Prediction Week: Results from our Community NL Central Prediction

New, 38 comments

Thanks to everyone that participated in our Brew Crew Ball division predictions. All told, we got 178 predictions. After eliminating five unrealistic predictions (any prediction with a team winning less than 55 or more than 110 was wiped out), we had a sample size of 173 entrants. Here are our predicted NL Central standings:

Team Avg W Avg Finish
Cardinals 89.6 1.35
Brewers 86.1 2
Cubs 80.2 3.3
Reds 77.0 4
Astros 71.0 5.1
Pirates 67.3 5.75

 

All told, I'm pretty happy with these results. This is a pretty fair approximation of my expectations for the division this season.
