Championship Week Predictor

In an attempt to completely humiliate ourselves, we present the Championship Week Predictor using our Power Rankings.

So that Henry doesn’t rebuke me when he uses the Predictions in his comparative contests, we will use 2.5 points as the home field advantage. Why? Why not we say! (Obviously not applied for “neutral field” games).

And, to further clarify, we are going to show how our picks compare to what Vegas thinks. No guesswork here kiddies – the info is all out there for your consumption in the simplest format available.

Of course if you wager the mortgage money on this and lose, you have only yourself to blame. If you happen to win, I will provide an address at the proper time for the customary percentage of your proceeds.

So away we go!

Interesting that the Predictor seems to like all the Dogs (though some more narrowly than others). We will be back next week to accept our share of shame or adoration.
