2022 NFL Picks Pool - Rules
Each entry will choose who they think will win every game on the schedule each week of the NFL regular season.
-Choose the most correct picks each week and win the weekly prize.
-Choose the most correct picks all season and you will become the NFL Picks Pool champion.
-Incorrect picks score zero points
Any ties will be determined using the tiebreaker procedure listed in the "Tiebreakers" section below.
Weekly Tiebreaker: If there should be a tie after the Monday night game is completed each week, the tied entry that chooses the total points scored of both teams closest to the actual total score of the Monday night game will win the tiebreaker. If there is still a tie, the payout will be split among those entries still tied.
-If there are 2 Monday night games, the last game scheduled will be the tiebreaker game.
-If there is no Monday night game (Week 18), the last game to start of the late starting Sunday games will be used as the tiebreaker. If multiple games start at the same time that week, the commish will announce which game will be used as the tiebreaker.
Season Tiebreaker: If there should be a tie at seasons end for most correct picks, Season Strength of Victory (SOV) will be used to determine the pool champion. Other payouts will be determined the same way.
SOV: Add (or subtract) the scoring differential for each game all season. Incorrect picks subtract from this total. Correct picks add to this total.
- Correct pick with a game score of 20-17 scores +3 SOV
- Incorrect pick with a game score of 20-17 scores -3 SOV
To increase your chances of winning, you may play as many times as you wish. Each entry will be scored separately.
If you would like to play a 2nd or 3rd entry, you may choose them at signup. If you have already signed up and wish to add additional entries, please contact the league commish at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To pay for additional entries online, just change the quantity when you get to the page where you pay for your entries.
Buy 2 Get One Promotion: For the 2021 season, if you purchase 2 NFL Picks Pool entries, you receive a free entry into any one of our pools with a $20 or less entry fee. There is no limit to the amount of Picks Pool entries you can purchase, nor free entries you can earn this way.
IF YOU PLAYED LAST SEASON, when the pool is ready for the new season, you will receive an email invitation from the pool commissioner. In this email will be a link to a shorter renewal signup page. Complete the renewal and your entry will be re-added to the pool for the season.
NOTE: You will still need to pay for your entry/entries in order to finalize your active status in the pool, however, instructions will be provided in that same email on how to renew your entry for the season.
IF YOU ARE NEW TO THE POOL, you will need to use the full signup page before you can make selections online.
Please follow these steps closely for a pain free signup process.
1.) Click the signup button in the "Cost to Play" section at the top of this page. This will take you to the signup page.
2.) Complete the signup page, then click "Submit" at the bottom of the signup page.
After you have signed up, you should receive email instructions on how to access your entry/entries and pay for your entries.
If you have any questions during the process, please don't hesitate to contact the league office. Just click on the email address at the bottom of this page to email.
Please note that in order to maintain the highest integrity of these pools, payments for all entries must be received by the deadline. If entries are not paid by the deadline, they will be removed from the pool for non payment. If you are having trouble with payment, please contact the commish.
You can make your selections any time before the scheduled kickoff time of each game. Selections may also be changed at any time prior to the regularly scheduled kickoff time for that game. Once the deadline has passed for a game, though, your pick is locked in for that game. If you haven't made a pick by the deadline, you're out of luck.
PICKS POSTED BY COMMISH: If you need help making your selections or are having issues logging on, please contact the commish with your selection before the deadline and he will make it for you. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of pool participants to ensure that your picks are made and are entered before the picks deadline each week.
WHEN ARE SELECTIONS POSTED: Selections are posted immediately after the deadline passes for each game.
WHEN ARE RESULTS POSTED: Results are posted shortly after the conclusion of each game.
If 60+ players participate in the pool, payouts will increase further using the same structure as above. The commish will announce the finalized payouts after the pool starts, if more than 60 players are entered.
