31/60 correct picks is the lead so far. No point spread in this game. Just trying to pick winners and the league lead is 1 more than a coin flip.

Dont gamble on the NFL, kids.

That software is counting the 15 games this week (week 4) that haven’t been picked and settled yet.

It should read 31 of 45.

Its a programming thing. I will let the developer know. The logic should ignore unsettled games, IMO.

Congratulations @Allen2McVay and @SuperMan28 for getting 12 correct picks in week 4, as our top winners.

Our overall leader is @12intheBox with a whole big pile of players right at the top of our leaderboard a pick or two behind.

In Survivor, 16 players have been eliminated.

Week 5 is open for picks.

Is the Thursday game not available in pickem?

We keep Thursday games OUT of our pools.

It was general feedback about “missing picks“ due to fast turnaround to Thursday.

Sunday allows more time for everyone to get their picks in.

The only hiccup is late season survivor. If you survive late, you might not be able to grab a Thursday team in your bank. So there is a little strategy, late, with that.

Don’t want to jinx myself,but The Rams vs Bears at home 34-24 is the closest game I’ve picked each week.
Funny thing after I pick I don’t check.
There is a couple times I’ve thought I lost.Strategy is,never been this far without a lose,so just win.
