Stampede Blue Prediction Contest Results Week 8, Link for Week 9

New, comments

Week 8 had a few surprises (like nobody picking the Panthers over the Cardinals), but we continue with great participation.  The other big surprise was only 16/64 people picked the Eagles over the Giants, which ended up being a pretty big blowout.  Nobody picked the 49ers to win straight up, and only 2 correctly picked them to cover (one of them was who I called out for picking against the Colts last week).  This was also the first week that the Broncos or Saints lost ATS, so you can't ride that train anymore.

On to the Results.  In the Against the Spread contest, the winner this week is TouchdownMonkey, who got 9/13 games correct.  Nice job in a tough week!  Here's the leaderboard after 8 weeks:

In the Straight Up contest, the winner this week is skywalker, who got 11/13 games right.  Yours truly was tied with a slew of others at 10 correct, which is the closest I've been to the top yet this year.  Here's the leaderboard after 8 weeks:

shoein is still on top in both contests, although he's actually 1 game behind Bill Simmons.  Speaking of Simmons, he had a pretty good column on how he did so well early on in the season, and a warning that he's now just guessing, and you shouldn't listen to him:

Anyway, here's my request for the next few weeks: If you have bad luck, stay away from "borrowing" my 2009 picks. Don't be the cooler of my column. Let me see if I can keep banging out 10-4 and 11-5 marks every week without you attaching a black cat to my ankles. If you have bad luck and are joining forces with me, that means other people with bad luck are doing the same. How do you think that's turning out for all of us? Badly. Poorly. Tragically.

Full Standings are after the jump.  You'll notice I've only included the last 5 weeks, as it's too wide for any more.  That means if you haven't participated the past 5 weeks, you're out of the standings. I'll be around Sunday afternoon to let everyone see the picks.
