    Final Round!
    #1 - Denver Blood

    The picking structure for the Super Bowl is slightly different then those in it. Here is how that will work. Those 2 teams in the 4th round will pick in this format:

    CAR vs DEN

    Spread - Carolina @ -5.5(Via theScore.com)

      A couple quick questions regarding format.

      Its no secret for better or worse I won't pick against Denver. So obviously I will be picking Denver. So if I am picking Den su then I am obviously picking them to cover the spread. So would I be picking over-1 or under-1. Not quite understanding the terminology as it relates to a spread.

      Also if we pick different teams then one of us will pick wrong. Will it still come down to the points where the loser can still win or is it over then? I personally think it should be over then, but nonetheless I just want to understand how this works.

      Finally, are the above #s set as they are right now, or can they change as they might on the betting sights as we get closer?

        The #s are set. I'm not going to change them throughout the week. Just makes it easier. It is still possible for the loser of the game to win. That's what the prop bets are for. Makes it all the more challenging! Also, if Denver wins the spread would be under. I have to change to # to 5.5 not 1. It would be over if Carolina wins by more the 5.5.

                You have been the most consistent player all year and if anyone deserves this you do man. I am certainly hoping to beat you out of it, but you have played great and been the best player all year. Good Luck DB

                    Thanks man you've done pretty well yourself. I know I found myself checking your picks a couple of weeks to see if you would catch me or not.

                    Also I just made this extremely simple and made all the prop picks pointless.

                    Plain and simply this comes down to the coin toss. We'll know the winner before the game is even played. I know I know boring right?

                    I stayed with all of your picks except both of the coin toss prop bets. But this can still go 1 of three ways. You win by 2, I win by 2, or the dreaded final option that Taz may not even have been aware could happen. WE COULD TIE!

                    On Prop Bet number 2 you picked heads and I picked Tails. But then on Prop Bet #19 you picked Denver to win the toss and I picked Carolina.

                    Simply enough this seasons pick em comes down to the opening coin toss.

                    So Taz if we tie what happens?

                      Well that's an interesting way to settle it, the whole year comes down to one flip of the coin. Lets atleast hope the officials don't play into this one . I did think about the fact we could tie when I first looked at this final weeks rules. That would be interesting and although I want to win, I feel like at this point it will be a hard way to lose for either of us when its basically down to guessing on coin tosses. So I won't say I'd be too awful disappointed with that. Its been fun anyway it turns out.

                        Yeah I thought it was odd when I realized I could make a pick em come down to a coin toss and not even matter about the game.

                        But at the same time a coin toss is the most traditional way to end a tie. So I thought why not just shoot for the coin toss right off the bat?

                        That way I don't have to stress all game about the props. Get the pick em result out of the way early and we can both sit back relax and enjoy the game. Hopefully resulting in a Broncos win.

                          Yinz would do it to me. Lol. I forgot the tiebreaker of total points. Please add it. And dammit, don't make it the same. Lol.

                              Again, Please note that I added a total points tiebreaker to it. Next year, I will have both in the finals PM me their answers and I will post them after I get them both to prevent this.
