    Round of 16: Predictions Contest

    Okay, here's your chance to prove your betting prowess. At stake: bragging rights.

    Predict the outcome of each of the Round of 16 games, including score.

    Winner is the person with the best record (a perfect 8 of 8 correct wins).

    Ties decided by the person with the most correct exact scorelines (i.e. if one finalist predicts 3 correct scorelines, and the other 2 correct, the person posting 3 correct wins. If still tied, then decided by the lowest margin of error in total aggregate goal difference in the other correctly picked outcomes where the scoreline was not exact.

    If predicting a draw, also add outcome of penalty shootout.

    If, for some reason, there is still a tie after these criteria, I'll determine if there is another criteria by which to separate the winner (i.e. who had the lowest error on their worst prediction).

    EXTRA: for fun, you are allowed one [1] Mulligan. You can, in advance, choose one game where you think the outcome is too close to predict. If you choose the outcome incorrectly, that game will still end in your CORRECT column. In the case of a tie in the contest, those with the best score WITHOUT needing a Mulligan will beat those who needed a Mulligan for their score.

    To enter a Mulligan: put in your predicted outcome in the regular table of 8 games. Then, in the Mulligan section, add your selected Mulligan game a second time, but this time with the alternative result.

    NO entries/edits after the starting whistle of the Brazil-Chile game.

    For the Mulligan, I intended for the game to be entered 2x: once, in the list of 8 games, and then, an alternate result in the Mulligan section. Not a big deal, but edit if you like, before the deadline.

    If you enter a game just 1x under Mulligan, I'll assume that is your primary prediction (and that your alternate result doesn't have an exact scoreline).

    As we'd expect, so far, the group leaders are heavily favored by most contestants over the runner-ups. Will be interesting to see if any upsets emerge. So far, only eye-switcher is predicting a squeaker upset of Columbia by Uruguay. I expect we might see a few thinking USA can get past Belgium.

    It's interesting: while the group stages have had quite a few upsets, the R16 results may prove to be much more as expected.

    I'll run the contest again for the quarterfinals, which should be much less predictable.
