You can only enter the contest one time. Anybody trying to enter and or play more than once will have all of their entries disqualified.
In the event of a tie what will determine the winner?

- Closest to Monday Night HOME TEAM SCORE *

Once your selection has been entered you have 15 minutes to remove it. Once it has been locked in, it can't be changed.
What happens if I only like 4 games that week? Must I play seven total games a week?
You don't have to play all seven games, but you don't lose points for a losing selection, so it will be in your best interest to pick all seven games plus the tie breaker.
There are also places in the Playoffs for best ATS percentage after a minimum number of selections have been reached so playing fewer games may help in that area.
