I must be close to last. Everything went polar opposite of what I expected.

Sometimes, people are just a bottomless mystery. And, after all, this is just a sh*tty little forum in the sun-less backwaters of the online world.

I show Tommy711 winning, with 223.61 points.
Nathan is second with 123.08 points.

Tommy is closest with a guess of 38 total points scored and 2 touchdowns scored, which nets him 200 points right there.

Give me a few minutes to double-check everything.



Thanks Ed. I can guarantee the forum that the $10 I won from Mike WAS NOT WORTH IT! I think I also beat him heads up. So that should be another $20. Assuming I added right and Michel is 13 points!

Thanks for putting this on Wizard!

If it wasn’t for this contest, I wouldn’ have enjoyed the game.

Congratulations to the winner!

Here's how I made it. It seemed the best strategy was to go for outlying events; we didn't see that low total points and total touchdowns were correlated so a reasonable strategy to adopt. Congratulations and thanks for a fun event.

Charlie... I get a different number of total points than you do. I show Tommy711 with 223.61, Nathan with 123.08, etc. Can you figure out where our discrepancy is? I've uploaded my spreadsheet.

My only strategy was to pick the opposite of what I think people would pick. I needed to be even more opposite and I could have won.

Where I messed up badly was that damned 125 points accumulated.
In perhaps the lowest scoring SB of all time. Had I said 16 points, people would have been LAUGHING, and be like,"Wow, what a bad bet Nathan made," but be ASTOUNDED as that's what it ended up being.

I've corrected my figures as I changed it from when 10-3 to 13-3 and forgot 16 wasn't prime. So I agree.

Damn close call with Nathan. Good job finishing 5th!

Great job finishing 2nd Nathan!

And congrats for winning Tommy711!

Given my picks, i'm surprised I finished in the top half. Lol

Hey, I tied with unjon, boz, CharliePatrick, TomG, and chuckleberry for the most Props won, with 12.

Of course, it's not about the number of Props won, as Nathan demonstrated. Nathan won just six Props, yet finished in 2nd Place.
