Mike (Oct 12): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Oct 12): Wow, who stayed up for that wild game last night? I did not. ftbguru edges out Clemwad on that last game to take 1st overall in our 5-week pick'em. Congrats! Clean slate time, on to #2.
Mike (Oct 11): jeremywww has wrapped up Week 5 before MNF
Mike (Oct 10): Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving weekend! Early game today, I'm going Jets for the win
Mike (Oct 8): Clemwad with a big 3 point lead in the overall going into the final Sunday.
Mike (Oct 6): Last week for Part 1 of our point spread pick'em. Make sure to join Part 2. Would hate to lose any of you
Mike (Oct 4): Better week for me but still out of the running to win the week. Looks like if the Chargers win and cover, we are going to have a lot of entries tied at 10. Or if LV keeps it within 3 points then we have a three-way tie. So either way the total points in the game will decide it.
Mike (Sep 30): 7.5 is tough but I'm going with the Bengals
Mike (Sep 29): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Sep 29): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Sep 29): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Sep 29): I'm doing terrible to start the season, but on to Week 4. Point spreads are now final. A few sizeable changes from the initial spreads I put in Monday. KC-PHI, TB-NE, and ARI-LAR were the big movers, so give those a second look if you put your picks in early.
Mike (Sep 27): Looks like ffbguru locked up Week 3 before MNF.
Mike (Sep 23): Congrats to Rompapalle who won Week 2 with 12 right. We currently have a four-way tie for 1st overall at 19 correct.
Mike (Sep 20): Yep, sorry about that. The score for LV is missing from the stats provider. Fixed now.
TheDBH (Sep 19): Looks like the LV/PiT results are backwards
Mike (Sep 15): Lines are final for Week 2. Make sure to pay close attention to the Giants-Redskins game. The line switched from -2.5 to -3.5.
Spider (Sep 14): Awesome Mike and thank you! Good to get out a weekly win early so the rest is a bonus! Appreciate you running this as always.
Mike (Sep 14): Our prize pool is 42 entries * $25 or $1,050. Weekly prize is 12% or $126. 1st overall $262.50 and 2nd overall $157.50.
Mike (Sep 14): Okay, we have 42 paid. Remember, this is a 5-week competition for the overall. Then we'll reboot for Weeks 6-10, and 11-15.
Mike (Sep 14): Ha ha. Yes you needed to stay up for that one. Congrats!
Spider (Sep 14): I sure did!! Crazy but awesome result lol.
Mike (Sep 13): I hope everyone stayed up for that one, because that was a crazy game, crazy finish!
Mike (Sep 12): Usually updated automatically after games are final, but need to check with the stats provider why it isn't working Week 1. Probably have a date wrong. I'm going to update in a minute here.
Data Chick (Sep 12): Just wondering when the results get posted. Thanks
