2018 Annual My Mountain Town Pick 5 Contest

2018 Annual My Mountain Town Pick 5 Contest was created by MyMountainTown

Welcome to our Annual Pick 5 contest, we hope you'll join us! Each week we try to guess who we think will not necessarily win, but beat the spreads on the games as chosen by supposed experts.
:football: :nfl: :td: :goldtrophy:


Here are the rules from last year :
1) Pick any 5 games each week. We play against the spread according to the following website. We use the "Opening Lines" which never change to keep it simple. www.covers.com/odds/football/nfl-spreads.aspx

2) You must make your choices before the games start. This doesn't mean before the first game of the week, but rather whatever games you pick (ie if picking the Thursday game, do it by Thursday night before kick-off, the Sunday games by 10:59am, 1:59pm, or 8:19pm, or whenever kick off is for each game, depending upon your time zone). The time is recorded on your post when submitted so don't wait too long. Once you post a pick, you are locked into that pick. No changes. Doesn't matter if your whole team comes down with the flu and they don't play, or the starting quarterback gets a hangnail.

3) If you forget to pick until after the games have started, you are out of luck. No pick = a loss so if you don't pick at all that will be 5 losses you receive for the week.

4) Post all picks on this thread. This is the official sheet. Please feel free to quote other participant's picks that you see in order to officially record them (editing to change picks is not allowed so this confirms the choices).

5) Each week we will record a score for each contestant, keeping track of correct/wins, incorrect/losses, and ties. Ties will not matter except in the case of a tie-breaker needed between 2 contestants after the final pick (which is the Superbowl). In other words, only correct picks matter.

For those new to picking games, here's an example.
The line is Cincinnati +3 @ Denver. If you pick Cincinnati, you are saying you think they will either win outright, or will lose but by less than 3 points. Basically, you add 3 points to Cincinnati's actual game score, then compare that to the final actual game score of the Broncos. So if the game ended with Cincinnati 17, Denver 21, you add 3 to the Cinti score, which gives you 20, but you lose because that doesn't beat the Broncos score of 21. If, however, the game ended with Cinti 19, Denver 20, then you'd win. If it ended Cincinnati 17, Denver 20, then you'd have a Tie.

If you see Pickum as the spread, it means that the game is essentially at even 50/50 odds - just pick who you think will win, doesn't matter what the final score is.

Make sense? Feel free to PM us or post on this thread with questions. Prize: $250 to the My Mountain Town advertiser(s) of your choice, paid in gift certificates.

Good luck!!

It's really hard to even try to practice playing the Pick 5 during pre-season because the teams aren't playing to win, they're playing to test players for roster spots. We'll ramp this up next week when the season begins!!! :yess:
