Pooooozar wins the 24th MSP NFL Super Bowl by a narrow margin as the total was under 53.5. Congrats to Pooooozar!
The Super Bowl matchup is set, the picks are in, it’s time to start making the wings and nachos.
#2 Pooooozar- KC -1.5 POW, Under 53.5
#8 Steelerhawk- KC -1.5 POW, Over 53.5
Pooooozar wins with a total score under 53.5, Steelerhawk wins with the over.
Players must make one pick but can make both picks and must designate a POW. If both players make the exact same picks, the winner will be determined by the higher seed’s (Pooooozar’s) POW.
Picks are due by kickoff on Super Bowl Sunday. Good luck!
Championship Sunday didn’t lead to any upsets on the field, but we did have one in MSP NFL. In the early game, #2 Pooooozar ended with +1 and advanced to the Super Bowl with Kansas City’s cover over #4 Air India who finished at -1.
In the other match up, #1 Blaze (at -3) fell to #8 Steelerhawk who finishes at -1 advances on the strength of San Francisco’s win over Green Bay.
The competition changes slightly for the Super Bowl. In order to make it a true competition, the Over/Under is added. The lines for the Super Bowl is San Francisco +1.5 vs. Kansas City and the Over/Under is 53.5. I have the normal pick sheet ready to go. Unfortunately, it doesn’t allow for the Over/Under but it does have the ability to have the total points. I will be adding a new post with a pick form for the Super Bowl. Players only have to pick one thing, the team or the Over/Under or they can choose both. If players have identical picks, the outcome will be based on the result of the higher seed’s (Pooooozar’s) POW. Good luck to both players.
The picks for today are in.
1 Blaze wins with a Green Bay cover (picked TEN, GB-POW)
8 Steelerhawk wins with a San Fran cover (picked TEN-POW, SF)
In the other matchup:
2 Pooooozar wins with a KC cover (picked KC-POW, GB)
4 Air India wins with a Tennessee cover (picked TEN-POW, SF)
Saturday, #1 Blaze and #2 Pooooozar advanced to the Conference Championship Round. The Packers victory and cover gave #4 Air India at +1 eliminated #5 Kliner at -1. In the other matchup, both #3 Papa Jose and #8 Steelerhawk finished with +1. Steelerhawk wins based on the POW tiebreaker, winning his with the Packers while Papa Jose lost his with the Seahawks.
Next Sunday’s matchups are:
#1 Blaze vs. #8 Steelerhawk
#2 Pooooozar vs. #4 Air India
The lines for the Conference Championship Round will be available momentarily.
We have two players clinch victories and advance to the Conference Championship Round. #1 Blaze at 0 eliminates #16 Pazzi at -3. #2 Pooooozar will advance over #11 Gold Chiefs. Both players are at 0 and because they had differing picks today and exact same picks tomorrow, they will end up tied and the higher seed will advance. #3 Papa Jose at +2 and #8 Steelerhawk at 0 will have their result determined by the Seattle/Green Bay game. #4 Air India and #5 Kliner are at 0 and will also have their result determined by the Seattle/Green Bay game. If Seattle covers, Papa Jose and Kliner advance. If Green Bay covers the Steelerhawk and Air India advance.
I will be tracking this week manually, so here are the match ups and their picks:
#1 Blaze – SF, BAL, KC, SEA-POW
#16 Pazzi – MIN, BAL-POW, KC, SEA
#2 Pooooozar – SF, BAL, KC, GB-POW
#11 Gold Chiefs – MIN, TEN, KC, GB-POW
#3 Papa Jose – SF, TEN, KC, SEA-POW
#8 Steelerhawk – SF, BAL, HOU, GB-POW
#4 Air India – MIN, TEN, HOU, GB-POW
#5 Kliner – SF, BAL, HOU-POW, SEA
It was a wild Wild Card Weekend and when the dust settled, we have our field for next weekend’s Divisional Playoffs. The following players are advancing: Steelerhawk (at a perfect +5), Gold Chiefs(+3), Pazzi (+2) and Kliner (+1). Kliner was tied with several others at +1, but Kliner with a POW win and is the highest seed in competition this weekend and thus wins the last spot.
Next weekend’s match-ups are:
#1 Blaze vs #16 Pazzi
#2 Pooooozar vs #11 Gold Chiefs
#3 Papa Jose vs #8 Steelerhawk
#4 Air India vs #5 Kliner
Week 17 goes to Zoom with a +7. Crazy Canuck, also at +7, lost his POW thus the first tiebreaker.
Blaze wins the season title with a +28. 2nd place is Poooozar at +26. Papa Jose takes 3rd at +26 (losing the POW tiebreaker by 1). 4th is Air India at +25. All of the top 4 places have a bye week next week and will play individual match-ups during the divisional playoff round against the top 4 players from Wild Card Weekend.
The last 4 money positions are Kliner at +22, Belly Jelli at + 20. Longshot at +18 had the best POW record of the 3 +18 players and thus takes 7th. Steelerhawk at +18 edges Real Deal also a +18 based on the better MNF record as they had identical POW wins.
The 20th place score (+9) is the cut line for next week’s Wild Card Weekend competition. The following players will make their picks for next weekend’s games. The top 4 scores advance (tie goes by POW then higher seed) to face the top 4 finishers in the Divisional Playoff Round:
Kliner, Belly Jelli, Longshot, Steelerhawk, Real Deal, Starrs, Gold Chiefs, Double Deuce, Miss Texas, I am Savage, Gosh Darnold, Pazzi, TimGoBlue, Dilly Dilly, Hiwayman, Mailman.
Congrats to all post season participants.
