Some contests may require an entry fee while others will be free to enter, (regardless of weeks played). All entry fee dollars go directly to the overall winner or winners prizes. ManCaveStyle does not take any profit from running the MCS Pickem’ pool. Prizes – (Varies depending on pool size)
Overall winners in the season pickem contest (top 3 overall records) split the pool pot 60%, 25%, 15% less transfer fees. If there are 100 people in the pool, the overall pot would be approximately $2,500 @ $25 per entry. All payouts occur at the end of the pool season in January (all entry fees must be received before winners will be paid). Pick Sheet
Each week an online pool sheet will be made available on the ManCaveStyle Web Site. Each sheet will consist of a full slate of football (NFL/NCAA) games. Duration
The MCS Pickem’ pool will start during the first week of the NFL season and runs through the final week of the NFL regular season. Selections
Selections are made using the online pool sheet prior to weekly or early game deadlines. Select the winner of each game straight up. Submission Deadlines
Each week’s submission week deadline will be set to five minutes prior to the kickoff of the first game on Sunday of the current week. After the week deadline has passed all picks will be locked and pool sheets will not be able to be submitted. However, several weeks will have early games on Thursday and/or Friday. Early games will have their own game deadline which allows participants to pick the early game(s) without having to make their remaining pool selections until the week deadline on Saturday. If you miss a week, you will receive the same record as the worst record of all submitted sheets. Winners
In some contests there will be a weekly prize, the participant who picks the most correct games for the current week wins the weekly prize (weekly prizes will be an item from the MCS website). Each participants’ weekly record is added to their season record. The top three overall records at the end of the season win the overall grand prizes. Tiebreakers
Currently weekly ties are broken by total points scored in the week’s total games, as well as picking the highest scoring team that played. Overall ties result in an even split of the total prize money of the positions that are tied for. For instance, if three people tie for first place they split the total prize for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
