NFL Twenty Point Football Pools

Twenty Point Football is our newest option with 2018 being the first full season it's available. In this format you pick teams to win straight up, but the scoring each week is determined by the spread of the game you pick, so you earn more points for picking underdogs than you would picking favourites. If you pick incorrectly though, you don't get any points, so it's a constant struggle between picking up a 'safe' few points and chancing it for more points. If you're looking for something different this season, give it a try!

How to Play

  1. Entrants pick one team each week of the NFL season with the intention of the selection winning.
  2. If the team selected wins the entry earns 20 points plus the spread of that team (i.e. favoured by 3, earn 17 points; 3 point underdog, earn 23 points).
  3. If the team selected loses, ties or no pick is made the entry gets 0 points for the week.
  4. The entry with the most total points at the end of the season is the winner.

Options

Default Picks - Choose from several options to assign a pick to an entry that doesn't make a selection prior to the deadline.
20 Point Football Pools will be available on or before 2022/05/26 12:00pm.

That said, some pool managers are making other accommodations with their pools, and we're willing to work with them to do so. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out via the contact page.
