NFL Picks Against the Spread Competition 

Post#1 » by bwgood77 » Wed Aug 22, 2018 5:17 pm

Hey all, once again we will be having the NFL Picks against the spread competition for all of RealGM forum members.

It only takes a couple minutes to join and also to make your picks each week, and you can see how you do against fellow forum members as well as experts. It adds an extra interest to the games on Sunday, so hopefully people join in and participate to make things fun. Your worst week will be dropped, so no worries if you completely forget one week, you are not out of it, that will just end up being your week dropped.

When does it start?
Register and submit your entry no later than the first game of the NFL season - Thursday, September 6th, at 8:00 pm ET.

How to Play?
1. Join group. Pick an entry name that matches your RealGM username. If you don't already have an account, you can click on "Play Now for Free" and it will ask you to log in or create an account and you can create account there. Many participants use their realgm username for their espn account and their contest entry name.
2. Check your user settings here. Enable Group email and Reminder Email, so you don't miss picks any week.

Rules
[*] Each Tuesday, spreads will be posted on ESPN for the the upcoming week.

[*] Lock-time. All entries will use a rolling lock which allows a player to pick any game that has yet to kick off. Selections submitted after the deadlines are considered invalid, and no points will be received. It is good to make preliminary picks a few days before the games and adjust your picks leading up to the games as you see fit to eliminate the chance of forgetting to make any picks that week at all.

[*] Overall tie-breaker - higher number of points scored for Week 17.
- --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - ---
Competition
Beat the Commish Champion
The player with the highest number of correct picks throughout the season wins the title.

Each correct winning pick will receive one (1) point. Points are not lost for incorrect picks. Picking every game, every week is essential.

However, to ensure people don't drop out if they forget a week or have a terrible week, each entry will have their lowest scoring week dropped from their score.

Big thanks to Dirk for the layout.

We watched the tragedy unfold. We did as we were told, we bought and sold. It was the greatest show on Earth...but then it was over.

I will not miss a week. This is my year. I'm vegan and healthy now.
My name is Throwback24. I’m 27 years old. I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy I’ll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now.

Lowest week dropped anyway, mostly so if people completely forget or submit late one week, it doesn't kill their chances.

Can we have a first repeat champion? I think Wo1verine almost did it a couple years ago....1 pick short after almost going nearly perfect in the final week.

I really need a solid week for any hopes of a repeat, just a couple of "base hits" so far (2- 8 point weeks).
