Let's see how last week's predictions turned out for the Championship:
Middlesbrough 3 Leicester 3
Predicted Boro to win 2-1: -10 pts
Reading 2 Portsmouth 0
Predicted Reading 2-1: +10 pts
Leeds 4 Nottingham 1
Predicted a 2-2 draw. Nottingham's lost point could cost them a playoff spot: -10 pts.
Coventry 2 Watford 0
Pretty impressive result for Coventry. Watford is the highest scoring road team in the league. Predicted a 2-1 win for Watford: -10 pts.
Burnley 1 Ipswich 2
Predicted a 1-1 draw: -10 pts.
Hull 0 Millwall 1
Predicted a 0-0 draw. This is a big win for Millwall. The two points they gain will put them into the playoffs in my next projection: -10 pts for the prediction.
Cardiff 4 Derby 1
Predicted Cardiff 2-1: +10 pts
Bristol 1 Doncaster 0
Predicted a 2-2 draw: -10 pts.
Norwich 6 Scunthorpe 0
The Canaries beat up on the worst team in the league. Predicted a 2-1 victory for Norwich: +10 pts
Preston 2 Swansea 1
The opposite of my prediction: -10 pts
Crystal Palace 2 Barnsley 1
This is exaclty what I predicted: +30 pts.
QPR 3 Sheffield 0
Predicted a 2-0 victory for the Rangers: +10 pts.
Final result: 0 pts so basically broke even. Scored +15 two weeks ago so still ahead overall.
Here is a quick prediction for the April 5th match between Reading and Preston which was rescheduled due to Reading's FA Cup schedule:
Reading 2 Preston 1
Will be back later this week with an updated projection for the table.
