Never competed in an NFL Survivor Pool? Then you are missing out. It’s a great way for those who might not be exactly football-savvy to compete against people who perhaps bet the NFL on a regular basis and think they are know-it-alls ...
...That's because there’s no betting involved here, but you can still cash in. SBR top-rated sportsbook YouWager is offering a great deal right now for its Survivor Pool.
A Survivor Pool is simple: You pick one team to win each week but can select said, team, just one time the entire season. If your team loses that week, it means elimination from the contest. Most handicappers worry about point spreads or money lines when betting on the NFL. This has nothing to do with that. It’s a straight-up winner – although certainly, some in these competitions use the spreads as a basis for picking their winning team each week. By the more points a team is favored, the more likely it will be a popular Survivor Pool selection.
For example, the 2017 New York Jets are in full-blown tank mode, trying to earn the highest draft pick possible in 2018 and the possibility of the franchise quarterback they have been looking for since perhaps, Joe Namath. So ... you won’t want to be picking the Jets in any 2017 Survivor Pool weeks. That said, only one team in NFL history, the 2008 Detroit Lions, has finished 0-16. Thus, it’s not quite as simple as picking the team playing the Jets every week. History shows they are likely to win at least a couple of games.
The later into a Survivor Pool season one makes it, the tougher the selections to feel confident about are. The New England Patriots have been the NFL’s most dominant franchise this century, but you can only pick them once. Choose wisely. Ditto the Green Bay Packers or Seattle Seahawks or other consistent winning franchises in the NFL.
One Survivor Pool tip: pick home teams whenever possible. All other things being equal, playing at home is usually worth a field goal. All the team you pick needs to do is win. Ties are considered non-wins. Thus, a loss. Another tip: wait until the last possible minute (deadline usually noon ET on Sundays not including the Thursday night game) to make a choice. Last-minute injury news could be crucial.
The normal entry fee for Youwager’s Survivor Pool competition is $100 but under this promotion, it’s only $50 per entry. The last player standing wins the pot unless there are ties following Week 17, then it’s shared. Enter up to ten times to increase your odds on being the last man standing on the top of the Survivor Pool hill, with a pocket full of cash!
The 2017 NFL season begins Thursday night with Kansas City at New England but entry to this contest and the promotion are available until right before the first kickoffs Sunday. **This Survivor Pool Contest is Exclusive to new YouWager customers only**Join YouWager's $50 Survivor Pool RIGHT NOW!
