Yet another chance to show the world how smart you are. Someone is going to cleanup on this site if they can forecast deaths, guess RAW ratings and pick football games correctly.


This is how the pool will work.

1. Anyone wanting to participate may do so. Picks must be in before opening kickoff the first playoff game of the weekend

2. Picks will be made straight-up AND vs the pointspread. Participant will receive one point for each correct slection.

3. Wildcard round picks will be made in this thread.

4. At the end of the playoffs (and including the Super Bowl) whoever has the most correct picks wins.

5. In the event of a tie, the tie-breaker will be whoever forecasts the Super Bowl score the closest. It is not necessary to sumbit a forecasted final score for any other game.

6. The overall winner gets a DVD from Khawk's collection - which is the BEST wrestling DVD collection (bar none) on the internet. Picks will be logged once the opening kickoff of the first playoff game starts, so please no editing after that time.

Since picks are made both straight up and vs the spread, these are the opening numbers. I will post the Tennessee at San Diego number whenever I get it. Here are the other numbers for you to chew on a bit.

NFC

Washington At Seattle (3.5)

NY Giants At Tampa Bay (3)

AFC

Jacksonville (1) At Pittsburgh

I'll start:
Washington at Seattle (3.5) - Seattle, both points and straight up.
Giants at Tampa Bay (3) - Tampa Bay, both points and straight up.
Jacksonville (1) at Pittsburgh - Jax, both points and straight up.
Tennessee at San Diego (8.5) - Titans with points, Chargers straight up. Closer than people think.

I'll wait a few days to make my picks but right now they'd be the same as Buddy's.

I read Jacksonville is now -1.5 over Pittsburgh and Tampa is now -2.5 over the Giants. What are we using for a final point spread? Are we sticking with the opening line or adjusting right up until game time?

Just curious. Here's my picks (with the adjusted line--The picks won't change if the line ends up changing  or if we go with the initial lines for clarity in handing out points):

 

Washington at Seattle (3.5): Point Spread: Washington, Straight up--Washington 

Giants at Tampa Bay (2.5): Point spread: Tampa, Straight up--Tampa

Jacksonville (1.5) at Pittsburgh: Point spread: Pittsburgh, Straight up--Pittsburgh 

Tennessee at San Diego (8.5): Point spread: Tennessee, Straight up--San Diego

Just use the opening line from the Las Vegas Hilton. The problem with using the closing line is that one guy claims a game went to +6 at one sportsbook while another guy finds a sports book that had it at -4 on a 24-19 game.

My picks - gonna walk the line a bit

Washington at Seattle SU: Seattle ATS: Washington

NY Giants at Tampa Bay SU: Tampa Bay ATS: NY Giants

Jags at Pittsburgh SU Jags ATS: Steelers

Titans at San Diego SU & ATS : San Diego


Edited 1 pm Saturday to take Steelers plus points but Jags straight up. Yes I nknow Jags are one point faves, I consider the game a coin flip. Basically hedging.

:(

 

The best thing for everyone playing to do is wait for me to pick and go the completely opposite way.
