Mike (Oct 11 '22): 1 point that is. And I will say, I was surprised to get 61 in this pool, expected less. If we get over 50 again for #2, then we'll do a top 2 per week and top 3 overall. Doesn't help me this time though :(
Mike (Oct 11 '22): Bah, I missed the overall by 1 spot!
Mike (Oct 10 '22): A lot riding on tonight's game. Both the weekly and overall. Don't forget to sign up for pool #2, Weeks 6-10.
Mike (Oct 7 '22): That game was terrible.
Mike (Oct 6 '22): Not liking either of these teams. Go Broncos!
Mike (Oct 4 '22): Since we are up to Week 5, I hope everyone continues on after this week in the Week 6-10 pool. Link in the commish message.
Mike (Oct 4 '22): groinpull with the Week 4 win on the tie-breaker by a point!
Mike (Sep 30 '22): Looks like I've fallen into my old Thursday night pick slump. Although Dolphins were right in it most of the game. Losing Tua caught up with them.
Mike (Sep 22 '22): Steelers to keep it close! Go Mitch.
Mike (Sep 21 '22): Updated the Week 3 point spreads and there were a few changes. For example, Philly looks a lot stronger after Monday. That added a couple points to their spread vs. Washington.
Mike (Sep 20 '22): My bad picking against the Bills.
Mike (Sep 19 '22): Drorz1 is on a heater. Already wrapped up Week 2.
Mike (Sep 13 '22): Nice job Drorz1 and mmhast1, 13 of 16 against the spread. I hope you made some bets with those picks. Drorz1 takes Week 1 on the tie-breaker.
Mike (Sep 9 '22): Great game last night!
Mike (Sep 8 '22): Yes, that is 100% correct.
football rookie (Sep 7 '22): Just to confirm the Thursday pick has to be selected by Thursday but we have until Sunday to lock in our other picks!?
Mike (Sep 6 '22): Done
Jokovich (Sep 6 '22): Hey Mike please update me as paid
Mike (Sep 6 '22): Sent you an email, bclion999.
bclion999 (Sep 5 '22): Hi Mike. My pool name is bclion999 and I somehow created a second entry, which I did not mean to do. If you could delete that, it would be appreciated. My original entry was paid via etransfer tonight (Sept. 5). I was also wondering if the pool segments (weeks 1-5, 6-10, etc.) are each $27 or whether the $27 fee covers the entire season segments. Thanks.
Mike (Sep 5 '22): Nice turnout in this one!
Mike (Aug 18 '22): Mike updated the pool

Important Points

Final Point Spread

The point spread for all games is considered final on Wednesday each week for the upcoming week's schedule. A preliminary point spread may be provided as a guide prior to Wednesday.

Weekly Pick Deadline

The final pick deadline for each round of the pool, all times Eastern, are as follows:

Week 1 Sun Sep 10, 2023 1:00 pm

In weeks with games scheduled earlier than the above deadlines, such as Thursday, Saturday or Sunday morning (international games), these games should be selected but picks must be submitted before kickoff of that game.

This deadline applies to all remaining games for the week, including late Sunday and Monday night games.

These deadlines will be strictly enforced! There will be no exceptions for picks not being submitted on time.
