    So here is week 18, I will post the results for week 17 when I get home this afternoon but with the early New York match on Wednesday I needed to get this posted right away. It is definitely good to be back home, and to have some of the craziness in the personal/work life die down a bit. Thanks for sticking with this.

    Mod Edit:
    Alright scores for week 17 now attached, congrats to FlashMan who ran rough shod over the group last week, and as always Mucky who remains atop the overall. Looks like I picked a good week to miss making my guesses, it was a brutal week for most everyone.

    Ummm somehow I had juxtaposed the match scores last week. I finally have caught a break and had time to update tonight. The winner for week 17 was actually StillKickin.

    Scoring Guide
    E = Exact Match (Count x 5)
    M = Correct Margin (Count)
    C = Correct Clean Sheets (Count)
    R = Correct Result (Count x 3)
    A = Road Win (Count)
    B = Blow Out (Count x 2)
    B+ = Blow Out Bonus Points (Count)

    How to Play:
    Scoring rules can be found in this thread. Below you will find this weeks matches, simply predict the score for some or all. Missed or wrong guess will not result in lost points. Each week I will total the results and provide standings. This is similar in concept to the Guest Guesser in some sports pages, or the Pick 'em games on ESPN, or the result guesser on MFLS.

    Oh and one last thing if you have to change a pick before the cutoff date please copy your entire original pick list and just update inline. I do not plan on storing the predictions offline and will just work backwards from the last valid post as I total up the points.

    Mucky asked about how I read the scores. In my week 1 guesses I have

    Columbus at Colorado 1-2

    Meaning I read this as Columbus 1 Colorado 2

    This Week's Matches:

    Chicago at New York
    Portland at Chivas
    Colorado at Toronto
    New England at Montreal
    Kansas City at Houston
    Los Angeles at Vancouver
    Dallas at San Jose
    Philadelphia at New York
    DC at Columbus
    New England at Kansas City
    Montreal at Houston
    Portland at Dallas
    Colorado at Salt Lake
    Chivas at Los Angeles
    San Jose at Vancouver

    Guesses are due by 1pm EDT Wednesday 7/18.

    Hi Ed, thanks very much as always.
    I'm not sure whether my weekly score was correct or not though as I know I got 1 exact match (Chicago 1-0) and a few results right in the week 17 thread but maybe there is some crossover from week 16 or something?

    I will revisit the scoring tonight. Perhaps there was a transcription error on my part.

    I'll attach a pdf of some random outputs based off of my Excel model for the above games for anyone that may be interested. One week in and I'm not convinced it holds too much merit yet but work to be done.

    Various outputs for this weeks games in pdf form, from the model that I'm trying to put together. In case anyone wonders re: my picks above, I found the win%'s to be a better indicator than the most likely score last week, so I took the most likely score that matched the highest win% (if that makes sense e.g. home team win has the highest win% I took the most likely home winning score - the result is not always shown on the attached).
