2023 Post Season - Conference Round

Post by Barry »

playoff 2.jpg
With only two games this weekend, and the possibility of a four way tie, I have a thought.
I know the thought might be to make your picks as late as possible to see what the others are picking.

I am suggesting that maybe you each IM me your picks, and post here that you have, and when they are all in, I post them for all to see. Meanwhile I can post mine since, well, I suck.

Since it is only Tuesday, I will give y'all until Thursday to comment before I post the lines.

We could add some flavor to it. Say, not just pick against the spread, but all three different lines for each game, each worth 2 points for a correct guess.

Winner
Over/Under
Spread

Max score would be 6 total points for each game for a total of 12 points.

Either of these options sounds good to me.

We will go with part of this. The lines are so close, I think picking the winner with and without the spread might be redundant.

So, as usual with the winner using the spread, the o/u and which QB (using all 4 games) will have the most passing yards, and which will have the least.

San Francisco +2.5 at Philadelphia -2.5
over/under 46
Cincinnati +1.5 at Kansas City -1.5
over/under 47

Most passing yards (Hurts, Purdy, Mahomes, or Burrow)
Least passing yards (Hurts, Purdy, Mahomes, or Burrow)

and just post it here.

Those are some tight spreads for sure...

Philadelphia -2.5
Under
Cincinnati +1.5
Over

Most passing yards - Mahomes
Least passing yards - Purdy

May the Force be with all of you... :smilevike:

This is what I have with VikingLord taking the playoff title.

FullWood might be 14, but I am not sure.
He sent his picks in aa pm, and I replied asking for clarification.
I wasn't sure who he was picking as the highest and lowest yardage players.
But, best case scenario, he had Purdy getting the lowest and still wouldn't catch VikingLord.
Eagles
Under
Purdy

Bengals
Over
burrow
So, congrats VikingLord.

I'll put something up for the Super Bowl next week. Feel free to look at previous seasons' SB thread and give me thoughts.

Thanks! The regular season was not kind to me, but maybe my luck is improving in the postseason. I'm kind of the polar opposite of the Vikings themselves...

As for the Superbowl, I've never done Pick 4 before so I'm open to whatever works.
