Confidence Picks, Week 15 12/17,19,20 /2015

RECAP: I see 2 games I considered upsets.  Raiders over Broncos and Steelers over Bengals.  NO OT games this week.  Games with a 3p  (FG) difference.  And we saw San Diego with a failed attempt to put the game into OT,  as they failed score with 2 seconds left a game an incomplete pass which would’ve ended the game was blown dead due to a false start moving them back to the 11 yd line.  Where the pass was incomplete to end the game. Two chances with 2 seconds and OT at hand the Chargers failed on both attempts.

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:  NONE
