Bias List Scorecard

Below is my weighted chart, which is as close to a personal bias list as I’m going to get. Right now it heavily favors third-generation acts, but expect this to change as older months are added into the mix.
For this chart, I award three points to my top pick of each month, two points to my second place, and one point to my third.
