2017 NFL Playoff Picks Contest

Post by Brada » Thu Jan 05, 2017 5:46 pm

Let's see who can come up with the best picks against the spread for the duration of the NFL playoffs. You are picking these games AGAINST the point spread. Your picks are locked in by kickoff of the first game that weekend. To avoid ties in games, I added half a point to all favorites that weren't already favored by a half a point increment.

Person with the best total record after the SuperBowl wins (must pick all 11 playoff games to qualify)

Wild Card Weekend

Oakland @
Houston -3.5

Detroit @
Seattle -8.5

Miami@
Pittsburgh -10.5

NY Giants @
Green Bay -4.5

I have come to the conclusion, that with hundreds of millions of dollars tied up with corporate sponsors... the NFL is rigged.

good lord, what a game....8-3 finish. I probably won't ever put up numbers like that again.

What a crazy sports year with some of the greatest games in quite a few sports.

Villanova winning the championship at the buzzer.
Cavs come back from down 3-1.
Cubs break the curse and come back from down 3-1.
Clemson comes back to beat Alabama.
Patriots come back last night, 1st SB overtime.

What a year in sports.
