Welcome to 2015 my friends. I'm going to start this week by posting the points, and then by doing a little bit of analysis afterward.
The big chances this week are from the NFL division and wildcard predictions. Here is how everyone did in those.
A couple of things happened from these results. Obviously, this hurts Gary a lot, as he had a sizeable lead over the rest of the field for 3rd place.
Munez and Jim benefited the most from this as they have pushed themselves into a better shot for the money.
What saved Gary a little bit here was that he and Rob finished tied for 1st place in the Pro Pick'em. This means that they each get 30 bonus points.
Lastly, on the point front, is the Bowl Pick'em. In this Munez is leading with 22 out of 32 bowls correct. However, if you remember, the bigger bowl games are waited more heavily than others. The points go
2 points for smaller bowl games
5 points for New Years Six bowl games (Rose, Fiesta, Orange, Sugar, Cotton, Peach)
10 points for National Championship
So, Munez had 3 of the New Years 6 games correct, while I had 5 of the 6. So, I am actually in the lead of this. Figuring out all of the numbers the totals look like this as a group.
Again, Gary hasn't done himself any favors in the Bowl Pick'em, dropping double digit points to both Munez and I, the closest people behind him.
So, total points and rankings to this point.
1. Joe 779
2. Rob 769
3. Adam 746
4. Gary 740
5. Munez 704
6. Jim 667
7. Colin 652
8. Geiss 649
8. Andrew 649
10. Shawn 629
11. Folden 583
12. John 376
I'll write more about the Analysis on things next week. As points won't change much. I just wanted everyone to know where they stood points wise.
