    Rules:
    • One pick per week
    • Your chosen team must be at least a (+3) underdog (Only games listed in this column are eligible)
    • Your chosen team must win the game outright (no 'pushes' or 'covers')
    • Season winner is the one with the most upsets correctly chosen between Week #1 through the Conference Championship Games (20 weeks all together)
    • There will be a points system to determine a winner in the event of a tie
    • Points will be accumulated by adding the game spreads for your correct picks (if you take Carolina (+4.5) and Carolina wins, you will be awarded a win and 4.5 points). Be careful making picks based on the number of points possible. Points only count if you are tied for the total wins lead when the whole contest is finished.
    • The No Upsets Option: Predict correctly that 'No Upsets' will occur in any given week and you will be awarded one win and a point total equal to the sum of all the spreads in that week's Upset Special. If you wish to exercise the 'No Upsets' Option, that prediction is due by 5 minutes prior to kickoff of the first game of the week in question. This includes Thursday Night Football or Saturday games. The 'No Upsets' option is confined to the Upset Possibilities listed in this article.
    • Picks are due no later than 5 minutes before the scheduled start of the broadcast time for your game. The FootballPros.com time stamp on your post is gospel.
    • Spread lines, once posted, will remain static throughout the week. This isn't The Sports Book at Caesar's Palace, after all.
    Let's. Get it. ON!!

      I'm assuming we're locked since you've posted, but I'm seeing Colts (+10) on pinnacle.com and (+9) on vegasinsider.com as well as (+9) on the official Delaware Sports Lottery sheet.

      If we can add it, my suggestion is for EVERYONE to jump on the Colts. I would, but it's a rule for me to not go against Pittsburgh...

      Browns because they're as big a joke this year as my picks!

      The Browns are going to stumble upon a win at some point. So why not pick them this week. Gimme the Browns

      Biggie picked Tampa and they won, so he should still be in the lead.

      Wow. I totally missed that. It's only written in the freakin' article.

      Top Two are Biggie at 7.355 and Brian at 6.295. Good looking out.

      Good lookin' out, indeed.

      There is still time to jump on the Pack tonight.

      You know, if you are feeling brave.

      Let's see who's in 10th place...

      Look out Rags, I'm comin' for you. By the end of the year, I'll be back in familiar territory toward the bottom of this list.
