The Turkey Week Twenty

Unread postby swerb » Mon Nov 19, 2012 11:11 am

Fun pool I run every year for Thanksgiving week. Very simple. Below list has the 20 biggest college and pro football games of the week from Thursday to Sunday. Pick them all against the point spread.

For the interest of getting this out, I had to estimate on the lines of a couple games (Fla/Fla St, Notre Dame/USC, Browns/Steelers) where we likely won't see an opening line until tonight. What I have below is what we'll use regardless of line movement. I used half points to avoid pushes.

$50 to play. 100% payout, 75% to 1st place, 25% to second place. Tiebreaker (make sure to include it) is the total points in the Ohio State/Michigan game.

Picks are due to me by Wednesday at midnight, no exceptions. I will send out a spreadsheet to all players with everyones picks on Thanksgiving morning so everyone can follow along. Payment by Pay Pal to richswerb@gmail.com works best.
