Football Custom Margin Pool

Football Custom Margin Details

In Football Custom Margin Pools members sset their own margin for each game. You set the base number of points each correct pick is worth and for every correct selection, members get the base number of points plus the margin they place on the game. To illustrate, if Denver is playing Seattle and you pick Seattle to win by 7 points, they must win by 7 or more in order for you to get your selection correct. If they win by 7 or more, you get 7 points plus the base points set for each correct. If they win by less than 7 or lose, you get 0 points.

SimplySportsWare releases the margins every Tuesday that you can use as a reference. You can choose to include pre-season and/or post-season weeks and you can also customize your picksheet each week and include a mix of Pro & College Games. The hosting fee starts at $19.95 which includes the first 10 members.
