Peiser's Hoops Picks December 17-19

I do not call these ratings the PiRate Basketball ratings, because I have not compiled them using my own formula. These ratings are a weighted average of 10 computer ratings available free to the public plus one subscription only rating. I have only supplied the weighting adjustments based on the past history and current accuracy of each rating.

Ratings & SEC Picks for Saturday, December 17 thru Monday, December 19
 
I do not call these ratings the PiRate Basketball ratings, because I have not compiled them using my own formula. These ratings are a weighted average of 10 computer ratings available free to the public plus one subscription only rating. I have only supplied the weighting adjustments based on the past history and current accuracy of each rating. One rating alone accounts for 24% of this week's average, while five ratings account for only 4% each. The number following the teams' records indicates a simulated number (based on the weighting formula) of poll votes like the AP and USA Today Polls have. This data is for games through December 14.
