    Default Talksport Football Predictor Game

    Anyone interested in this? It's a variation on the football scores prediction game. It's Premier League only and you get positive points for getting the result (win-draw-loss) right, and more points if you get the score correct or the goal difference of the result. However, you get negative points if you get the scores wrong. To spice it up a bit, you also have a "banker" and an "insurance" option that can be played. The "banker" is played against one of the results and it will multiply your points score by 2 (or 3 for the smaller teams). Playing the banker well can reap rewards as you can get up to 90 points instead of just 30 if you get it right. Bear in mind though, that if your score is negative then it will also be multiplied, pushing you right down the scoring table. The other option is the "insurance" option. This enables you to peg the score for the fixture to zero, so that if your score is wrong the worst you will score is zero.

    The rules are explained a little more here: Football predictor game (IKTS) | How To Play | talkSPORT

    If you are interested and want to join the league, the code is:

    Cheers

    Ha ha. That's not bad actually, sometimes you can end up on about minus 100.

    I'm on minus 40!

    Getting the banker right is key, and I failed miserably.
