Rules for a Standard Football Pool

General Rules

This football pool covers the regular season of the American professional football league. There are 17 weeks in the regular season, and this football pool spans all 17 weeks.

Each week you'll submit who you think will win each football game. For the last game of the week (usually Monday night) you will specify the total number of points you think will be scored in that game. For each game you choose correctly, you will receive 1 point. The player with the most games chosen correctly will win the pool for that week. If there is a tie, the player that is closest to the actual total points scored in the last game of the week will win the tiebreaker. If there is a tie after that, the winnings will be split up between those players.

Deadline For Submitting Picks

Picks are due at the start of the first game of each week.
