    I also think we might cover the spread...but that's not what you have to concern yourself with in this Pick'em. The Rams have to win, but if they do you get bucket loads of points...well...sorta...if this game counted. ;)

    Redskins

    Check out Jim Bob Cooter on the road vs the Giants Fellas...we need some expert scouts on this dude...An expert scout to me is, a fan that watches every single play, re-winds when necessary, and knows at least 10 players on the team he's watching.

    The 14 games on Saturday and Sunday produced a maximum total of 205 points. At 16.25 per game the expected maximum would have been 227.5. Low scores mean predictable results with few upsets. Generally people score well in those circumstances. This was true again here with the lowest score of 91, (44.4%). The highest score before Monday's game is 154, so congratulations to @BriansRams. The leader in the Weekly Prize for paid entrances is a few points behind. That prize is still very much up for grabs with 7 players within 23 points of the leader's total. Good luck to all.

    Week 15 rivalled Weeks 13 and 12 as a free-scoring points-fest...at least until the Panthers put a crimp in the style of 14 out of 16 competitors. That dropped the group from 61.3% to 56.3% on the week. 1 person who did pick the Panthers was Tron and that pick propelled him from a tie for 2nd in the Weekly Prize standings to the top spot with 167 points. It seemed fitting after several near misses and 2nd place finishes. 4 weeks ago Tron was languishing behind @flv with less than 50% of points won and he was 193 points behind the leader. That deficit is now 100 points and with 31 picks remaining he still has an outside chance at taking the overall title. Congratulations to you. In the overall competition Florida_Ram had a decent week and whilst 11th out of 16 might not look good at 1st sight it was still better than the 2nd and 3rd place competitors. That means an increase in the overall lead although there are some very fast finishers moving up on the rails. Commiserations to @BriansRams who had the highest score of 154 on Sunday but was let down by the Redskins on Monday. He regains the lead in the alternative leaderboard for points won from points contested. Commiserations also to @LumberTubs who narrowly missed out on a 3rd Weekly Prize with the Redskins.

    Road teams bounced back with a vengeance this week. Home field advantage isn't worth 3 points if the home team isn't in playoff contention and the crowd is quiet.

    Congratulations to Week 15 Prize winner @Tron. Your prize will be available in the Sportsbook shortly. Congratulations to @Florida_Ram. Our leader takes a healthy 49.5 points advantage into the last 2 weeks. 2 more solid scores should be enough but with 100+ points swings possible you can never tell. All of the Week 15 picks are in the .zip file for anyone interested. I'll be back later with the Week 16 handicaps and points scoring options.

    Week 16 ESPN handicaps:
    Giants @ Eagles 2.5
    Falcons @ Panthers 2.5
    Dolphins @ Bills -3.5
    Redskins @ Bears 2.5
    Chargers @ Browns 6.5
    Vikings @ Packers -6.5
    Titans @ Jaguars 4.5
    Jets @ Patriots -16.5
    Colts @ Raiders -3.5
    49ers @ Rams -3.5
    Buccaneers @ Saints -2.5
    Cardinals @ Seahawks -8.5
    Bengals @ Texans -2.5
    Ravens @ Steelers -5.5
    Broncos @ Chiefs -4.5
    Lions @ Cowboys -7.5

    Your points value choices:
    Giants 16 or Eagles 21
    Falcons 16 or Panthers 21
    Dolphins 22 or Bills 15
    Redskins 16 or Bears 21
    Chargers 12 or Browns 25
    Vikings 25 or Packers 12
    Titans 14 or Jaguars 23
    Jets 33 or Patriots 4
    Colts 22 or Raiders 15
    49ers 22 or Rams 15
    Buccaneers 21 or Saints 16
    Cardinals 27 or Seahawks 10
    Bengals 21 or Texans 16
    Ravens 24 or Steelers 13
    Broncos 23 or Chiefs 14
    Lions 26 or Cowboys 11

    All the games other than the Thursday game will count so please get your picks in before the Saturday morning kickoffs. Based purely on handicap the Patriots would only be worth 2 points. There would be no point including it at that score as it would clearly be value to take the Jets at odds of 35/2. This is why there is a caveat in the rules saying all picks will be worth a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 33 points. At odds of 33/4 the Jets probably won't be good value, but it's up to each individual player to choose who they pick. It will at least post a quandary for the leader. Does he risk letting players gain 33 points on him if he takes the Patriots or does he give up the 4 points and play safe with the Jets? :sneaky:
    Good luck to all and Merry Christmas. (y)

    Apologies for being a few hours late. I'm on odd hours this week.

    Tagging @cvramsfan, @Dagonet, @DaveFan'51, @Dodgersrf, @dolphinlover123, @Florida_Ram, @LACHAMP46, @LumberTubs, @OldSchool, @Ramrocket, @RhodyRams, @Riverumbbq, @TK42-RAM, @Tron, & @BriansRams

    No worries. I know what it's like for people this time of year. You are welcome to change some/all of your picks before kickoff.

    I picked [​IMG] @cvramsfan.. I wasn't surprised by the Eagles winning but if you made me bet my paycheck I had to pick NYG. Division rivals as you know are the games that will always bite us in the ass.

    There are still 3 games to go in Week 16. The 13 points-scoring games on Saturday yielded a maximum potential score of 214 points. It was generally a tough day. 8 players broke the 100 points barrier...and 9 players didn't. It was RhodyRams' day until the last 5 seconds of the last game. He started the day in 7th place - 111.5 points off the lead. Had the Bengals kicker made that final kick he would have been in 2nd place - 29.5 points off the lead. It wasn't to be, but his 146 points on the day was still the high score. Congratulations to Florida_Ram who starts Christmas day still 50 points in the lead.
