We have a new feature attached to breaks, CSB Confidence Pools! Starting with week 9 of the NFL season, if you buy a spot in any break for the week you’ll get 1 entry into the weekly pool!
There will be a max of 1 entry per person for the weekly pool, no matter how many spots you purchase!
A confidence pool is where you make your predictions of each of the winners on a slate of games on a specific date or week and attach a number value to each pick representing your “confidence” in that pick.
For instance, if you are most sure the out of all 16 games on a slate, that the Patriots are going to beat the Dolphins, you’d assign that as your “16 point” pick. If the Patriots win you get 16 points. If you are least sure that the Titans will beat the Jets, that’s your “1 point” pick.
The website will look at everyone’s entries and automatically calculate what team won each game, and the number of points you got for each win. The winner of the pool is the person with the most total points! 1st tie-breaker is total winners guessed correctly and 2nd tie-breaker is total points scored by all teams in that slate!
Scores are now automatically updated every 15 minutes!
Below are some helpful hints and things to keep in mind!
- The Confidence Pool picks area is in your “My Account” – “Confidence Pools”. From there you’ll be able to make picks and see your entries!
- The total points scored by all teams on the slate is key for the 2nd tie-breaker, it’s important to get close on that guess!
- Once you submit an entry you can edit it up to the deadline!
- There will be a deadline for entries for each pool. Right before the first game of the day starts. If you don’t make an entry by then, you won’t be in the contest, so don’t miss it!
