Every week, predict the winner against the spread of each game listed on the pick sheet (My Picks).

All games will be assigned spreads taken from reputable lines makers every Wednesday morning. Where applicable, the spreads will be augmented by -0.5 points to avoid any pushes (e.g. -7 becomes -7.5; -4 becomes -4.5; etc). If there is no line on a particular game at that time, the game will become a 'Pick', where you simply predict the winner. This is the only spread that will not be augmented by -0.5 points.

The spreads are used to establish how much your picks need to win/lose by.

Example: If Team A is favoured by 7.5 (i.e. Team A -7.5) over Team B.

You're correct if you pick Team A and Team A wins by more than 7.5.

OR

You're correct if you pick Team B and Team B either wins or loses by less than 7.5 points.

Select one game each week as your Best Bet. That is, the pick you feel most confident about. You will be awarded 1 extra point for correct Best Bet picks.

The weekly winner will be determined by the participant with the highest weekly score. In the event of a tie, the weekly-tie-breaker will come into play, which will be settled by the participant who comes closest to predicting the week's final game's total score (over or under).

Final prizes will be awarded to the top 5 participant(s) with the highest cumulative score(s).

Please check the Pool's Prize Distribution for official prize amounts.

All picks must be in before their respective game times. You will not be able to make/change your pick on any game that has started.
