    I hope I assumed correctly when I think 1 is more of a confident pick than 16.

    The more confident you are in a team to win, you should lay down 16 confidence points on that game.

    I believe so.

    I've been in so many of these over the years with and without, it's hard to keep track.

    Chris,

    Yeah...we did confidence points last year. I like it that way...tried to get some friends to put up some diet cokes...but no takers.

    gwallaia - As far as how to play...No spread involved...just pick the team to win...if you aren't too confident, lay a low confidence value on that game. If you are reallly confident on the game, lay a high confidence value on the game. You can only use a specific confidence value 1 time per week, in other words, you rank all the games 1 through 16 based on how confident you are on each game. Your score is based on the number of games you win. For each game you win, you get that number of confidence points.

    The overall winner is the one who has the most points for the entire season. You can change your picks up to 5 minutes prior to the game beginning. Make sense?
