Let me know if you feel I've short-changed you or if I totally blew a calculation.
I will wait for any updates before pinning this to the sticky thread above.
I used the magic 53% as the cutoff.
These standings are based only on the BettorsWorld Game of the Week Contest.

I'd like to run a Super Bowl squares contest for a party I'll be attending and wondering if anyone knows a good reputable site online where people can pay ahead of time. Maybe we could do one here too?
2-2 last week hitting on Pittsburgh winning SU and with NE -16. I knew that DAL/GB would be a tough one but went with the rested home team. GB is just too hot
GB +4 - These guys are so hot right now and have now won 8 straight. Randall Cobb is back and healthy it appears and Rogers...
Tonight I am betting LOUISVILLE -5.5 at home vs Clemson
Dont see Clemson making this much of a game
Purdue -12.5 vs Illinois. Over/Under is 144 points.
Purdue is coming off a road loss to Iowa 83-78 a team they dismantled December 28 89-67.
Playing at home stinging from a Loss Purdue will be fired up. The Illini are also in a must win situation.
It pains me to say that Illinois has NO...
THRU DIVISIONAL GAMES
Love TCU over Iowa state today.
I was wrong on isu against okie state but this sets up well for a very improved, experienced TCU team.
Iowa state is playing their second road game this week AND has Kansas at home for big Monday so a huge look ahead for them too.
Line is TCU -1.5 now....
THRU WILD CARD GAMES

contests so we'll just wait until that happens. Congrats to the winners!
1st place wins $175
2nd place wins $75
Joliet Jake 30 - $175
hamburger 29 - $75
Indiana -10 over Illinois....I think winless in the big 10 and losers of their last 3, Indy beats the snot out of Illinois today. Indy by 16. I played this last night but line is now 11 and still playable there I think.
WILD CARD: 1-3
My system has been leaning dogs most of the year, and again last week got killed.
Made an adjustment, in hopes to balance it out in the recipe.
Here we go again.
ATLANTA -4.5: System loves the Falcons to win big (-10.5). Seahawks traveling +2,000 miles and Falcons off a...
The Championship Game will be awarded 3 pts for a win and 1.5 pts for a push
The tie-breakers will be the total pts scored by both teams in the Championship Game, with the 2nd tie-breaker being total net
yards scored by both teams. I'll take the total net yards from the ESPN box score the...
I haven't attempted to make predictions for the past 2 years on here but here goes.
Seattle +4.5 - Seattle has already beaten this team once. Atlanta did make the game interesting but not until the 3rd Q when Seattle came out of HT with a 17-3 lead.
Maybe they got a little complacent having...
We are hitting a miserable 42.6% as a group over our last six games. Are we that bad? If SC loses this afternoon, that number drops to around 40. I think SC wins and I will take the sides that we are heavy on the rest of the day Arkansas 15-11 and Okie st 14-12. I keep this every year...
The championship counts as 3 pts so everyone above the line has a shot I guess.
We're just paying 1st and 2nd.

I will start off stating one of my worst years in the last 13. Made a modification that swung too much towards the dogs.
Corrected half-way through season. Hoping to see better results come playoffs and next year.
OAK +4 (I would leave this one off, with QB issues on both sides. My...

Bama25 and Bobomax tie for 2nd place with 47 points. One will end up in 2nd place and one will end up in 3rd place depending on tiebreakers.

What game did Bama struggle in this year? Ole Miss...and they would have got beat if Ole Miss had their defense from last year. But the biggest reason was Chad Kelly. Washington has a shot here period because of the accuracy of their qb. I think it comes down to the wire. Again, I stink this year...
