SEVENTEEN weeks; FIFTEEN OTs .
When you check my picks. You will notice I picked the PATRIOTS as my lowest pick. I really feel they will fall this weekend, despite the numbers. ALSO Ihave a strong feeling th surging feel good COLTS are so numb with confidence; I picked them to UPSET the Chiefs at home.
I Guess you could say I overestimated the COLTS. Who would think KC would have come out and play like a PROFESSIONAL team. And he COLTS would play like Amatuers. Maybe the pressure of the importance of the game would affect them that badly. Even the VEGAS odd makers were taken aback by the lackluster performance. BUT that is why they play the game.
BELOW is a link to the NFL rule changes for 2018
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. You add up the TOTAL CORRECT PICKS.. That would be your score. We use the Monday night (Last game played) as a TIE BREAKER. The tie is broken by the closest to the total (that is the COMBINED score of the two participating teams) 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 pts on the second game and lost you would still have a 1 on regular scoring.
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.
