What's new with this year's contest?
We have made it easier for you to beat The Picker. No more point spreads. We are using a new system that makes us have to change the contest from what we have had in previous years. We hope that the changes will make it easier for everyone to play and have a shot of the weekly and grand prize.
Sorry, but you need to create a new account for this year’s contest. We are using a new system and were not able to move over the accounts used last season.
Each week, you pick the winner of each game. You also must enter the score of one of the games, which will act as a tiebreaker. This is how the tiebreaker works: A winner will be determined by a formula that includes the difference in the tiebreaker scores from each individual real team score. If there are still any ties, we will look at who had the best record in the previous week. If there is still a tie, we will pick a winner at random.
How can you win?
You still must beat The Picker like in years past. Each week, the person who beat The Picker by the most correct games picked wins the weekly contest. At the end of the year, we will see who has beat him by the most games and that person will win the grand prize.
