CGAUTOMALL WINS SUPER BOWL

CGAUTOMALL wins MSP NFL’s 26th Super Bowl with the Bengals cover of the 4.5 point spread (Rams 23 Bengals 20 Final).   He wins $200 (in addition to the $200 each Super Bowl participant won for making the Super Bowl) along with free entry to MSP NFL 2022.  Congratulations to both CGAUTOMALL and DMACII.

Thank you again for another great season and I promise we will not have the problems we had this year with the software.   I hope to have you all back next season.

Congrats to Matthew Stafford who showed he can win the big one.

SUPER BOWL SUNDAY

Today’s match up features #2 CGAUTOMALL and #4 DMACII.  Both players have identical picks which will make the results based on the higher seed’s POW.

#2 CGAUTOMALL will win if the Bengals cover the 4.5 point spread.  #4 DMACII wins with a Rams victory of 5 points or more.

Here are the picks:

#2 CGAUTOMALL: CIN +4.5- POW, OVER 48.5

#4 DMACII: CIN +4.5- POW, OVER 48.5

Both players have already secured a $200 payout.  Today’s winner will win an additional $200 and free entry to MSP NFL 2022.

 

CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIPS

After yet another great Sunday of Playoff football, the Super Bowl is set as is the MSP NFL Super Bowl.   #2 CGAUTOMALL will face #4 DMACII in the Super Bowl.

Here are the results from the Conference Championship Round:

#2 CGAUTOMALL  (CIN-POW, LAR) at +1 defeats #21 Starrs (KC, LAR-POW) at -3.

#4 DMACII (CIN, LAR-POW) at -1 eliminates #12 Red Redderson (KC, LAR-POW) at -3.

Each winner today has won $200 and will be playing for another $200 in the Super Bowl.

The rules slightly change for the Super Bowl.  The total points will be used to choose the OVER/UNDER the total.  If both players have identical picks (side and OVER/UNDER), it is based on the higher seed’s POW (which by default is the side).  I will have the lines set later this week to make sure there is no major movement of the lines.  I will contact each participant individually.

And I want to end this post with a well-deserved congratulations to Matthew Stafford.

DIVISIONAL PLAYOFFS FINAL

Here are the final results from the Divisional Playoff Round:

#1 Jamez1156  (-1) vs. #21 Starrs (+1) – Starrs advances to face #2 CGAutomall

#2 CGAutomall (-1) vs. #11 War Pigs (-1) – CGAutomall advances as the higher seed wins the tiebreaker and will face #21 Starrs next week.

#3 Chancestradamus (-3) vs. #12 Red Redderson (-1) – Red Redderson advances to face #4 DMACII.

#4 DMACII (-3) vs. #5 World Tour 2021 (-3) –  This is a tough one when the low score of the week (-3) gets you into the Conference Championship Round by the higher seed tiebreaker, but #4 DMACII did just that and will face #12 Red Redderson.

4 ADVANCE TO DIVISIONAL ROUND

With the Rams cover, the following players have advanced to the Divisional Playoff Round and will participate in 1-on-1 match ups based on how they ended the regular season.

World Tour 2021 and Starrs went a perfect 6-0 to end with +7.  Red Redderson and War Pigs ended the week at +5 and round out the field for the Divisional Playoffs.

From this point on, the final standings come into play with respect to match ups and potential tiebreakers.

Here are the match ups for the Divisional Playoff Round:

#1 Jamez1156 vs. #21 Starrs

#2 CGAUTOMALL vs. #11 War Pigs

#3 Chancestradamus vs #12 Red Redderson

#4 Dmacii vs. #5 World Tour 2021

WILD CARD WEEKEND

The lines and pick sheet are set for Wild Card Weekend.  This weekend’s competition will involve seeds #5 through #21 and will work like a regular week works, except there are 6 games.   The mandatory game is the Cardinals / Rams on Monday Night.  You must pick at least 4 (1 of which must be MNF) and you need to have a POW.  The software forces you to pick a MNF total but THAT HAS NO BEARING ON TIES.  The top 4 seeds advance.  If there are any ties to get into the next round, the following tiebreakers are in place:  #1 POW Won or Lost,  #2 MNF Won or Lost and #3 Regular Season seeding.  If there is a tie and #1 and #2 don’t break the tie, the higher seed advances.   Top 4 finishers advance to the Divisional Playoff Round.

ALL PICKS ARE DUE BY KICKOFF ON SATURDAY OR YOU WILL BE ELIMINATED. (4:30 PM Raiders at Bengals)

All players may make picks but the only players who MUST pick and will be considered for advancing to the next round are:  World Tour 2021, JamieGSteelers, Will I Am, Micktastic, Crease King, Double Deuce, War Pigs, Red Redderson, Real Deal, Zoom, Belly Jelli, Air Jordan, The Pickers, Pooooozar, Mojo Toes, Dilly Dilly and Starrs.  Good luck to these players!

WEEK 18: JAMEZ1156 WINS TITLE; RONDONE WINS 2ND WEEKLY PRIZE

In Week 18, Rondone pulls off the week with the wild Raiders win finishing the week at +7 and giving him his 2nd week win of the season.  He edged out  Mad Max and Jamez1156 who were also at +7 but lost the Sunday Night game.

With his big Week 18, Jamez1156 pulled away from the pack, winning the season title in his first season in MSP NFL finishing the year with an amazing +45.   His final score is among the top scores ever achieved in the 26 seasons of this competition.  2nd place is CGAutomall who finishes with +36 which is usually good enough to win in most years.  3rd place is Chancestradamus at +32 and DMACII +30 finishes in 4th edging out World Tour 2021 by way of the POW record tiebreaker.   ALL 4 of these players have a BYE for the Wild Card Round competition that will take place next week.

The next 4 positions who will get prizes of $50 apiece are:  World Tour 2021 at +30, JamieGSteelerz at +28, Will I Am at +21 and Micktastic also at +21, only trailing Will I Am by the POW tiebreaker.

The playoffs start next week with the top 4 getting BYES and anyone with a top 20 score or better will participate in a one week competition with the top 4 scorers advancing to play individual match ups in the Divisional Round against the top 4 finishers.  Ties in the Wild Card Round will be determined the normal way (POW, MNF) and the 3rd tiebreaker is the regular season standing.   This year the top 20 cutoff score is +7 and the following players will also participate next week: Crease King (+20), Double Deuce (+20), War Pigs (+17), Red Redderson (+17), Real Deal (+17), Zoom (+16), Belly Jelli (+15), Air Jordan (+14), The Pickers (+11), Pooooozar (+10), Mojo Toes (+8), Dilly Dilly (+7) and Starrs (+7)

The pick sheet will be available before Wednesday.  Anyone can participate but only those mentioned above will be counted for the week.  There is no weekly prize in the playoffs, just a prize for the Super Bowl Champion and Super Bowl Runner Up.

IMPORTANT: OFFICIAL STANDINGS

IMPORTANT – As we enter Week 18, I want to reiterate the standing on the site are messed up due to the Week 15/Week 19 issue. I am trying to manipulate Week 15, to make the standings correct but changing one thing messes up something else. I have a download of everyone’s picks for each week in the spreadsheet below and you can go week by week to see your scores on a weekly basis.
