How to play:

Here is the way this game works. I will supply the Weeks matchups. With each matchup will be the line as of the last 24 hours. What you need to do is:

  • Step 1: Pick 3 teams who are NOT the favorites that you think will cover the spread
  • Step 2: Well…that’s it

What you are trying to do, is select the three teams most likely to beat the spread in the comments below. You will get the points POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE that each team earns vs. the Spread. Also, if you miss a week, 5 points will be deducted from your score, so once you start, you can’t quit!

Week 1 Recap

  • Mark: 21
  • Pete: 15
  • RK 1101: -3
  • Feslen: -50.5
  • Sixtus: -51.5

Mark got lucky knowing the Browns will always break your heart, taking that away I would have been at -14.5. Pete was tried and true picking nothing that cost him points. RK did well fairing positive in 2 of his 3 picks. Sixtus and Feslen fell into the Miami trap.

Onto Week 2!
