NFL Pick 5 Football Pools

Pick 5 Football is a variation on a regular Pick'em pool, where each entry picks only 5 games of the full slate each week. The entrant chooses which 5 games to take from all possible games that week. Most Pick 5 pools will pick against the spread for added difficulty. This format is very similar to the huge SuperContest run by the Westgate in Vegas that all of the top handicappers participate in. This type of pool tends to be for the more serious participant.

How to Play

  1. Entrants pick the winners of any 5 games they choose each week of the NFL regular season.
  2. For each correct pick, the entry earns 1 point. If the team selected ties or pushes (in spread pools), the entry gets a half point.
  3. The entry with the most total points at the end of the regular season is the winner.
  4. There is no limit to the number of times a team may be selected.

Options

Spread - Judge outcomes based on the Hosted Pools listed spread.

Perfect Weeks - Have a weekly carryover (or shares) prize until an entry scores a full 5 points in a week.
