Scoring


For against-the-spread scoring methods, we use half-point spreads, so, there are never any ties. We've found that half-point spreads make understanding how to pick teams against the spread a lot easier. We typically get spread information from reputable outlets, like ScoresAndOdds.com, OddsShark.com and VegasInsider.com. For games with teams that have key injuries, where Vegas is slow/reluctant to release a spread. This scenario doesn't typically happen very often, but, when a key player, like a starting QB or primary RB sustains an injury and there is no information available about whether that player will play the next game or not, then the release of the spread for that game may be delayed several days. In the event that a spread for a game is delayed a few days, we may intervene and come up with a spread, ourselves. We prefer not to do that, but, if a spread is not announced by Wednesday night or Thursday morning, before a Saturday game, we'll put one in there.
Please note, that once a spread is put into the system, it can't be changed, because people may have already made their picks based on that spread.
We tweet/post new games and spreads, amongst other things, via our twitter account and our facebook page. Follow us to stay abreast of the latest changes.
We have 8 different scoring options to choose from.
Straight Pick em
» 1 point for each correct pick
 
Ranked Pick em
» For each correct pick, users will receive the number of points equal to the confidence rank that they entered for that game.
» The goal is to score the most points, which may not equate to the most wins
» The "catch" is that ranking numbers can only be used once
  • Put high points on your most confident pick
  • Put low points on your least confident pick

 
Pick em Against The Spread (ATS)
» All games are picked against half-point spreads
» 1 point for each correct pick
» How it works: Picking Against the Spread
  • Picking against the spread is where you try to determine which team will cover the spread; not necessarily which team will win.
  • While certain teams will win their game, they will not “cover the spread”, and thus if the team is selected it will count as a loss.
  • Example
    • The home team is favored by 16.5 points (-16.5)
    • The home team beats their opponent by 8 points (31 to 23), but, the home team's spread was (-16.5), so, when picking against the spread, the home team's score was 14.5 (31 minus 16.5), which is less than their opponent's score of 23.
    • This means anyone who picked the home team to win by 16.5 points or more was incorrect, since they only won by 8 points

When do the playoffs start?

The NFL playoffs typically start the first weekend in January: Saturday, January 6, 2018.


Pool administrators can abdicate their admin prividges, to avoid any chance or thought of impropriety, from other poolies. We ask that the pool administrator send us an email requesting us to remove his admin priviledges after all the settings have been configured and all expected players have joined. This is so no other admin tasks are required.
