Official Survivor Pool picks thread
There's a few threads on here about survivor pools. One in lineup discussion asking which team to pick (wrong forum) and the one here about how all the pools are 'ruined' due to Pats losing.
I want to start this thread so we can discuss picks for the upcoming weeks.
Looking at Week 3 I see a couple options.
Chicago vs StL - 9 point favorites
Dallas vs TB - 7 point favorites
NO vs KC - 9 point favorites
Pit @ OAK - 4.5 point favorites
In terms of Yahoo picks as of now, 27% picked new orleans, 21% picked San Fran. SF is a 7 pt favorite @ Minnesota.
11% are on Chi and Pit.
Only 2.69% on Dallas.
As it stands now I'm leaning towards Pit as my favourite pick. I think they are consistently decent, and Oakland just sucks so bad. There's also not that many good times in the future to use Pittsburgh.
A lot of people have strong principles about never picking a road team, or never picking a divisional game. I am not one of those people.
So that is the pick I like the most...at the moment.
I don't trust the bears and st. louis put up points this week against wash so i'm hesitant to take that. Also chi has some good future value.
I also don't trust dallas. They got stomped by seattle, and tb gave nyg a run for their money this week. Not going there.
I think Saints vs KC has to be my 2nd favorite. The saints look out of form, but I think they are too good to lose to KC. The saints eliminated me last year though in my 2nd chance pool, so i am a little wary to take them.
Lastly that San Fran @ Minny game wasn't even on my radar. They will probably win, but I'm not as comfortable with it as Pit @ Oak, and SF has way too much future value to use them now.
So as it stands in my 2 pools I'm looking at taking Pit and NO.
