Once again, back by popular demand, we proudly present the chance to prove whether your NFL instincts are spot on… or whether you should stay far, far away from gambling.
With all due respect to Jim Nantz, CBS and Augusta National, our annual over/under contest really has become a tradition unlike any other.
This year, we will be hosting this contest for the 12th time. It’s free to enter and the winner gets his or her name forever etched into SportsChump infamy, a lengthy list of Hall of Famers which includes myself and KP (the only two-time winners), BNRMoose, Hanahan, Ravenous, SpeedBeagle, Buck Fenson, SportsAttitudes and Ronbets.
The rules have not changed from years past.
Every season, Las Vegas releases its projected over/under totals for team wins. Your job is to select ten of those teams and assign them confidence points (ten being the most, one the least) based on whether you think they will achieve that win total. Be so kind as to list your predictions clearly in the comments section below. Remember, folks, there are 17 games once again this season.
You MUST get your picks in by kick-off of the first game, which is the evening of September 8. As always, include your tiebreaker with your picks, which is the total wins combined by all three Florida teams.
By looking at the numbers below, you’ll notice that all projections have been set to a half number, removing any possibility of pushes.
Don’t forget to check back for updates and to verify that I’ve entered your picks correctly. Until then, my courageous readers, happy football season!
