NFL Confidence Picks, Week 8 10/29 11-01-02/2015

Only 3 games ended with a 3 point or less score.  Washington Redskins, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers was a the only game with a mere point separating them.

Although not perfect I  will accept a week with 79% correct picks, and 80% of the total points available, as a pretty good week.

How does that compare with your picks.

DON’T FORGET SUNDAYS 9:30 AM GAME

For those of you who do not know how confidence ranking goes, let me explain.

If we were playing an office pool,(which we ARE NOT).  The object is to score the most points. To obtain the score YOU rank the teams by how confident you are a team will win its game.  EXAMPLE:  Say this week we have 16 games.  The team you are most confident will win you would assign the number 16 and follow down to the team you are least confident in and assign that number 1.   We use the Monday night game as a TIE BREAKER.  The tie is broke by the closest to the total (that is the COMBINED score of the two participating tams) final score, without going over.

If we were playing this is how my sheet would look;  My pick will be in bold Capital letters.  you can use circling, underlining, or highlighting.  I will show my correct points in Bold

YOU can adopt the scoring  described above.  Or, the optional method.  A  negative score for missed games.  We will continue to get a positive score for correct predictions.  EXAMPLE:   if you scored 1 pt on the first game and you had 15 pt on the second game and lost you would still have a Positive 1.  HOWEVER. with the same scenario new scoring system would result with a -14 score.

I will fill in my picks Thursday.  Until then feel free to:

Just copy and paste for your own Fun Pool Use.  Or to see if you can beat me.

IF YOU SEE I MADE A MISS COPY OF THE GAMES AND TIMES FEEL  FREE TO EMAIL ME AND TELL ME I GOOFED.

I had some requests from the people who copy and paste, for their own pool to move the network out of the score column.  I aim to please.  So I hope this is better

GOOD LUCK TO ALL.

BYE WEEK:  Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins

All times AST (mistakenly called EDT) by those who do not know the time zones.  HOWEVER: Remember to set your clocks back 1 hour before you go to bed Saturday.  As Sunday’s games will begin observation of EST.  (What a mess our government has unnecessarily punished us with…)

I am one of  those who live in the CENTRAL TIME ZONE.  Forced to live the summer 2 hours ahead of the sun, and winter 1 hour ahead of the sun.
