How to Play College/NFL Football Pools

  • Choose Your Pool Type:
    • NFL and NCAA - Best of both worlds - each week choose from both NFL and NCAA games. Regular season lasts from the first NCAA game to the final NFL regular season game.
    • NFL Only - Play with NFL games only. For this type of pool, we load up all the NFL games for you when you create the pool. You can delete games you don't want using the Game Picker option.
    • NCAA Only - Play with College games only. Regular season ends on Championship weekend.
  • Choose Your Season:
    • Regular Season - Play from the opening game of the season to the last week of the season (NCAA pools end on Championship weekend, Combo and NFL pools end on last game of NFL regular season).
    • Regular Season and Post Season - Keep the fun going! NCAA pools go to the National Championship bowl game. NFL and Combo pools end with the Superbowl.
  • Choose the Type of Game- we offer 4 ways to score:
    • Weighted (1-n)
      • Assign confidence points to each game, 1-N, where N is the number of games in your pool (10 is a good number each week). Each game must have a unique confidence number.
      • Win the number of points assigned to a game if you correctly pick the winner
    • Fixed
      • Win 1 point per game if you correctly pick the winner
    • Custom Weights
      • The commissioner assigns the weights of each game each week.
      • Win the number of points the game is worth if you correctly pick the winner
    • Bonus Points
      • Games are worth 1-3 points, depending upon the spread
      • Correctly pick favorite or underdog of 3 or less spread - get 1 point
      • Correctly pick underdog between 3.5 and 7 spread - get 2 points
      • Correctly pick underdog with spread greater than 7 - get 3 points
  • Choose whether you use a Spread or not:
    • Examples of using the spread:
      • If the spread is team A -3.5 points over team B, and you pick team B, you win as long as either team B wins or team A wins by less than 3.5 points.
      • If you had picked team A in the above situation, you only win if team A wins by more than 3.5 points.
    • Or you can just pick who the winner is (the Spread is only for information
  • Control Which Games Are In Your Pool
    • Your pool commissioner selects which games you play each week
    • Anyone can suggest games by selecting RECOMMEND GAMES- the commissioner will be able to see all suggestions when he/she makes her matchups
    • The commissioner can select games by using the SEASON PASS (selecting all games of a team or a conference), AUTOPICKS (the best 10 matchups of the top 25 and/or NFL games) and/or individually.
    • Games need to be selected prior to midnight on Sunday of the week (NCAA Only) or Monday of the week (NFL and Combo Pools). Games can be selected anytime before then, including choosing all your matchups for the entire season
  • Optional: Tie-breaker
    • You can add a tie-breaker - which is to predict the final score of the a selected game in your pool
    • Tie-breaker determines the winner if two or more people tie after all games have been played
    • Commissioner can prioritize the order of the tie-breaker from five options:
      • Whoever picks the winner of the game correctly (had more points on the actual winner than on the loser of the game).
      • Which player had the best win/loss percentage (for the week, the segment or the season)
      • Whoever was closest to the winning team's score of the game.
      • Whoever was closest to the losing team's score of the game.
      • Whoever was closest to the combined score of both the winning and losing teams.
  • Most points wins!
  • Picks are due before kickoff of each game, or noon of Saturday (NCAA/Combo) or 1:00 Sunday (NFL), whichever is earlier.
  • Don't have a pool to play in, join one of our partner pools - they're open to everyone and some offer great prizes.
