32 Predictions Contest, 2012

New, comments

I'm stealing this contest idea from an old professor of mine, Doug Drinen of Pro-Football-Reference, and heck, I might as well steal his directions, too (translated into baseball-speak):

Below you will find 32 pairs of numbers. In each case, you tell me which number will be bigger. One point for each correct answer. Most points wins.

Ties — and I expect there to be a nontrivial number of them — go to the side that had fewer votes. For example, here is a pair of numbers:

Wins by the Yankees
Wins by the Red Sox

Let’s say 41 people take the Yankees and 54 take the Red Sox. If the Yankees and Red Sox end up with the same number of wins, then each Yankee-backer will get a point and each Red Sox-backer will not.

To enter, fill out the Google survey after the jump. The grand prize is BtB bragging rights -- but feel free to make avatar side bets. Your choice whether the sparkly pony is for the winner or loser:

Ballots are due Tuesday April 3, midnight Pacific. In case of a tie, the winner is the person who entered first. Please help spread the word.
