    This thread is for those who want to play NFL Underdog.

    GOAL
    Each week, members choose four games in which they think the underdog will win.

    SCORING
    For any successful underdog pick, the winner receives the spread amount plus the points in which their underdog wins. For example, the Titans are 5.5 point underdogs and win by 3. That would total 8.5 points.

    RULES
    The season runs for 11 weeks. The official line for the week from Yahoo! will be posted on Wednesday. Even if the line changes between then and Sunday, those posted on Wednesday are the ones to be used. If the line is off on Wednesday, that game won't be added even if odds go up after. Those who want to participate must make their pick by 8 am cdt by each Sunday at which time the thread is locked until after Monday night's game.

    PRIZES
    $200 moolah will be awarded to the weekly winner. $1000 goes to the season winner, $750 for second and $500 for third. In the event of a tie, the moolah is split between winners.

    WEEKLY WINNERS
    10/21-22: Everyone tied with 4 points.
    10/28-29: JCBRAVE, SawdustMan & Titans Eternal with 38.5 each.
