    Football prediction point system

    Hi Guys

    I got one for you. I have a sheet that i have attached

    Is there a way I can come up with a function/formula that will check all the
    predictions against the actual match results as I enter them.


    Points are scored as follows:

    HOME WIN PREDICTED
    SPOT ON =*40 pts
    CLOSE = 20 PTS (-3 PER GOAL OUT)
    WRONG = 0 PTS (-3 PER GOAL OUT)

    DRAW PREDICTED
    SPOT ON =*50 pts
    CLOSE = 30 PTS (-3 PER GOAL OUT)
    WRONG = 0 PTS (-3 PER GOAL OUT)

    AWAY WIN PREDICTED
    SPOT ON =*50 pts
    CLOSE = 30 PTS (-3 PER GOAL OUT)
    WRONG = 0 PTS (-3 PER GOAL OUT)



    I am using Excel 2003.

    I would really appreciate it if someone could come up with the answer to
    this beauty!!

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Try the following in G6 and copied down

    I wasn't sure whether -3 per goal out means less than 3 or less than or equal to 3. Change the If test if necessary.

    Re: Football prediction point system

    Thank you my friend but it didnt work because;

    I put Blackburn V Wolwes 1-1 but the macth score was 2-1 to Wolves, so I my match prediction was wrong for this match. I get zero points plus I predicted Wolves goals wrongly, it is one goal diffrence so i get -3 for the game.

    Fulham V Aston Villa , My prediction was 2-1 to Villa but the match score was 0-0 so becaose my match prediction was wrong for the game I get 0 points for the game plus I predicted 3 golas wrong so 3* (-3) = -9 is my score for the game

    I hope It is clear now. Can you change the formula?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    It would assist if you would enter the actual results you expect to see, then we won't be guessing what you mean by -3 per goal out. Please make sure you list all possible combinations and ranges of scores.

    What in fact does -3 per goal out actually mean and how does it affect the points awarded.

    For instance does Wrong mean a wrong result, e.g. predicted a Home win and result is a draw and in which case if the value of that is zero what do you mean by saying it's -3 per goal out.

    Regards
