The way that this game works is similar to a pick 'em, except instead of just picking who is going to win every game it is your job to set the betting line for every game. At the end of each week it will be tallied how many points you were off for the actual score differential, and these points will be added together to find a cumulative total to see where you rank compared to everyone else. The less points you have, the better.


- You're still picking a team to win, if you pick Baltimore to win by 7 and they lose to Pittsburgh by 7, that's a 14 point difference to your score. You'd make your pick of Baltimore by seven like this: Baltimore (-7) @ Pittsburgh
- You have to pick every game out of the interest of fairness. If you ever miss or skip a game but want to continue in the competition then you're going to have to accept the same point differential as whoever was the most inaccurate in each individual game's prediction.
- You're free to pick with half points as well if you'd like, ie. (-2.5), (-6.5)
- I'm not going to have the time to judge all the entries myself, so for now we're going to say that each participant will have to self-score with a post showing proof of work on how they reached their point differential. If people are interested in co-moderating this with me then that would be welcome and we could potentially avoid self-scoring
