Picking Contest Results for Week No. 8; Enter Week No. 9

For contestants, this week's results for Division I and Division III were night and day. See the details below and on the contest pages for Men's Division I and Men's Division III, which contain links for the weekly results in both alpha order by user name and in ranked order by number of games picked correctly and then number of points assigned in those games.

Above the main table are links to the overall results, also available in alpha or ranked order. We're declaring weekly winners, so feel to enter as many or as few installments as you wish. You can locate your score most easily using the alpha lists, although the rank-ordered listings will show how you stack up versus the field.

Notes

(1) For the overall results, we will drop the lowest score for people who enter every week. However, if you get a lower score or miss an installment down the road, the previously dropped score will re-enter the picture.

(2) Starting with Week 6 and continuing to the finish, the tables of overall results include everyone who has entered at least n-2 of the n weeks to date.


Results for Week No. 8 of the Contest

Men's Division I

There were again no perfect slates this week, not when half the games could be considered upsets. Under the circumstances, it is perhaps surprising that as many as four people missed only a single game. The winner, who had the closest estimate (222) of the total goals scored in the 10 games (216), is:

How did the picks of the consensus fare? It was another week when coin-tossing would have matched most people's logic and analysis. Five favorites fell, two of those in overtime.
