This is probably one of my favorite things to do is predict games.  I am one of the few who take a chance and predict the results of game.  What I normally do is predict the winner and a guess by how much the team will win by.  Every week I post on Sunday the recap of how I did and keep a running record to keep myself accountable.  When I predict Scores I try and guess the difference but I also have some reasoning; usually if I go (1 to 7) mean a very close an upset or a very good game, (8 to 17) it means it will be a close/good game, (18 to 31) means it could turn into a game or the favorite will blow it open, (32 and up) usually means I am heavily leaning towards the favorite and could be a blowout.
