    6 NFL Teams to Not Make the Playoffs: 100 point contest

    Another forum has a thread on this, and it seems like it would make for a good gambling contest.

    Pick 6 NFL teams to miss the playoffs and send 100 points to this post. If all 6 of your teams miss out, you split the prize pool with anyone else who picks correctly. If one of your teams makes the playoffs, you're out unless nobody picks 6 teams correctly, in which case everybody gets a refund. Beware, picking all 6 is much tougher than it seems. I'll pay out as soon as the regular season ends. No editing picks posts. GL!

    If SBR or any mods want to adopt it they are more than welcome... especially if they give the contest some sort of overlay.

    That would be a really bad strategy because if you win you're chopping up the prize pool with a bunch of other people... that's why I picked Denver over some teams with longer odds.

    I'm glad to see the picks coming in, but remember to send 100 points to the OP to qualify. I'll pay out at the end of the regular season.

    2 paid entries so far with 2 more pledged once they get the points.

    This should be a fun contest. Join in.

    600 points are in the prize pool. The cutoff for entries will be kickoff of tonight's game. If people want to enter, but don't have the points they can make their picks itt before kickoff and I'll give them until Sunday at 1 to get their points in.

    If you think you're sharp (or square for that matter) send 100 points and jump on in.

    This was a cool idea.

    Good Luck everyone.

    I would consider hopping in if it opens up again or another one starts.

    This is going to be interesting. Jags and texans will be picking 1 and 2 in the draft next year.

    The bad teams have been awful this year. Burrow could bury a lot of us with the Bengals, though... still a lot of season left.

    Definitely the leader in the clubhouse. None of these teams will win their division. Minnesota seems to be the only team that has a chance to make a wild card.

    Bengals, Eagles, nor Vikings would be in the playoffs today. So Machba is still the ONLY entrant who would be the leader in the clubhouse if the season ended today. Bengals would get a lot of us if they make the playoffs.

    All but 2 of us are in good shape now, but it the Bengals, Eagles, Broncos, Dolphins or Panthers going on a run could change everything.

    I'm surprised at how many of us are doing well... normally there are more surprise teams.

    With 1 week to go Machba has already clinched an 800 point victory. Congrats. I'm going to wait a few days to pay out just in case my grading is wrong. I hope posters had fun with this contest. Maybe next year we could do something like this on a larger scale. Thanks for playing, everyone.


    Me: OUT with Bengals, Eagles
    Packer Backer: OUT with Bengals
    Machba: WINNER
    Otters27: OUT with Packers, Patriots
    rickie65: OUT with Bengals
    Champ2399: OUT with Cardinals, Cowboys, maybe Raiders

    Machba looked like the winner before the midway point. He picked teams that wonít even finish with winning records let alone winning a division or making the playoffs. Great picks. It is much harder than it looks. Cincinnati burned most of us and they went from worst to first. So it wasnít a bad pick. If any of the other AFC North teams play just at expectations the Bengals donít make the playoffs.
