It’s time for another year of Confidence Pool Picks! For those who were around last year, the site has gone through quite a makeover. Last year, I won my Yahoo Pick ‘Em confidence league (my trophy is proudly displayed on this site) and shared my strategies on this blog. I know at least a bunch of you were in contention or won your leagues as well! Thank you all for participating in the discussion and helping me craft my strategy as well.
I started this blog because I couldn’t find good info on confidence pool leagues after my dad roped me into his work league. He paid for my entry and I’m happy to say I won him back my entry fee, his entry fee, and made a profit. Now that I have a year of confidence league blogging under my belt, I hope to bring you a few neat things for this coming year. I’ll continue to provide win probabilities based off various models (last year I used a Moneyline and AdvancedNFLStats model average). The upset picks based off Yahoo public data will also continue. But I’m excited to announce that…
I’m starting up our own confidence pick league! I will give away a $25 Amazon Gift Card for the overall winner, and a $5 gift card for the weekly winner. I might also throw in some The Bucko Soap Scum Cleaner (one of the products I sell). If you’re interested in playing, join the email list by entering your email address to the right. I will send out details as the season gets started! It’s time for the people here to put up or shut up!
[Update] Going to tweak the prizes a bit… instead of the weekly prize, I’m going to do the following:
- Assign 5 points for a 1st place finish, 3 points for a 2nd, and 1 point for a 3rd
- Give out a $20 gift card for the winner after the first 8 weeks, and the winner for the 2nd 8 weeks (scores start over from zero).
- The overall season prize stays the same.
