    Confidence points are key. Slide the bowl games up or down to match your "confidence" in your pick.

    If you are absolutely certain that Auburn will lose to Florida State make it your number 1 pick.

    The games you have the best feeling about should score the most. Games where you have no freaking idea maybe move towards the bottom.

    It would only be right that you put highest confidence on Auburn.

    That would be the only way you might determine where I stand on that particular game. Otherwise, I pretty much keep my mouth shut because you never know what will happen. Besides, the points count for every team that wins.

    Confidence points add a whole new roulette wheel to the situation. Remember when ALL of us gave Florida over Louisville our highest (at least almost) confidence... :huh

    In! So many sure things to pick, FSU over Auburn, Oregon over Texas, etc, it's going to be a struggle to pick top confidence game! :D

    I've finished first twice, second once and third once yet I have zero confidence and only a presence of a process. I rarely compare stats but I do look at records and who they've played. Beyond that, I don't like giving up a ton of points and in home games that are close on points, I nearly always favor the home team. I usually favor SEC teams also and have been know to follow my heart (coughAuburncoughcough) instead of my head. That's it....you'll never make money in Las Vegas with me.

    There is a LOT of luck involved, but you've been consistently doing well....that points to you doing something right. :thumb

    I'm still a quite surprised that after 15 weeks and 285 picks during the regular season, we had a 4 way tie at the top; 8 within 6 points and all 12 regular participants within 20. So pretty much everyone had a chance.

    I made a few picks, but for much I may actually research.



    Ahhhh fuck, who am I kidding at 0500 on Saturday I'll dash through the picks and move a few up and down. Looking at season records of teams in exactly three match ups. :lol3
