NFL Confidence Pool Picks Explained
The NFL is by far the most popular sport in America, not only amongst common fans, but also amongst sports bettors. And with this popularity has come a whole collection of new ways for fans to take part in the season with various pick ’em leagues and the new latest craze, NFL Confidence Pools.
In an NFL Confidence Pool, everyone picks the winner of each individual game, just like they would in a pick ’em league. However, where the distinguishing difference is that you also rank the games from 1-16, because there’s 16 games each week, based on how certain you are of the outcome. So for the game that you’re most confident will win, you’ll want to wager 16 points on it, and for the play you’re least sure of you’ll only want to wager 1 point. And all the other plays will fall somewhere in between, one number per play. You cannot wager 16 points on multiple plays, or 1 point on multiple plays, etc. So at the end of the week, you add up your point total, and whoever has the most points wins for that week. Some leagues have week to week prizes, while others only give out prizes for the winner at the end of the year.
Next time you’re getting your office pool together and thinking about going with a traditional pick ’em league, think again… NFL Confidence Pools are everything pick ’em leagues are, but with more nuances that spice things up and add an extra level of strategy to your NFL office pics pool.
