Re: WF NFL /NCAA Pick 'em and NFL Survivor
In the Pick em league you just pick the winners of games. But there is a point spread to factor in. For instance say the Packers (at home) are playing the Titans. Instead of just saying PACKERS WIN which is the smart bet, there is a certain number of points the Packers must win by. Usually this is expressed as Titans +10 or Packers -10. Either way, if you pick the Packers they have to win by 11. You have to beat the point spread. If the Packers only win by 9 or less, you'd lose. If the Packers win by exactly 10, it's a push and neither win nor lose. There are also half points, like Packers -5.5. Green Bay would then need to win by 6 for you to get the pick right.
Make sense at all?
And then there is Survivor. This one is much simpler. You pick a team to win each week. You last as long as you pick winners, since the first time you lose...you're OUT. Also, you can't pick the same team to win more than one time.
