How Do I "Submit" My Picks?

Submit picks by clicking the "Save Picks" button, on the "make picks" page. "Submitting picks" is the same as "saving picks." When you click "Save Picks" - your picks are automatically submitted.

 

Why Am I Not Showing On the Leader Board?

The leader board only shows the top 500 scores. It sorts by score (highest score on top), then by tie breaker difference (smallest difference on top) (tie breaker difference only shows after the last game, when the actual tie breaker score has been put in the system), then "picks last modified time" (earliest on top), then screen name.

If you don't have at least as many points as the last person on the leader board, then your score will not show on the leader board. Or if you do have the same number of points as the last person on the leader board, then your bracket was submitted later than the last person. So, your score will not show on the leader board.

If your leader board has a filter on the last column, like "favorite location," that filter pulls from the top 500 who are on the leader board. So, if you are not in the top 500 you will not show on the leader board, not even for your favorite location.

 

I Am A Winner, Now What?

Please consult the official rules for guidance on winner notification. If you won for a particular location, in a larger pool, please contact that location.

 

Pickem Tie Breaker Explanation

  • Each week pick the total cumulative points you think will be scored during the last game.
  • If you don't submit a tie-breaker guess, the system will assign you a guess of zero points.
  • The system will track the difference between your guess & the outcome of the designated game.
  • Your tie breaker point differences for each week will be added together throughout the season.
  • The entrant with the lower tie-breaker point difference will be used to break any ties at the end of the contest.
