In addition to our weekly staff picks, we also see the debut of a new column this week here on PhinPhanatic – the Staff Locks and Upsets. Each week, each of the staffers listed below will select both a “Lock” pick and an “Upset” pick, and explain why they believe this to be the case. In order to be a lock, the staffer has to see absolutely no possible way that the team will lose this week, while for the upset pick it will be a team that is expected to lose but we see winning.
As you can see above, there were several trends in both the “Weekly Lock” and the “Upset Pick.” Each week, we’ll keep up to date standings around how we’re each doing in each category. Feel free to provide us with your own locks or upsets in the comments below, as well as tell us precisely how wrong we are (or even stroke our ego’s and tell us what genuises we all are if you’re so inclined – this is encouraged).
Fins up, folks!
