    Default FIFA World Cup 2014 Boardies Predictions Contest

    Here are the rules:

    - 1 entry per person, what ever is the first post in this thread for you that is the one that counts.

    - You can modify your entries up until the due date but let me know if you do.

    - Last day to submit an entry is June 11 at 5:00 PM PST.

    Let's make things interesting: I'll give the winner a $25 Amazon gift card. If anyone would like to donate something to increase the prize or prizes, it would be awesome.. I'll keep track of entries and points.


    Format:

    - Pick 16 teams that you think will advance to the Round of 16. You get 1 point for every team to guess right.

    - Pick 8 teams that you think will advance to the Quarter Finals. You get 2 points for every team to guess right.

    - Pick 4 teams that you think will advance to the Semi Finals. You get 3 points for every team to guess right.

    - Pick 2 teams that you think will advance to the Final. You get 4 points for every team to guess right.

    - Pick 1 team that you think will win the World Cup. You get 6 points if you guess ir right.

    - Predict the score at the end of 90 minutes for the Final (for tie-breaking purposes, no points awarded).


    Good Luck

    Putting USA to the quarters is a big homer pick. I don't expect to win this.
