What kind of pool do you want to run?
Description of How We Do Pickem PoolsWe host a wide variety of free pools; including regular season nfl pools or college regular season pools, bowl game pools, regular season and bowl games in 1 pool, hybrid pools with a mixture of nfl and college games. You have a choice of including Thursday night games or not. We've found that some people don't like to include Thursday night football games, so, we offer pools with Friday through Monday games only.
Survivor PoolsWe offer free survivor pools. You have a choice of including Thursday night games or not. You can also start after week 1, just in case you forget or have a bad first week.
Football Office Pool Scoring MethodsThere are many scoring method options to choose from, depending on the pool. There's the standard 1 point per correct pick method, as well as the standard Against-The-Spread (ATS) method, but, we use half-point spreads, to avoid confusion. Picks sheets with Against-The-Spread (ATS) scoring methods show the spread for the home team. The home team is favored, if it's a negative number. The home team is the underdog, if it's a positive number.
Depending on the football office pool, additional scoring methods include; confidence ranking, confidence ranking ATS, confidence ranking - losses count negative, and other combinations with losses count negative.
College Pickem Pool MethodologyFor our Top 25 pools, we use the weekly AP Poll until the College Football Playoff committee poll is released in week 8. The BCS Poll is used for the remainder of the season as the primary poll for our Top 25 pickem pools. We try to target 18 to 22 games per week in our Top 25 pools. On occasion, there aren't that many games (~16 or so), so, to have a minimum of 18 games, we'll look to other secondary polls, like the Coaches poll or ESPN's Top 25 poll or even USA Today's poll to add teams that are in secondary polls, but, not in the primary poll. That typically only happens once or twice a season, or unless a highly touted team is under sanctions.
College Bowl Pool DescriptionSome people don't like to pick all 40+ bowl games, so, we offer pools with different quantities of bowl games. Bowls that start after Christmas or only ones that start in the New Year. Again, for bowl game spreads, we use half-point spreads, to avoid confusion.
