NFL Week 1 Pick'em Picks

NFL Week 1 Pick'em
This year Mike, Travis, Matt and I are going to combine our powers to take down a $100 NFL Pick'em Pool on CBS Sports.

Straight up, no spread.

We picked winners and assigned confidence points via a shared google sheet. With some conditional formats set, picks are hidden until everybody has picked a winner and assigned confidence points.

Results from the previous week will be shared in the following week's blog post, including personal records!

Since there are four of us we agreed that home teams would win tiebreakers, in the event two of us pick the away team to win.

If the confidence points average out to the same score, the team with the larger spread will get the advantage.

In Week 1, we all picked the Baltimore Ravens, Los Angeles Rams, Detroit Lions and Kansas City Chiefs to win on the road.

The Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears were determined Week 1 winners thanks to the home team tiebreaker.

We awarded the Seattle Seahawks 14 confidence points thanks to being 9.5 point favorites, a point higher than the Philadelphia Eagles.

Matt was the only one of us to pick the Houston Texans to beat the New Orleans Saints, on the road at the Superdome!
