NFL Confidence Picks, Week 9 11/05-08-09/2015

Last week summary:  I missed 3 games.  I scored 86% of points under the positive only system,   BUT; only 64% under the plus minus scoring system.  which means I missed some of my high picks.  (Actually only one High pick, and it was a surprise to me.  HOWEVER;  it was an overtime game.  HOW did the Falcons, allow the Buccaneers, to stay close enough to to even put it in overtime).  By the way the Colts lost in OT to the Panthers.  That makes 2 OT games.  Is it just me or are we really  having more OT games this year?

We saw 4 games with a mere FG as the difference.  ONE of them with a combined 101 points, (the Giants with 49 and the Saints with 52).  Kind of seems like both teams’ defense had the day off.

ONE game, the Seahawks, Cowboys game was so close just 1 point separated them at the final whistle.

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:  St.L Cardinals, Bal. Ravens, Det. Lions, Hou. Texans, K.C Chiefs, STL Seahawks
