NFL Pick'em Football Pools

The Pick'em Football Pool format is what most people think about when you mention a football pool. Pick every game each week of the season to see who comes out on top. It's popular both against the spread as well as straight up.

How to Play

  1. Entrants pick the winners of every game each week of the NFL regular season.
  2. For each correct pick, the entry earns 1 point.
  3. If the team selected ties or pushes (in spread pools), the entry gets a half point.
  4. The entry with the most total points at the end of the regular season is the winner.

Options

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

Weekly Prize - Have a weekly prize for the top finisher each week.
