NFL CONFIDENCE PICKS WEEK 13 12/01- 04 – 05/2016

The final four for the NCAA Football Championship is out.  I would like  to know HOW Ohio State, which did not make the BIG TEN Championship game. DID not win their Big Ten Division Championship team is IN the Playoff.  Penn St.  Won their Division.  Penn State won the BIG TEN CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.  PENN ST.  handed Ohio St. Their lone loss this year.  HOW could you put Ohio St. In and Penn St. Out.  

M-O-N-E-Y!!

Most likely.  I heard the “talk”, that  Ohio St. is a bigger draw than Penn St. Just would like to know; if you leave out the M-O-N-E-Y.  What qualified a Non-conference winner to replace a conference CHAMPION.

 

RECAP: Week 12 saw only 1 OT Game.  That being theChiefs victory over the Broncos.  A mere 2 games within 3 pts.  Panthers 32 Raiders 35.  AND the OT game Chiefs 30 Broncos 27.

My big surpriswas the defeat of the Seahawks.  Unfortunately where I live we only have 2 stations which broadcast the 16:05 game or 16:25 game.  (This isn’t the first time I hav missed a game because one or the other failed their commitment to broadcast a game).  I understand from what I read Seattle had several starters injured.  AND Wilson being sacked 4 times just in the first half. But that is no excuse.  The BACKUP PLAYERS at this level should be able to perform too.  But as Russell Wilson said; “THEY MADE THEIR PLAYS AND WE DIDN’T” 

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.                                                                                                                                                   * Keep in mind; NFL  sometimes uses, “FLEXIBLE SCHEDULEING”, which means they        may change game times.  Unless I catch the last minute change you will see the original schedule.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL.
