    haha, I'm in a money pick'em league, and this is the 3rd year in existence...the first year, I won, easily. I made every pick by gut. Last year, I sat down and thought out every single pick -- came in 6th.

    15 in...Let's get to 20!

    If you spend more than 5 minutes a week on these picks, you're doing it wrong.


    Now if I'm putting $200 on a game I research the hell out of it before I lose.

    You make your picks every week and they have to be in 5 minutes before the first game ( which is usually the Thursday game) begins.

    Thanks Mick. Has anyone ever played in a Last man standing league? Those are fun as hell also. Pick one game per week (what u deem the most favorable) the first time u get a pick wrong you're out. What makes it fun are the Weekly upsets and u only have one shot to get it right. Been doing this for two years with buds for money. The pressure also makes it a good time when you get down to 3 or 4 guys left. No room for error. I propose we do one of those as well.

    Yeah we had one of these every year on the old CBMB. You only got to pick each team once though, so if you picked the Bears (for example) as your sure bet to win in week one, and they won and you stayed alive, you can't pick the Bears again in the season.

    Correction, you can make your picks whenever you want (could go through all 17 weeks right now if you wanted), and the deadline is 5 min before EACH game...So you don't have to make your Sunday picks before Thursday's game.

    Yep. I left that important nugget out by mistake. That's probably the biggest monkey wrench in the game, for all the right reasons.

    My bad.

    If you're not an idiot, you'll make your picks each week, but technically you could pick all 256 games before lunch time today. If you were an idiot.

    haha, right -- I only made the distinction b/c someone will undoubtedly go out of country and may not have internet access...so it's important to know they can make picks in advance...and I think the 5 min before kickoff thing is new this season. Seemed like the better option.

    Here is a basic format for a last man standing or survivor League. Its pretty cookie cutter and self explanatory but for those who may be interested and not familiar ...https://lastmanstanding.paddypower.com/?do=rules
