Pick 256 is a season-long contest in which BTB members and readers get to pick the straight-up winners for all games each week. Last week, in the inaugural week of the contest, the consensus pick correctly predicted 11 out of sixteen games, which is not a bad result.
Can the consensus improve on that mark this week? Here are the favorites for Week 2 according to the Pick 256 participants:
|Week 2 Picks, 463 participants
|TB @ NO (-7)||Saints||98%|
|STL (-2.5) @ WAS||Rams||98%|
|BAL (-4) @ OAK||Ravens||97%|
|MIA (-6) @ JAC||Dolphins||97%|
|ARI (-3) @ CHI||Cardinals||89%|
|DAL @ PHI (-4)||Cowboys||88%|
|SEA @ GB (-3)||Packers||88%|
|TEN @ CLE (-4)||Titans||86%|
|SF @ PIT (-7)||Steelers||83%|
|NYJ @ IND (-9.5)||Colts||79%|
|ATL @ NYG (-2.5)||Falcons||76%|
|DEN @ KC (-2.5)||Chiefs||75%|
|HOU @ CAR (-2)||Panthers||68%|
|DET @ MIN (-2.5)||Lions||64%|
|SD @ CIN (-3.5)||Bengals||61%|
|NE (-2.5) @ BUF||Bills||58%|
It is worth pointing out that while the picks in the table above represent the consensus picks of the 463 participants, only 14 people actually picked those exact 16 teams to win. Which means that 449 participants disagree with at least one of the consensus picks.
Which pick do you most strongly disagree with?
Here's a link to the Excel file with all the picks for Week 2, for those who are interested in tracking the results themselves.
Once you open the file, you'll see a blue title bar into which you can enter the winning teams to see where you end up among all participants. The title bar is currently populated with the winner of the Thursday game, as well as the consensus picks for the remaining games. If you want to see how you fared during or after the weekend games, simply input your own picks into the title bar and see how many correct picks you have.
In any case, have fun with the file and good luck with your picks.
