The 2nd annual NFL Pick'em vs. the spread challenge!
« on: August 23, 2013, 01:54:37 PM »
Welcome to the 2nd annual NFL pick'em vs. the spread challenge!!!

For those that played last year, you know this the toughest pick'em game on the planet!!!
The object is to have more correct picks than anyone else (obviously), while picking against the spread that Vegas sets. (I will be using "scoresandodds.com") There will be no even spreads, every game will be set with half points to avoid any picks ending in a tie (push). For example, if Vegas sets the line at -3, I will add or subtract a half point to that, and it will be -3.5 or -2.5

There will be BIG NGS bucks to be won every week all the way through, including the Super Bowl.

Here are the rules...

Copy and paste the pick list I provide (on this thread) and enter your pick next to that game. If you want to change a pick, you may change any pick on any game that has not started yet, but, make the change in a separate post.
DO NOT MODIFY OR EDIT YOUR PICKS AFTER THE THURSDAY GAME HAS KICKED OFF. THIS PREVENTS ANY POSSIBLE WAY OF CHEATING.

For the playoffs, over/unders and prop picks will be added to make the playoffs more challenging.

There will also be a tiebreaker every week, to help avoid as few ties as possible.
For the tiebreaker you will asked to pick the total points for the Monday night game. Whoever is closest to that total, will win that week. During playoff weeks, the last game to kickoff, will be the tiebreaker game.

One of the new elements to this challenge will be the "Lock of the week".
Every week you will be asked to pick 1 game as your best bet to win (cover).
This is just an NGS bucks bonus prize, and doesn't give you an extra win or loss.

The NGS bucks prize payouts will be:

Regular season (weekly): 1st place: $10,000
                                      2nd place: $5,000
                                      3rd place: $1,000
                                      Lock of the week: $2,500

Regular season (overall): 1st place: $100,000
                                      2nd place: $50,000
                                      3rd place: $25,000

Playoffs (weekly) 1st place: $100,000
                          2nd place: $50,000
                          3rd place: $25,000
                          Lock of the week: $10,000

Playoffs (overall) 1st place: $1,000,000
                         2nd place: $500,000
                         3rd place: $250,000

Our defending regular season champion from last season is... FOREPLUS!

Our defending playoff champion from last season is... BC!

Let's get this party started!!!  ber

Let's have fun with this. Trash talk is a must, and personal attacks should not be taken seriously, especially from Peter Gozinbutshedidntfeelathing.

BC gets all upset, if things are not left justified.

BC won the MKTF fantasy baseball league last year.

BC won the MKTF basketball brackets 2 years ago.

BC came in second in the basketball brackets last year and 3 years ago.

Woulda' won 3 years ago but Birf didn't pick UK.  facepalm

BC made the playoffs in the fantasy fooseball league 2 years ago.

So, I don't know what the hell.

You talkin' aboot.

Ah. I see you have stolen my idea of using NGS bucks to lure in more victims. Well, it worked, here I am. Even though I despise point spreads in the NFL, Ill play along. Hell, I cant be any worse at this than I was at straight up pich'em. Besides, if ignorance is bliss. I just might win this thing !!!!!!!

COACH, you know damn right well I'll play. I'll kinda consider it a spin off of BC's SOTG thread.

Partytaking ofcourse. I did it last year, can't remember how bad I did. I missed a few weeks or so too but had fun. COACH did a great job, otherwise I would'nt entertain the thought.
