  • How about a Lounge NFL Pick em Contest?

    What do you say to a year long NFL 'Pick em contest'? Each week we pick our winners using the spread from Vegas. We could use the Sunday STL Post for the final lines.

    I'll volunteer to keep track. The winners get's Lounge Braggin Rights. Since I'm putting this out kind of late I'll use the highest winning % to determine the winner but you have start by next week to qualify.

    I'll go first - you can cut and paste the list into your post, put your pick in parentheses to the right;

    I'll start a thread with the lines each week if enough people are interested.

      You're being fucking dramatic. You own a TV and an air mattress. That's not exactly what I'd call "a lot to lose."

              What little grey matter I have is spent after Saturday. Plus, I think picking pros against a line is the hardest thing to pick in sports betting.

                    I would agree. The challenge will be fun.

                        Ok. I created a group.

                        It's the Sports Cartel

                        Password is lounge.

                        Its seems it will accomodate as many people as we want to have join.

                        Go there next week. This week post here.

                        Link to Pick Em Page

                        You will need to create a login for the ESPN site first if you don't already have one.

                          That's right. The Pick Em site at ESPN seems to only support straight up and the spread.
