Pool Rules

Detailed Pool Rules
For a full explanation of the rules follow this link.

The NFL Pool will run for the full season. You may have as many User IDs as you would like but you are allowed only one entry per week per ID.

To enter picks, fill in the entry form by selecting the outcome of each game. You will also be asked to guess the total points scored in the Monday Night Football game* which is used as a tie breaker. A Weekly Prize is awarded for the player who has the most correct picks for the week.

*Should the Monday Night Football game be scheduled for a different night, the last game scheduled for that week will be used as the tie breaker instead.

The winner for each week will be the player with the most correct picks. In the event of a tie, the player who guessed closest to the actual point total of the tie breaker game will win. Should two or more players still be tied, the pot will be divided equally among them.

Note: for the tie breaker, it does not matter if your point total is over or under the actual game total. It is the difference between the two numbers that counts.

Making and Changing Entries

When filling in an entry form, you do not have to make a pick for each game. All that is required is that you enter a point total for the tie breaker. This is helpful if there are early games scheduled for a given week (games played on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday). You may make your picks for these games beforehand and complete the rest later.

Games are automatically locked out on the entry form according to their scheduled date and time. Each game is locked at the start of the individual game.

Note: times displayed on the schedule are Eastern.

You may change your pick for any game up until the time that game is locked.

You may also change your tie breaker point total up until the time all entries are locked.

Entries must be completed on time. Once a game is locked, you may not change your pick for it. If you did not make a pick for a particular game, it is counted as a loss.

If you have trouble accessing the site, logging in or completing your entry, please contact the NFL Pool Administrator for help. If there are technical issues near lockout times for games then a timestamped email with your picks (print screens are helpful) should be sent to NFL Pool Administrator
