survivor pick:

    Congratulations, you won! How do I know this? Well, because everybody won. Last Sunday’s real upset was the fact that there was no upset. If you follow the NFL closely, you know that statement alone is as shocking as a 14-point underdog winning outright. The Eagles closed as about 1-point favorites in most places yet fell to the Rams, 37-19. The Saints were favored by 4.5 in Las Vegas on Monday night but dropped to 1-1 after a 34-24 defeat. Aside from that, Week 2 was as chalky as a blackboard. Ironically, the two biggest favorites came the closest to losing. The Chiefs closed around 9-point favorites and trailed the Chargers most of the game. The other close call came...
    After a wild first week, all of the most popular NFL survivor pool picks survived last week. In the first two weeks of the 2020 season, the public spread its survivor picks across a wide variety of choices, as there was no huge favorite in either week. That changes in Week 3 as the Colts, hosting the woeful Jets, become the first double-digit point-spread favorite of the season. In this post, we will analyze the five most popular survivor pool picks of NFL Week 3 using the “Holy Trinity” of survivor pick strategy data: win odds, pick popularity, future value. Over the past three years, our subscribers have reported nearly $2.5 million in survivor pool winnings thanks to this data-driven...
    The first NFL survivor week featured some carnage, as the Colts, Eagles, and 49ers were all popular choices that got upset right away. If you advanced, though, that means fewer survivor opponents to compete against in Week 2, since around 40 percent of survivor pool entries nationwide were eliminated last week. There are plenty of worthwhile pick options in Week 2, but making the right strategic choice can set yourself up for a deep run in your knockout pool this season. In this post we will analyze the five most popular survivor and knockout pool picks of Week 2 using the “Holy Trinity” of survivor pick strategy data: Win odds, pick popularity, and future value. Over the past three...
    Survive and advance! Though that phrase was created to convey the mindset of college hoops teams trying to navigate the unpredictability of March Madness, it applies just as fittingly to September. Survivor pools are a fall tradition as good as any. They offer a low-risk/ high-reward way to getting action on the games. Pick a team, any team, to just win the game. No point spread. If you win, you survive to play another week. The beauty of this contest lies in its simplicity. It expands the pool of people who can participate in a format that’s welcoming to the person in the office who doesn’t even watch football, yet challenging to even the sharpest of NFL bettors. Let’s...
    It’s officially time to start sweating your 2020 Week 1 NFL Survivor Pool picks. The opening week this year gives us quite a few legitimate survivor options, and there is no general agreement on which team is the best pick. At least five different teams, including the Ravens, Chiefs, and 49ers, are drawing 10 percent of the public’s picks, but no team is being selected more than 20 percent of the time. We will analyze the five most popular survivor and knockout pool picks of Week 1 using the “Holy Trinity” of survivor pick strategy data: Win odds, pick popularity, and future value. Over the past three years, our subscribers have reported nearly $2.5 million in survivor pool winnings thanks to this...
    In an NFL survivor pool, you need to successfully pick a winning team each week. The big catch is that you can only select each NFL team once. That rule turns what looks like a very simple game into a complex puzzle where you have to decide on a strategy for when to best use teams. That hidden complexity also creates opportunities for smart pool players. Survivor pools are high-risk ventures, and the most likely outcome is that you don’t win a specific pool. But with good strategy, you can increase your chances of taking down a pot and making great returns over the long run.

    The Mets already know they have a fighter in Eric Orze, the right-handed pitcher the organization drafted in the fifth round of the 2020 MLB Draft on Thursday. The 22-year-old pitcher out of the University of New Orleans was unable to compete in part of the 2018 season and all of the 2019 season as he recovered from multiple operations and battled testicular cancer and skin cancer. “This is a kid that will not quit. He really won’t,” Mets vice president of international and amateur scouting Tommy Tanous said on a video call. “Our scouts fell in love with his split-finger, to tell you the truth. He throws a heavy, heavy fastball and he uses that split as his out...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Eric Orze has already stared down much tougher challenges than the professional hitters he could soon be facing. Twice. As baseball’s amateur draft was winding down, a feel-good story surfaced in the final round Thursday night when the New York Mets selected Orze — a two-time cancer survivor. The 22-year-old pitcher from the University of New Orleans missed part of the 2018 season and all of 2019 to recover after fighting off testicular cancer and skin cancer. “This is a kid that will not quit. He really won’t,” Mets vice president of international and amateur scouting Tommy Tanous said on a Zoom call. “Our scouts fell in love with his split-finger, to tell...
