Hey fuckers. The division champions have been crowned so a lot of the final prediction points have been updated. Let's start with a little bit of news.
Folden scored a butt loving 40 point bonus by winning the pro pick'em this weekend for the season. Keep in mind that you need to continue doing your picks for the rest of the post season, as there are still points that come along with that.
the divisional and wildcard games predicted are worth 2 points each.
conference championship games are worth 5 points each
superbowl and College football championship are worth 10 points each.
COLLEGE BOWL PICK'EM
Good job to Eplin for getting the most points so far in the bowl pick'em. Keep in mind the scoring in this is a little bit different. You've all received 2 points per bowl win, 5 points for each win on the New Years 6 bowls, and 10 points for the Championship game.
So far the standings for the bowl pick'em look like this.
So the only people who can pass Eplin going into the final game are Colin, Me, Shawn, and Civ. There is a 20 point bonus associated with winning this so make sure you get your pick in.
Last pick'em Bonus.
Jim won the last pick'em bonus of the year with 11 correct predictions. 5 extra points were added into Jim's score.
I remember when I got Munez's predictions in and I was plugging them into the season I thought he was a fool. He had Houston winning the division and the Colts not even in the playoffs. NINE of us had them playing in the Superbowl & SIX of us had them winning it. Very good call on that Munez.
As far as what is left as far as Superbowl and BCS championship points go, here's all we got.
Me, Folden, and Geiss have Green Bay left winning the SB. Eplin & Civ have Seattle. That's it. 2 team race down the stretch.
At this point the only two people who have both of their Superbowl competitors in the playoffs are Geiss with Denver and Green Bay & Civ with Seattle and Pittsburgh.
Here are the points that everyoone got over this weekend and the total for the weekend in the pro predictions.
Houston winning division
Munez 15 points
Pittsburgh making the wildcard 15 points
Bottom 3 picks in 2016 draft
Denver wins AFC West
Everyone but Civ & Voyten
Kansas City wins Wildcard
Rob & Jim
Rushing title winner Adrian Peterson. 20 points for everyone except Adam, Civ, Gary.
Jim having already been in 1st and scoring 80 points in the predictions is obviously going to lead to a larger gap between him and second place.
Here are the points. I subtracted the bowl pick'em from everyone's score last week and re added it in here with the updated points, it made it easier for me.
So we have the point total up to last week + Prediction points this week + Bowl pick'em + last week of pro pick'em. The parenthesis are the 5 point bonus Jim won this week and the 40 point that Folden won.
Adam 547 + 30 + 60+8=645
Colin 535 + 50 + 62+10= 657
Jim 559 + 80 + 49 + 11 +(5)=704
Joe 481 +50 + 52+10=593
Folden 484 +35+51+7 + (40)=617
Civ 460 +58=518
Eplin 453 +35+67+8=563
Rob 431 +65+50+8=554
Gary 349 +30+56+10=445
1. Jim 704
2. Colin 657
3. Adam 645
4. Folden 617
5. Joe 593
6. Shawn 567
7. Eplin 563
8. Rob 554
9. Civ 518
10. Geiss 515
11. Munez 508
12. Gary 445
Only about 150 points separate 2nd place from 11th. So although it may bee too late for some people to catch Jim, it's still possible for the people lower to jump up to me and Colin and get into the money.
In next week's update we'll discuss the BCS National Championship game, results from predictions from that and the Wildcard playoff round. We'll also have our Bowl Pick'em and have a little more focus on the rest of the year.
