Play Money Pool Rules

  1. Each week of the NFL season, you get $100 in "play money" to wager on the point spread of any NFL game or combination of games for that week. You can bet as much as you have accumulated at that point in the season. The minimum bet each week is $100. Standard Vegas rules apply - if a team you pick beats the spread, the wager is added to your balance; if you lose the wager is subtracted from your balance. If you "push", or tie the spread, your balance is not affected.
  2. PLUS 6 RULE: You can win double the amount of your wager by adding 6 to the point spread in the direction that decreases your odds of winning the bet. For example, if Denver is a 5 point favorite over Seattle, and Ryan bets $100 +6 on Seattle, and Seattle wins by 2 or more, Ryan would win $200. If Ryan takes Denver for $100 +6, Denver would have to win by 12 or more to double his bet. If Ryan's team doesn't cover the adjusted spread, he only loses his original bet of $100. Any loss due to a +6 does not count toward a losing streak.
  3. Each week you select one tie-breaker game by guessing the total points scored in the game. This is used to break ties during the week for any weekly prizes. A running total is also kept of your tie-breakers. A prize can be established for the player with the lowest aggregate tie-breaker differential at the end of the season.
  4. You must have your picks in by the deadline established by the league manager. After you submit your picks, you can edit them provided 1) the deadline has not past, 2) the grace period as set up by the league manager has not elapsed, 3) a game has not started that you already bet on. You can only have one set of picks each week; that is, you can't bet on the Thursday game, then later submit picks for the weekend games.
  5. If you fail to get your picks in by the deadline, you will lose the $100 for the week, 15 points will be added to your tie-breaker total, and 10 will be subtracted from your Strength-of-Victory total.
  6. The official line is provided by bookmaker.eu (this is subject to change). For information on the spread (line), see this article
