English Premier League 2011-2012 Season-Long Prediction Contest
To enter, in the comments below simply rank your prediction for the end-of-season table from 1 through 20. The tie-breaker will be first selection of champion and then relegation. I will at a few points through the season provide updates on standings and discuss the competition.
The metric of skill used as the baseline for evaluation in this competition will be the Ladbrokes odds for winning the championship as of August 4, 2012, as below.
I have searched and requested from several sources, with no luck, data on currrent team salaries and player values. If I can come across this information, I'll add it in as a second metric of skill (and pointers welcomed in the comments). For those new here wanting to get up to speed on this notion of "skill" in prediction, please see the posts here and here.
The winner of the competition wins a signed copy of The Climate Fix, paperback edition. Good luck!
PS. For those looking for the Bundesliga prediction contest, join here by August 5th!
