Rules

Due to COVID-19 or any other event that would have the football season being cancelled or abruptly ending, the season must have fully completed 12 weeks.
If the season ends prior to that period, all monies will be returned to players and players who have won weekly prizes would also return any monies won.

The NFL has informed clubs that if a game cannot be rescheduled during the 18-week season due to a COVID outbreak, the team with the outbreak will FORFEIT
and be credited with a loss for playoff seeding. If by chance this happens, these games will not affect results in the pool. These games will be nullified.

The pool includes the regular season, the playoffs, and the Super Bowl. All post-season wins are added to your overall win total.
There are no weekly prizes once the playoffs start.

Two e-mails are sent out every week:

(1) Odds Posted email
(2) Reminder e-mail

Picks are due half an hour before game time of the first scheduled game for that week.
Summary Pages automatically appear immediately after the deadline time and can easily be printed (landscape).

If you forget or you are late in submitting you picks for any given week, you will get 1 less win than the lowest total of wins for that week.



Survivor Pool Prize

Pick one team to win each week. Easy, right?

Get it right and advance to the next week. Get it wrong and you're out.

The winner of the Survivor Pool will be the last entry remaining after all others have been eliminated.

Each week, you will select one NFL team to be your pick for that week (straight pick). Teams can only be selected once. If your pick WINS their game during that week you survive and advance to the next week. Games ending in ties eliminates you for this prize. If you forget your pick, this results in being eliminated for this prize.

Prize = $20 for each week of survival + Free entry the following year. (12 weeks of survival would result in a $240 prize)


Point Spread

The team you bet on must "cover the spread". This means they must win or lose by a predetermined margin of points.

Example:






If you bet on Miami, Miami must win by 7 points for you to win your bet.
If you bet on New York, any of the following will declare you a winner.

(a) New York wins the game.
(b) The game ends in a tie.
(c) New York loses the game by not more than 6 points.
