Proline Forum NFL Pick-6 Playoff Pool - Free to play

Welcome to our NFL playoff pool.  For the playoffs, unlike the regular season, I am going to offer a prize for 1st place only.  The winner of this pool will receive an NFL player jersey of his/her choosing.  Just like the regular season prizes, this is coming out of my own pocket so don't criticize the prizes, please.  lol. 

How it will work:

Each week (probably Thursday) I will post a thread with six Proline betting options for the upcoming weekend of NFL playoff action (ATS for games and prop picks to fill in the six).  Simply copy-and-paste the betting options into a new post within the thread and bold your selections.  Pick winners to accumulate points...most points after the Super Bowl wins the jersey.

Point structure:

I've worked hard on the point structure for this pool.  I've run several sample pools and the structure below is the one that will work best to keep the pool competetive until the end and also reward for really knowing your stuff.

Wild Card:
5 points for correct ATS picks (4)
3 points for correct prop picks (2)

Divisional:
5 points for correct ATS picks (4)
3 points for correct prop picks (2)

Conference:
10 points for correct ATS picks (2)
6 points for correct prop picks (4)

Super Bowl:
15 points for correct ATS pick (1)
8 points for correct prop picks (5)

General Rules:

  • Your picks must be in before the posted game-time.  Changes are, most certainly, allowed prior to kick-off...just post your changes in the weekly thread.  I see everything posted in there.  Changes will not be permitted for Super Bowl picks...once you post them they are locked in.  Best to wait as late as possible before posting your Super Bowl picks.  This rule is in place in order to prevent users from posting "reverse of the leader" picks in order to catch up.  It's not perfect, but it's a small safeguard.
  • In the event of a tie the tie-breaking procedure will be as follows: 1. W/L record for ATS picks (full playoffs) 2. W/L record for ATS pick (Super Bowl) 3. W/L record for ATS picks (conference finals)  If still tied after three rounds of tie-breaking, all tied players will win a jersey.
  • Because I am hand-selecting the events for this pick-6 contest, I will not be participating.  It's a bit different from the regular season contest and I feel I would have an advantage by being the person selecting a few props from a long list.
  • In the event of a tie in a prop event, no points will be awarded to anyone.

Best of luck, everyone.  No need to register, just post your picks in this thread for the Wild Card selections listed below.

BTW, I would like to see SDIproliner1 make his picks each week, even if he chooses not to count them. Nice for some friendly competition.

Well, if I did I sure wouldn`t be taking the Packers.  Garbage team, garbage stadium, garbage city, garbage franchise.




How about if I make my picks, include myself in the standings, but if (when) I end up in 1st place I`ll give the prize to 2nd place.

Great idea for a contest, and what better prize for a sports fan than an nfl jersey of their choice to hang as a trophy on the wall!

It certainly makes it easier for me if the copy-and-paste method is used.  It's not the end of the world is someone just types in their picks though.  I'll just manually enter the picks into my spreadsheet.

Why not post all the props SDI and have us pick between them? More room for people to lose points. I think it may be pretty log jammed at the end.... Who knows though! THANKS FOR THE FREE JERSEY!!!!! Lol jokin'
