How Confidence Pools Work

  • Each week you pick a winner for every game, and place a "weight" on each game from 1 to 16*.
  • The more confident you are in the pick, the higher points you give to that team.
  • For each win you get the points you assigned the pick.
  • The player with the most points during the week wins any configured weekly prizes.
  • The player with the most cumulative points after the season ends wins the league.
