The 2017 NFL Football season is just days away and therefore so is the next edition of our exclusive free football pool. ‘Beat the House’ is officially open and we are ready to receive your NFL picks and 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 some prizes.
Each week throughout the 2017 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.
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.
