NBA Playoffs Confidence Pool
How to run an NBA Playoff Confidence Pool
Rules for this pool
The idea behind the NBA Playoff Confidence Pool is to rank the teams from 1 to 16 based on who you think will win the most games in the playoffs. After the NBA season is complete and the Playoff Matchups are set, start by printing a copy of the grid above and passing it out to all potential participants. We also have the Printable NBA Playoff Bracket available.
Have the pool participants write the team name in the square beside the corresponding number. The #16 team being the team they think will win the most games throughout the playoffs, the #15 team being the team to win the second most games, and so on, all the way down to #1.
Each time a team wins a game, the pool participant will get the corresponding points(rank = points).
After the Finals champion is crowned, add up the points accumulated from each individual team and write that amount in the "Total Points" column. Then add up the points in the "Total Points" column and write the final total in the gray box that says "Total Points". The participant with the most points wins! If you're looking for another fun office pool to run try our NBA Playoff Squares where the idea is similar to the Super Bowl Squares, but instead of drawing numbers you will draw team names and the winning square will be the two teams playing in the NBA Finals.
