This is a decent idea, but I'd have to hear how it would work exactly though. I'm listening...
An example from a wrestling forum's game that uses this:
Let's say there are 8 matches on the card. In addition to picking who would win a match, you then assign a number value, in this case 1-8, to winner of said match based on how confident you are they'll win. 1 is least confident, 8 most. Each number may only be used once. If your guy wins, you get assigned number of points. If your guy loses, you get zero. Sample:
Wrestler A vs. Wrestler B-Wrestler A (5)
Wrestler C vs. Wrestler D-Wrestler D (3)
Wrestler E vs. Wrestler F-Wrestler E (8)
And so on down the rest of the card. In the end, they determine winners by total points earned, not actual pick record. So it's possible for someone with a 7-1 record to beat someone with an 8-0 record.
