For those of you who do NFL confidence pick ’em pools, I’m going to list these weekly here. I prefer the confidence pool over the straight pick ’em. I would love to get into an ATS pool, but don’t have any of those available locally.
Here are the safe pick rankings. Safe wins smaller pools.
|at New Orleans||13|
|at LA Chargers||11|
|at New England||9|
|at NY Jets||5|
|at Tampa Bay||1|
If you need to differentiate (think larger pool of players), the spot I like the most in this format is Buffalo over the New York Jets. The Jets have a ton of turnover this year on their staff. The bottom two games are basically pick ’ems and picks will be split.
I’m also probably fading Chicago a fair amount this year, and Green Bay is tempting, but I’m just shy of pulling that trigger.
