    Default D2's Cakebread Playoff Pool

    I've decided to donate my bottle of Cakebread Cab for the the dot.orger that can pick the most wins throughout the balance of the playoffs.

    Here's my rules, like at work they are absolute and if I decide to change them along the course of the playoffs I likely will.

    Entry fee: $0 dollars
    Risk: none
    Picks: Select the winner based on the spreads I provide each week.
    Points: Each correct pick for this week is 2 points, next week 3 points, following week 4 points, Vanier is 5 points.
    Selections: Must be done by naming a team winner and can be sent to me by private message if you wish, which I'll try and post after the game starts.
    Added Bonus: From the date of this change any underdog that wins outright gets a bonus 2 points, thus if Calgary wins the Vanier picking them nets 7 points not 5.

    Tiebreaker: total points for the Vanier game
    2nd Tiebreaker: total points without being over the actual combined score
    3rd Tiebreaker: OUA supporters, then Q, then CW then AUS fans. This may sound unfair but it's in the order of conference that caused me winning the bottle pool.

    Week 1
    Acadia at MTA -2.5
    McMaster -3.5 at Laurier
    Carleton at Western -7.5
    McGill at Montreal -17.5
    Concordia at Laval -22.5
    Sask at Calgary -4.5
    UBC at Regina -5.5

    Good luck to those that join.

    If no one logs on before the games tomorrow you'll have a 51% chance of winning, I'd have you beat then change my picks last minute again

    Great Idea D2 - in no way would I take your bottle but will play a great game you have put together.

    MTA
    Laurier
    Western
    Montreal
    Laval
    Calgary
    Regina

    Call me a homer too but it is a different game in the playoffs and they usually win despite the spread.

    I'm in Italy right now so I'm hoping my Euro coin works as well as my "special" one.

    Week 1
    Acadia at MTA -2.5 - Home team, 2.5 isn't much
    McMaster -3.5 at Laurier - Better kicker will make a diff in game with one dimensional offenses & tough defenses
    Carleton at Western -7.5 - Stangs win a close one. Or they trample the Ravens. Toss up. Take the points
    McGill at Montreal -17.5 - No comment. Uninteresting conference.
    Concordia at Laval -22.5 - Ditto.
    Sask at Calgary -4.5 - I like UofS's momentum.
    UBC at Regina -5.5 - Regina wins but I'm gambling it isn't by a lot. Probably Picton leads Rams to a come-from-behind win on final drive.
