NFL Loser Football Pools

How to Play

The Loser Football Pool is our most popular format. Entrants pick one team each week of the NFL season, including the play offs, to lose. Each NFL team has a corresponding point value relative to their performance in the previous season. If the team selected loses, the entry earns the point value associated with the team as their score for the week. If the team selected wins or ties, the entry earns zero points for the week. The entry with the most total points at the end of the play offs is the winner. There is no limit to the number of times an entrant can select a team.


Default Picks - Choose from several options to assign a team to an entry that doesn't make a pick prior to the deadline.
Loser Football Pools will be available on 2017/05/31 12:00pm.

Site News

  • Nov 22, 2017 - We've added a Slack workspace to communicate with pool managers. You can find a link to our workspace at the bottom of the site. It's the hashtag looking icon under Connect With HostedPools. We will be integrating it with our Trello boards so you can keep tabs on what ideas are out there as well as what we're currently working on.
  • Nov 1, 2017 - We've moved some of the manager specific menu items into the Manager Tools dashboard to tidy up the menu on mobile devices. We're also adding some reports as well as a simple text editor for the pool note and pool emails to the Manager Tools as part of a revamp of that section.
  • Oct 26, 2017 - We're working on bringing pick reminders back to the site. New registrations will have the option to allow them when they register. All existing users will have them turned on by default but will be able to turn them off on the account page.
  • Sep 6, 2017 - The NFL has officially moved the Tampa Bay/Miami game to their mutual Week 11 bye. As a result, we have moved the game to Week 11 and it is no longer available for selection in Week 1. Any entries that had selected Tampa or Miami have had their selection cleared, and were sent an email notification to update their selection.
