|Scoring:|| Pool includes all pro games.
Picks are always weighted from 16 down to last game available.
Ties go to player with closest total points for MNF game.
Players who do not make picks, will receive one fewer point than the player who had the lowest correct picks score for the week.
|Deadline:|| Games for each day will lock five minutes before the scheduled start of the day's first game. For example, if there is a Thursday night game and a member did not make a selection, they would still be able to make selections for the remaining games. Please note - pool member's selections will only be displayed in the 'View All' picks section for games that have locked.|
|Finances:|| $50.00 entry fee.
$50 per person, payable up front. Money must be received no later than Thursday September 10th. If your payment is not received, you will be dropped from the pool.
What does my $50 pay for?
Money will be dispersed as prizes during the course of the season. $2 per person per week will go to the weekly prize and $10 per person will go to the overall winner of the season pool.
+$34 for weekly prizes (17 weeks, $2 per week)
+$16 for season prizes
$50 Total for season
Example Prizes (assuming 50 players)
Weekly Winners: ($100 Weekly Pot)
• 1st place = $70
• 2nd place = $20
• 3rd place = $10
Overall Season Winners: ($800 Season Pot)
• 1st place = $500
• 2nd place = $200

There will be NO refunds, so if you quit before the end of the season you can sell your spot to whoever you like for whatever you can get and they will assume your points total as far as the overall standings go.
Seasons standings will be automatically calculated from each individual’s results.
In the event the tie-break fails to do its job for determining the weekly winners the relevant prize money will be split. In the event of ties for the season prizes, the player pick records will be used to determine the winners and if necessary, the prize money will be split.
Note: once the number of players has been determined the actual amounts for the weekly and season prizes will be determined and will be rounded to whole dollar values.
Pick the team you think is going to win and allocate a point value to the game. This is a straight-up pick. Point spreads are not used.
Each number from 1-16 can only be used once and invalid picks will be rejected at the time of submission with a warning issued to the user.
If the team you picked wins then you will score the point value that you assigned that pick. If the team you picked loses you score zero on that pick. If a tie game occurs everyone will score the value they assigned to that game.
The person with the highest total score for the week wins.
For those that have never played this kind of pool before here's a quick hint: allocate 16 pts to the pick you are most confident about, 15 to next, etc. down to 1 pt. for the one you are least confident about.
If 14 games are played during a week (Bye-Weeks), when teams have off/bye weeks, allocate from 16 down to 3.
When you submit your picks you will be prompted for the tie breaker. You must predict the total combined score for the teams involved in the Monday night game. The smallest difference between the predicted point total and the actual point total for the game will be used to determine the winner in the case of place ties.
In the event that there is more than one Monday night game, the tie breaker is for the final game of the evening. Also, if there is no Monday game, the tie breaker is for the final game of the week.
Entries are due 5 minutes prior to the start of the first game on that day.
For example if there is a Thursday night game, you must submit your pick for that game 5 minutes prior to kickoff. Sunday picks must be made 5 minutes prior to the kickoff of the first game of the day.
Lock Out - Games for each day will lock five minutes before the scheduled start of the day's first game. For example, if there is a Thursday night game and a member did not make a selection, he/she would still be able to make selections for the remaining games. Please note - pool members' selections will only be displayed in the "View All" picks section for games that have locked.
