Plan Accordingly: Top Games – Week 13

UPDATE: Ranking system tweaked. Changes below.

Games are ranked like recruits: 5 stars, 4 stars, and 3 stars. Just like in recruiting, 2-star and 1-star games won’t be given much attention.

Games are ranked using a super-scientific system comparing the overall quality of the two teams and the closeness of the match-up. The quality of each team is found using Brian Fremeau’s, Bill Connelly’s, and ESPN’s advanced stats ranking systems.

PICK RESULTS

All Games Pct. Upset Picks Pct.
Last Week 11-10 .524 1-2 .333
Overall 91-60 .603 13-15 .464

Without further ado: the games. All times AZ.
