To this day, I still don’t know if it is better to predict with just the default 2/1 odds or do I get more points if I replace just the one nominee that isn’t first place… How do I explain this LOL?!
Okay, so in Goldderby’s Oscar predictions for Best Picture Three Billboards is in 2nd at 12/5 odds. All the nominees in every Oscar category of mine are 2/1 odds. I have the movie winning Best Picture, but should I take it out and put it back in first so that I can have 12/5 odds, in order to get more points, or would I get more points if I just stick to 2/1 for all the nominees?
Just thought I’d check for the answer before potentially damaging my point totals in my Oscar predictions this year.
Any help with question please? From anyone?
Yes you get more points from 12/5 than 2/1 and swapping doesn’t effect your other odds so you should swap it out and back in.
^ The irony of the only person replying to a thread being on the original poster’s ignore list (last I checked).
Really, whenever the odds of any contender improve, you should swap it out and back in, just in case you decide to move it up to first later.
You get 200 points for a correct prediction at 2/1 odds and 240 points for a correct prediction with 12/5 odds.
It used to be that if you made any edit to a category, all of the odds in that category would update, but that is not the case anymore. It is easier to game the system now.
