How does the Out Pick The Picker Contest work?


Each week starting on Mondays at noon, pick 12 games and for one of the games guess the score. The games include those in college and the NFL.


When is the deadline to enter my picks?


You can pick the games up until 11:59 p.m. each Wednesday. 


What if I don't pick a game? 


If you don't pick the computer will pick the most picked game for you.


Is there a grand prize?


The person with the best record wins an Albert G’s BBQ feast valued at $700, which is good for dinner for up to 20 people. You have to be at least 21 years old to claim the prize.


If the contest has already started can I still play?


Only if you enter that week by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday.


How does the scoring work?


Each game is worth 1 point.


How are ties broken?


For an individual week: Participants must enter the score of the tie-breaker game each week. The computer then takes all the participants tied and then checks to see if they got the tie-breaker question correct. If there are still ties the computer orders the participants randomly.


For the overall winner: Participants must enter the score of the tie-breaker game each week. The computer then takes all the participants tied and then checks to see if they got the tie-breaker question correct. If there are still ties the computer orders the participants randomly.

How do Private Groups work?


Private Groups are a way for you to play along with a group of co-workers, friends, family, etc. Once you are logged in, in the upper left is a link to "My Private Groups." If you click on that you can see that you can join up to three private groups and create/manage one as well. A private group can have up to 50 people in it.


How do I join a Private Group?


Someone must first invite you to join their Private Group. If they do you'll receive an email with the instructions on how to join.


How do I create a Private Group?


Once you are logged in, in the upper left click on the "My Private Groups" link. Toward the bottom click on a link that says "Create a Private Group." You'll be asked to enter a group name, a password, and to confirm your password. The next page allows you to enter the email addresses for friends, co-workers, family, etc. that you'd like to play along with you. An email will be sent out with instructions on how to join your group.


How do I manage a Private Group?


Assuming you are logged in and you've already created a Private Group, in the upper left click on the "My Private Groups" link. Then click on the group you've created toward the bottom of the page. This will take you to the homepage that shows the scores for everyone in your group along with "Trash Talk." Trash Talk is a message board where you can post messages that only members in your group can see. Along the top of the page are links to "Email the Group," "Change Password," "Invite Members," and "Remove Members." In order, these links allow you to send a quick email to everyone in your group, change your group password, invite new people to join your group, and to remove members from your group (or to add them back).
