$100 college/pro pickem league


Recommended Posts

Right now we have 294 people. We had 380 last year.

 

It's a key pick pool meaning if you ever get 7/7 key picks in a week, you get your $100 back. If you get 7/7 more than once, you get put in the key pick pool side pot.

 

Also pays out weekly, bowl season, and season long winners. Picks are ATS and usually involve 40-50 games each week.

ENTRY REQUIREMENT: 100 nuggets for the entire season, due no later than 5pm eastern time Thursday Sept 1, 2016. 

POOL FORMAT
This is a Key Pick Pick'em pool. In addition to picking all the games each week, you designate 7 games as your Key Picks. For each Key Pick that you get right, you will get 1 point for the win, plus 1 bonus points. A regular (non-Key) pick is worth 1 point.

POOL SCHEDULE
The picksheet will be set each week by the pool manager (COBBTIGER) and will include about 50 pro and/or college games each week. The pool begins with games on Thursday Sept 1, 2016. There will be not picks in week 15 (Dec 8-12) due to the limited number of games available that week (only one college game that week). This pool ends with the completion of the National Championship game played in Jan 2017.

POINTSPREADS
This pool uses point spreads and your win-loss record is 'Against the Spread'. The team you pick must cover the spread for you to get credit for a win.

WEEKLY STANDINGS
The Weekly Standings in this pool are based on 'Points'. The person with the most points is ranked highest.

If there is a tie after 'Points', the first tiebreaker is 'Key Wins'. The person with the most Key Wins is ranked highest.

If there is a tie after 'Key Wins', the next tiebreaker is 'Wins'. The person with the most wins is ranked highest.

If there is a tie after 'Wins', it will be considered a tie.

CONFIRMING PICKS
It is your responsibility to confirm that your own picks are accepted by the website. You should see the Congratulations Screen after submitting your picks and you should receive a pick confirmation email. If you are still unsure if your picks were accepted, you should return to the picksheet, not by using your browser's back button, but by clicking on the My Picks link. If your picks were accepted they will be prefilled on the picksheet. 

POSTPONED GAMES
If a game is postponed to a later week, all the picks for that game will be deleted by the website. The website will send an email notification to the people who picked that game and their pool managers. Whether they get the email or not, it is the responsibility of the individual pool member to know that the game was postponed and to enter a new pick (if necessary) before the pick deadline passes.

DISPUTES
If there is ever a discrepancy between what the website shows and what the player says he/she entered, the website will be considered correct. If there is ever a discrepancy between what the website shows and a pick confirmation email, the website will be considered correct.

*****7/7 KEY PICKS REWARDS (Key Picks Side Pot - 9500 nuggets allocated)

For those that hit an initial 7/7 weekly key pick, you automatically win 100 nuggets. Once 
you hit the 7/7 the first time, you then move to eligibility for the season end consolidated 
KEY PICKS SIDE POT (minimum amount of 5000 nuggets in consolidated pot). If you hit 
a 7/7 a second time, then you will win ONE SHARE of the consolidated key picks side pot. 
***Restrictions apply (see below)***

***** Initial Key Picks paid out under the following conditions (Please Read Carefully):

1. Initial Key Picks reward of 100 nuggets will be paid only to the first 45 players that hit 
the 7/7 weekly key picks. Also, initial 7/7 key pick rewards will only be paid during weeks 
1-14. In other words, initial payments of 100 nuggets will expire at the first 45 players to 
pick 7/7, or if 45 players have not hit 7/7 key picks by the end of week 14. Any balance 
short of 4500 nuggets will be added to the XXXX nugget consolidated pot.

2. If a player hits an initial 7/7 key picks in weeks 16-19, that player is still eligible for the 
consolidated key picks pot. The player just won't collect 100 nuggets.

3. If a player hits two 7/7 weekly key picks, that player gets one share of the consolidated 
key picks pot. If a player hits three weekly 7/7 key picks, that player then has two shares, 
and so on.

4. If at season end there are no players that hit TWO weekly 7/7 key picks during the 
season, the consolidated pot will be divided equally among the top five players with the 
highest total of key picks wins over the course of the season in the final season standings 
(tiebreak is most overall wins).
