    Football handicapping challenge for the 2013 season

    Every year I run a pick 'em pool that is slightly different than the norm, and I thought I'd extend it to my fellow POers for the following season. Here's the system:

    - I post the NFL lines every Tuesday (so even if they move huge during the week, they stay at the original lines)
    - You pick FIVE games out of the schedule (doesn't matter which ones - this includes over/unders as well)
    - All picks must be submitted before the 1 PM games on Sunday (if you are taking the Thursday game, you have to submit that before kickoff but you don't have to pick the other 4 games yet).
    - Make ONE of them your stone cold lock of the century of the week
    - You hit your lock, it's 3 points, every other game is 1 point. Hit all 5, get a bonus 5 pts (12 is a perfect week)

    Most points for the season wins. Simple.

    So if anyone is interested in this, I'd be happy to run it (which means I wouldn't play), or we can get someone else to run it (whoever runs it should get a piece of the prize as payment) and I'll play. If you're interested, let me know, and let me know how many points you'd be willing to spend - I'd rather keep it on the cheaper side so we can get more participation. I think 1100 pts. would be perfect - 1000 to the pot, 100 each to the person who runs it.

    Hopefully we could get 50 people in this, and we'd have a pot of 50K points. I also wouldn't be opposed to have two tiers of people, one that pays a few hundred pts and the other tier wants to bet a few thousand.
