The 2016 NFL Football season is just two weeks away and therefore the next edition of our exclusive free football pool, ‘Beat the House’ is officially open and we are ready to receive your predictions. If you are a seasoned veteran of Beat the House, feel free to jump right in. If you are a rookie, and even if you are not a rookie, read on to see how your football knowledge can win you a big-ass cooler filled with swag, gear and movies.
Each week throughout the 2016 NFL season, our in-house football experts will make their collective picks. To enter the contest, you simply do the same and keep doing it for all 17 weeks. The ultimate goal is to be in the top ten in total picks at the end of the regular season, which will guarantee you a spot in the Beat the House playoffs.
In addition to the top ten, six wild card playoff spots are available. They will be awarded for various, randomly announced achievements throughout the regular season. Two Wildcard playoff spots are reserved for the top two members who have liked the Beat the House Facebook Page but are not in the top 10… so you can make the playoffs even if you are not in the top ten.
The Beat the House Playoffs will coincide with the NFL Playoffs. Playoff contestants will be asked to predict the playoff results along with various tie-breakers. Each round the playoff field will be cut in half until the final two members remaining will be asked to pick the Super Bowl winner, score and other related outcomes. The ultimate Beat the House tiebreaker will be overall correct picks on the season.
The last man or woman standing at the end of the 2016 edition of Beat the House will receive a YETI Tundra 45 cooler. This is an insanely-durable 45 quart cooler that will come filled to the rim with Yeti and TMRZoo swag as well as other gear and prizes, such as movies, that we collect throughout the NFL Season.
The “Final Four” contestants in our playoffs, which will be after the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, will each receive a special prize pack of which we are finalizing the details now.
All weekly and random prizes will be announced at the time they are eligible to be won. The requirements for winning one of these prizes will be announced at the time as well. It is best to “like” the Beat the House Facebook Page for special prize eligibility updates and reminders to get your weekly picks in.
