first score prediction of the season in.

If you're new around here, this is a weekly contest we hold soliciting scores. To enter, leave a comment with your prediction of the final score of Saturday's tilt with the Bulls. If you nail the score – or come closest – you'll take home two free tickets to the tailgating event of the year, Eat Too, Brutus IV, to benefit DownSyndrome Achieves (which is scary-close to selling out, so if you stink at predicting scores, you may want to pull the trigger on tickets).

If you can't make the event, no worries. These tickets are transferable. Sell or give them to a friend. Trade them to another member of the site for Helmet Stickers. Your call, really.

The Buckeyes opened as 33½-point favorites over Buffalo and the line is now hovering around 35. Use that information as you will.

The fine print:

  • Must be 18 years-old or older.
  • One entry/comment per person.
  • Duplicate predictions are ineligible — first come, first serve.
  • Deadline for entries is kickoff.

Good luck!

Same prediction, at the same time. Talk about a coincidence. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

Two people at the beginning have it, too.  I know, because that is what I was going to predict... day late, dollar short for me, too.

*I'm not longer doing predictions on my blog. Won't have free time to do it this year. Last year data got deleted since my computer crashed before I could analysis it. Sigh.

Also, I'd like to propose that we standardize on a format for these score predictions, so that it's easy to do a quick search and make sure your prediction hasn't been made already.  It seems like XX-YY is the most used format, so how about everyone uses that?
