Point-spread NFL Pick'em Pool - 6th Year Running - Lots of Fun and Large Payouts

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

We are renewing our 6th Annual NFL Pick'em SUPER Pool. Each year has been more successful than the last, with great participation and exciting prizes and fun! The concept is simple: make your picks weekly for each NFL game, who you think will cover the spread. The person that gets the most picks correctly in any given week will win the top prize of $150 (which is the actual cost to join our league for the entire season), and 2nd most correct picks will win a consolation prize of $75. The REAL money is reserved for the best overall records over the course of the season.

It takes literally 5 minutes of your time each week to submit your picks, and makes each game MUCH more exciting! Please see below for details on how to join our SUPER POOL!

2016 SUPER POOL POINT SPREAD PICK EM LEAGUE!

COST TO JOIN:

An amount of $150 is incurred to join the Super Pool League. It is a one time fee and it covers you for the entire season (if you do the math, it equates to a measly $8.82/week). If you cant afford that, then w/all due respect you need a career change. Our cost to join the pool last year was $125 and it saw total prize money for season winners (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th place) totaling around $10,800, as well as 2 weekly winner for each week (Read below)! This year, the buy in amount went up $25, so we anticipate, for the 6th straight season - Record Cash Payouts!.
You are officially in the league when you pay the buy-in fee and add your squad! If we do not receive your payment of $150 before the start of the first game of the season, your team name will promptly be deleted and you will suffer the consequences of not being a part of this exciting league - NO EXCEPTIONS!!

 

WEEKLY WINNERS:

Each and every week, the person that has the most Wins will make money for that week. The actual amount per week will be the same amount each and every week. This amount will be determined by league participation and will immediately thereafter be posted on our league message board (the amount will be somewhere close to the buy in amount of $150). So essentially you will break even if you win 1 measly week.
2nd place weekly winners will make around $75.

JACKPOT WINNERS:

We are excited to announce the launch of our new Super Pool Jackpot! This jackpot is won when a player goes 15-0 or 16-0 in any week of the season. In order for a jackpot, the week must contain a minimum of 15 games and the player has to have a perfect record. The jackpot starts at $50 in week 1 and if nobody wins the jackpot in week 1, it goes up another $50, now totaling $100. Again if nobody has a perfect record in week 2, the jackpot goes up another $50 for week 3, now totaling $150. In other words, for every 15 or 16 game week that the jackpot is not hit, the jackpot continues to go up an additional $50. However, once the jackpot is hit, the jackpot amount immediately drops back to $50 and begins anew. In addition, if nobody wins the jackpot this upcoming season the cumulative amount is applied to week one of the following season. So for instance, if the jackpot reaches $400 and nobody hits it, then next season in week 1, the jackpot would total $450. This new jackpot will be another exciting way to win BIG MONEY!!

WEEKLY TIE BREAKERS:

If there is a tie between numerous teams, the tiebreaker will go to Monday Night Total Points, which you will input when making your picks. If there is still a tie, then the tiebreaker will go to Monday Night home team points. If the tie persists, then the tie breaker will go to Monday Night away team points.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
**VERY IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ OR YOU'LL BE CRYING LATER**

I can't stress this enough, so read this very carefully gang... ALL PICKS FOR ALL GAMES EACH WEEK MUST BE MADE BEFORE EVERY SATURDAY BY 7PM PACIFIC TIME!
If you fail to make your picks by each Saturday at 7pm, the system will automatically auto-pick for you by choosing all the favorites. If you fail twice, you are covered by the auto-pick system. However, if you fail to make your picks three times or more, you will automatically receive 0 Wins for that week and all weeks beyond your second time. If you fail and get 0 Wins, it is out of our control, and we don't have the ability to change anything. So beware of when the first game of each week begins! It will usually be on a Thursday evening
**BOTTOM LINE - MAKE YOUR PICKS BEFORE SATURDAY EVENING OR YOU'RE...... S.O.L.!!!!!!!!!!!!!**
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SEASON WINNERS:

The top 5-8 people with the most wins will make money. Again, the amounts and the number of places will be dependent on the total number of players. I can safely say that first place will receive a minimum of $3,000. This is a conservative estimate; the amount will probably be a lot more! The amounts for all 5-8 winners will be posted on this message board immediately after the first game of the season!

SEASON TIE BREAKERS:

If there is a tie between those in the money at season's end, the tie breakers go as follows in the below respective order:
1. Monday Night Total Cumulative Points (Week 1 thru 17 total MNF points closest to the grand total)
2. Best Single Week of the Year
3. Week 17 Record

*** Please keep in mind there is a miniscule 7% pot share***

GOOD LUCK TO ALL GANGS! THIS IS THE FUNNEST NFL LEAGUE AROUND!!!!
AND AS ALWAYS.......................... MAY YOUR PICKS TURN TO GOLD AND YOUR BANK ACCOUNTS EXPLODE!!!!!!!

Hi Elitzer,

We use the website "maximumfantasysports", and they post the spreads, usually on Tuesday but no later than Wednesday. The spreads become locked once posted for that week. However, you can change YOUR picks all the way up until Saturday (other than the Thursday game, obviously)

Let me know if you have any further questions!!
