New Years Point Update

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.

Munez 125
Jim 125
John 120
Joe 105
Rob 105
Adam 105
Geiss 90
Shawn 90
Colin 75
Andrew 75
Gary 60
Folden 60

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.

Adam 57
Munez 53
Joe 51
Andrew 50
Shawn 45
Jim 45
Rob 45
Folden 42
Colin 42
Geiss 40
John 40
Gary 40

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.
