• FootballPros.com 2015 Upset Special Week #15


    We had nine winners last week. Taking the Saints was beneficial to Afrocomb, jhinkamp and Matt. Picking the Redskins was good for a win and three points for xmenehune. Amy continues to keep the field at bay with her Raiders pick and the Steelers helped mikesteenation1, Brian, iwatt and myself put another notch in the old belt.

    Week fifteen should be a good week for some of us to continue to get well. Maybe X and Amy will stop winning for a couple weeks and let a couple folks make this here contest interesting.

    Off we go.

    STANDINGS


    Rules:
    • One pick per week
    • Your chosen team must be at least a (+3) underdog (Only games listed in this column are eligible)
    • Your chosen team must win the game outright (no 'pushes' or 'covers')
    • Season winner is the one with the most upsets correctly chosen between Week #1 through the Conference Championship Games (20 weeks all together)
    • There will be a points system to determine a winner in the event of a tie
    • Points will be accumulated by adding the game spreads for your correct picks (if you take Carolina (+4.5) and Carolina wins, you will be awarded a win and 4.5 points). Be careful making picks based on the number of points possible. Points only count if you are tied for the total wins lead when the whole contest is finished.
    • The No Upsets Option: Predict correctly that 'No Upsets' will occur in any given week and you will be awarded one win and a point total equal to the sum of all the spreads in that week's Upset Special. If you wish to exercise the 'No Upsets' Option, that prediction is due by 5 minutes prior to kickoff of the first game of the week in question. This includes Thursday Night Football or Saturday games. The 'No Upsets' option is confined to the Upset Possibilities listed in this article.
    • Picks are due no later than 5 minutes before the scheduled start of the broadcast time for your game. The FootballPros.com time stamp on your post is gospel.
    • Spread lines, once posted, will remain static throughout the week. This isn't The Sports Book at Caesar's Palace, after all.
    Let's. Get it. ON!!

    Biggie's Week #15 Upset Special: I really want to take my Lions here. Typical pattern: heartbeaking loss leads to some serious egg-laying leads to a big bounceback week. The problem? I would not be surprised to lean detroit had never won a game in New Orleans. Meh. Screw it. Gimme the Lions (+3)

      I'll take the Falcons. One last good Matt Ryan performance against a secondary that is holding the team back.

      I'm making a bet that the Jets are looking ahead to next week and writing off this weeks game as already won. So, I'll take Dallas
