It kinda of gets rid of my degen side. Pick straight up winner of every game and give each a different  point value 1-13 if 13 games. 

Undefeated last week allows me to add to my bankroll. Been doing this for years and never seen an undefeated week.

So you are in a confidence picks pool.  We do a large office pool ATS and someone always get 15/16 or 12/13 every week to win.  This week the winner went 11-1-1. So not surprised by a perfect week straight up.

we have a spread pickem pool for money but one year in addition to that we tried the confidence pickem pool for free. no one liked it though so that got canned.

probably because Jane from accounting can't handle the few extra minutes it takes to assign the confidence points.  Cant just quickly pick every game.  I could fill out my ATS office pool sheet in 5 seconds if I wanted too.

Only Pools I'm in this year is Proline Pools (in Canada).

Gotta pick a SU winner for every game played that week... person(s) with the highest number of correct picks takes the pot.  Pot can get well up into the $400K+ range, but especially in weeks where there's only 13 games, you usually get hundreds of winners which takes the cut down to ~$1,000 at times.  Easier since you can "box" games out, too.
