Staff Confidence Pool (No Spread) Final

Weekly Staff Confidence Pool (No Spread). NFL Office Pool Cheat Sheet

Looking to dominate your office pool this season? Fifteen Footballguys.com staff members are here to help you out. Each week they will pick the winners of every NFL game, and rank their selections based on how confident they are that the team will win. The most-confident pick gets 16 points, and the least-confident gets just 1. We'll even total up everyone's picks so you can get an overall consensus on who our staff think will be the most likely winners. Each week we'll announce the weekly winners, and track the overall record for the entire season. A couple of things to note before we get to the picks:

  • Picks for this pool are straight up (no point spread considered).
  • Picks are due on Wednesday nights, and will not reflect any late-breaking news. If your league allows for last minute changes, please make adjustments to your office pool accordingly.
  • Our staffers also play in weekly picks Against The Spread, and Survivor Style 'Pick one Winner each week' formats as well. Check out the other weekly articles for more help with those type of games.

RESULTS FROM LAST WEEK

This week saw the highest point totals of the season. In a week where playoff implications caused some crazy things, the staff made picking the winners look easy. Top finisher for the week was Sean Settle with his season-best 123 points. Settle missed three games this week, but managed his confidence points to finish at the top of the board. Andrew Garda and Matt Bitonti each only missed two games but finished four points behind Settle due to point allocation.

Green Bay's loss to the Lions may have been the biggest upset of the week, and the Saints rested their starters cost over 100 confidence points to the board as well. Overall though, the board did very well.

OVERALL RANKINGS

Brimacombe made a valid attempt to catch Larkin but wasn't able to close the gap. Larkin took over the top spot in Week 5 when he and Brimacombe tied for the top weekly spot and never looked back. Winning Week 16 basically sealed the deal for Larkin and he closed out an impressive season with 110 points. Nice job all

OVERALL HEAD-TO-HEAD

Here is how the top four teams going into Week 17 did. Tuccitto admitted he bucked the trend hard in the hopes of pulling out a big victory, but the upsets didn't come. Pasquino and Larkin only missed three games each, but Brimacombe did the best of the final four. Here's how each game broke out and how the final four finished.
