Packer "Six-Pack" Pick'em Challenge: Week Eight

Postby APB » Wed Oct 28, 2015 12:53 am

Either the forum is getting good at this little exercise or I'm selecting match-ups that are just too damn easy. Six players managed to nail five of their six picks this week and another five players hit on four picks. That's a lot of good picks!

Suffice to say there wasn't a whole lot of ground made up on the leaders this week, although Papa John was able to once again wrestle overall first place away from backthepack4ever.

And then there's last weeks perfect score picker, Pack Power. Let's just say he came back down to Earth... :wink:

Rules and general outline of the game from the original thread:
I'll post four weekly games that have intriguing match-ups for you to ponder and choose a winner - those will serve as the "four." Next, we'll use the Packer game match-up as a weekly pick to kinda help you guys and gals out as a "gimme" game. Judging from last year, several of you could use the help! Lastly, we'll once again ask you to provide us with your "upset special" of the week. This can be any team you like to include teams previously selected in the "four" or Packer game match-up, just as long as your pick is a game day "underdog" as listed by the provided Vegas betting line website. Keep in mind, though, if you choose to double-down on one of the previously selected games of the week, you'll pay double the price for guessing wrong!

To keep things interesting, this year I will keep a running tally of participant weekly scores. The cumulative scores will be updated each week and posted for you gloat over your genius - or hide in shame from your lack thereof. We'll run the competition through week 17 but only count your top 14 weekly scores (worst three weeks eliminated) thus allowing for participants who accidentally miss a week or two to continue with the contest. The winner will be determined by best overall standing with a tie-breaker going to best overall "upset special" record.

Now, you may be asking yourself - what's the incentive to participate? Well, how about a sweatshirt/hoodie of your choice from the Packer Pro Shop to the winner? Tell me the prospect of that ain't worth two minutes of your time each week!

Edit: I noticed the ProShop has added new items to the website, and with new items come ridiculously high prices. With that, I'm sorry to say I must cap the product cost of the winning prize at $99.99.

Yes, it's true...none of you are worth $100 bucks.
:wink:


And now, let's get to the picks!

This weeks picks:

The four...
Minnesota @ Chicago
Cincinnati @ Pittsburgh
San Diego @ Baltimore
NY Giants @ New Orleans

The one...
Green Bay @ Denver

And... last but not least, give us your personal upset special.

To help with your Upset Special, here is a look at this week's schedule through the eyes of Vegas NFL Lines Link.

Scores after week two are posted below.

No, every post is not secretly about wanting Capers fired.

Detroit is an underdog at KC? Just how does that work?

The Packers lunatic fringe is more visible because of sheer numbers. The Packers have one of the largest fan bases in all of sports. If the fringe percentage is the same as with other teams, then we end up with larger volumes of nut jobs. - JustJeff
