    Oh yeah, in the future you'll be able to redeem betpoints for your choice of aglets for the end of your shoelaces or turnips on the cusp of their expiration date. Staff is working behind the scenes to see if they can't get their turnip vendor to include a cocktail napkin with each order.

    Miami? They are easily a top 10 team.

    *Chi QB got some hype, mostly b/c their defense was bad. And they made an awful trade shipping LB R.Smith.
    *Min was incredibly lucky last year. The markets sniffed that out.
    *Det hasn't had this much optimism in a while. Campbell was on the hot-seat early last year. And do you believe in Goff?

    Did you bet this? Would guess odds significantly higher now.

    I think that's very fair and it also gives you a shot in case a big name gets hurt .

    Those who send points and make picks before week 1 starts( sep 7/8pm) will get priority treatment on winnings. So they will get paid 60% of the pot.

    ONLY winners will be paid and points will be split amongst winners.
    You see this is why this contest is great. The big name did get hurt. Rodgers is out. Contest closes today at 8pm est. I will update after that who is in and who is eligible for each pot.

    All eligible for the prize. 2250 points. I will throw in another 750 to bring that total up 3000 if there is only ONE winner.

    Otherwise 2250 can be shared amongst 1 or more winners.
    No winners no points.

    Good luck

    If you aren't refunding entries if nobody hits then the 5 current entrants are being paid 4:1 on a greater than 200:1 outcome. You may want to reconsider the following rule:

    Texans might end up busting a lot of people's cards. That division is garbo and HOU is only going to improve as the season progresses and Stroud gets a little seasoning.

    And we already knew people who put the Eagles on their list were dead on arrival.

    The one I'm concerned about most on my list is the Packers. I waffled between them and the Giants/Broncos as my tenth pick. Clearly the Donks were the way to go. At this point I think the Lions win the division but their edge isn't enormous and maybe the NFC North gets a wild card in there as well, who knows..
