2015 BTB Playoff Pick 'Em Results: Mopping Up The Divisional Round

New, comments

We review the results of our Pick 'Em contest from the Divisional Round and wonder whether we care at all about the Conference Championships.

I find that I quickly lose interest in the playoffs when the Cowboys are eliminated or, as has been the case more often than not, the Cowboys didn't make the playoffs in the first place. But, as we've learned this season, it's important to finish the fight and power through adversity, which is why were going to continue with our BTB Playoff Pick 'Em Contest as if nothing has changed.

But before we get to the picks for the Conference Championship games this weekend, let's take a quick look at how our contestants have fared over the last two weeks. Our Pick 'Em contest asked you to pick the straight up winners for the four games on each of the last two weekends. And to spice things up, we used a Confidence Points scoring system where you had to give each game you picked a specific point value based on how strongly you felt about the accuracy of your selection.

If you had correctly picked every single one of the eight winners so far, you'd have gotten 80 points, which the exact points total BTB-member Realist Larry has amassed by correctly picking the four winners of the Wild Card Round and the four winners of the Divisional round.

A few other participants came close, but nobody outside of Realist Larry is batting 1.000 in the playoffs. Here's a short summary of the Top 10 participants in our Pick 'Em contest, you'll find the full results of all participants at the end of this post.

Conference Championship Picks

Our Confidence Points system gets a lot simpler this week with just two games being played. This week, you will assign 8 points to one game, and 16 points to the other.

Do Not: assign 16 points to both games

Do Not: assign 8 points to both games

Click on the link below and you'll be taken directly to the Playoff Pick 'em entry form where you can select the teams you like for the win and assign your Confidence Points.

The link above should auto-fill your BTB user name into the entry form (in most cases). In some cases, the link hasn't worked properly, so here's an alternative link that works without the auto-fill - just remember to spell your username correctly.

Alternative Playoff Pick 'Em Entry Form

If you prefer not to use your BTB user name, or are not a BTB member, go ahead and enter a name of your choosing, but try to stick with that name throughout the playoffs.
