    What It Is

    Challenge you and your friends' knowledge of college football. See who can correctly pick the most BIG TEN games each week.

    Pick games of the BIG TEN teams each week. Accrue points based on the outcome of each game.

     

    The object of the game is to get the most points each week and for the entire season.

     

    • Well before the BIG TEN season starts, we'll put in all of the games for the entire season.
    • You and your buddies make your predictions each week.
    • We enter the game scores and calculate everyone's pool standings.
    • You and your buddies check the site to see how you did.

     

    We have 8 different scoring options to choose from.
    Straight Pick em
    » 1 point for each correct pick
     
    Ranked Pick em
    » For each correct pick, users will receive the number of points equal to the confidence rank that they entered for that game.
    » The goal is to score the most points, which may not equate to the most wins
    » The "catch" is that ranking numbers can only be used once
    • Put high points on your most confident pick
    • Put low points on your least confident pick

     
    Pick em Against The Spread (ATS)
    » All games are picked against half-point spreads
    » 1 point for each correct pick
    » How it works: Picking Against the Spread
    • Picking against the spread is where you try to determine which team will cover the spread; not necessarily which team will win.
    • While certain teams will win their game, they will not “cover the spread”, and thus if the team is selected it will count as a loss.
    • Example
      • The home team is favored by 16.5 points (-16.5)
      • The home team beats their opponent by 8 points (31 to 23), but, the home team's spread was (-16.5), so, when picking against the spread, the home team's score was 14.5 (31 minus 16.5), which is less than their opponent's score of 23.
      • This means anyone who picked the home team to win by 16.5 points or more was incorrect, since they only won by 8 points
