SportsChump’s Third Annual NFL Futures ContestAugust 22nd, 2013 by Chris Humpherys
It’s that time of the year again, my friends. Preseason is underway, several key players have already been lost to injury and Tim Tebow continues to be ridiculed for his inability to throw a football.
That can only mean two things. Less than a month until football starts and, at long last, the third annual SportsChump over/under contest has finally arrived!!!
Everyone’s favorite contest of the year has met with rousing support in the past and promises to again in 2013, so put on your thinking caps, people, and pick me some winners.
The rules are the same as they’ve been in the past. An NFL future is how many wins, out of a 16-game season, Las Vegas thinks each team will tally. You are to choose over, or under, that number. Ties will go to the runner.
You must select TEN TEAMS from the list below and assign them confidence points, ten being the team you’re MOST confident about and one being the least, then list them in the comments section. You will be awarded those points if you correctly guess over or under for that particular team. It’s just that simple. For the tiebreaker, I need your projected win total for the three Florida teams: Tampa Bay, Jacksonville and Miami.
This year, I’m going to give you a head start by doing something for you other sports websites won’t. In addition to this year’s projected totals, below you will also find Las Vegas’ over/unders and actual win totals for 2011 and 2012 for you to use in making your selections. Just remember that history will teach us nothing.
Once again, this year’s contest winner will not only receive bragging rights and a fabulous prize pack (including the Library of Congress’ soon to be released Football Nation) but a seat next to Hanahan and Ravenous in the SportsChump NFL Pick ‘Em Hall of Fame.
All entries must be received by kick-off of the opening game September 5.
Best of luck.
