Staff Confidence Pool (No Spread) Week 17

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

Looking to dominate your office pool this season? Eighteen 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 types of games.

RESULTS FROM LAST WEEK

Jason Wood nearly pulled off his third win in four weeks, but he was narrowly edged out by fellow Eagles fan James Brimacombe 111-110. Brimacombe had fewer correct picks than Wood did, but Wood's bit bet on Buffalo ultimately cost him the win. The key to both of them finishing near the top was risking significantly fewer points on Seattle. While everyone on the board picks the Seahawks to win, their upset loss only cost Brimacombe and Wood a couple of points compared to everyone else.

As already mentioned, Seattle's loss was a huge hit, taking down everyone on the board. Pittsburgh's loss to the Jets also hurt most of the board, but Jeff Haseley scored well having risked 10 points on the Jets.
