I have a projection issue. We have a weekly contest where scores are accumulated over 14 weeks so I have mean, STDEV, all that good stuff. Now I want to predict the likelihood of each of these 6 people finishing in 1st, 2nd or 3rd. We have 3 more weeks remaining and you get a score each week. Each of the 6 have different totals right now and are averaging different weekly scores with different standard deviations.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example

Team A currently has 1010 has been averaging 80 with a STDEV of 8

Team B has 1000, averaging 70 with a STDEV of 11

Team C has 1100, averaging 90 with a STDEV of 5.

Team D has 1050, averaging 85 with a STDEV of 15

those are just made up numbers but I just want to get how to do it? what are the odds of Teams A, B, C, and D finishing 1st, 2nd, or 3rd? thanks
