My picks:

Atlanta over Phildelphia
New England over Tennessee
Jacksonville over Pittsburgh
Minnesota over New Orleans

Also, just spotted the ribbon requirement:
Quote:
 
If you get 8 or more total wins, you get a Red Ribbon!

To be honest, this is too easy. It means someone with an 8-7 win/loss rate wins a ribbon. It also means someone guessing blindly (with a 50% chance of winning with each guess) has a 50% chance of winning the ribbon. This is not an "exceptional achievement, above and beyond what is normally required to win": see what I said at the end of last year here.

I'd be happy to accept "At least 10 wins", or "At least 8 wins with a 67% win/loss rate", though. So, could you please raise the ribbon requirement?

I actually decided not to include the All-Star challenge+Game as actual wins towards the ribbon, it will just give users extra CC if they predict correctly, so instead of 15, it goes down to 11 (If my math is correct) so 8/11 wins needed should sound right for a ribbon

Okay, that sounds much better: 8 out of 11 would be fair :) .

Actually after doing the math we could do this:

Participants can either choose to either to the All-Star Game or All-Star Challenge

Whichever they choose they have the chance to get a win, while the other can be for bonus CC

This way, they can still keep the .666 win percent since it will be 8/12

Or you could include both and make the requirement 9/13. That'd be much simpler and less confusing :P .

Well here's the Super Bowl Matchup!

Super Bowl: (1) New England Patriots (15-3) vs. (1) Philadelphia Eagles (15-3)

But this Sunday is the Pro Bowl! (I was also going to count the All-star challenge, but it was last night, oops)

AFC vs. NFC Sunday 3:00 PM on ESPN/ABC

Now to make up for my laziness
You start with a bonus 50CC to predict the score, however many points you are off, you lose that amount from the bonus 50

Example: You Predict 28-21, but actual is 30-24, so you lose 5CC but get 45 extra

Predictions:
AFC 30 - NFC 27
New England over Philadelphia

Quarter > 1 2 3 4 OT T
(22-23) NFC 7 13 0 3 NA 23

Results:
Pokemon73: Correct (7-4) + 27(23)-30(24) = +40CC
CJ: Incorrect (6-5) + 31(23)-24(24) = +42CC

Results are both participants finished 7-5, so no ribbon and easy to calculate totals

Pokemon73 receives 390CC
CJ receives 392CC

So I believe I just need to send CJ his CC and then thats it
