How to Play BetOnline’s $100,000 NFL Playoff Pick’em Contest

Contestants must make a selection, against the spread (ATS) and total, for every NFL Playoff game.  The odds are determined by the current odds available in the BetOnline Sportsbook.


Contest picks can only be made online. You cannot make picks via phone, chat or email.  Once a pick is made, the pick saves automatically with the odds available at the time of selection. 


Contestants may submit and/or change picks at any time until the specified start time of each game. At the specified start time, games are no longer available for selection and any picks involving that game cannot be changed.


If a contestant changes or removes a pick, they will only be able to re-pick that team with odds available at the time the team is re-selected.


Contestants cannot select the same side twice or select both sides of the same game on a single entry.  Contestants earn one (1) point for every correct pick and a half-point (0.5) for a push.  Contestants who do not submit selections will not receive points.


Every week, the contest will re-open no later than Tuesday afternoon. At this time, you will be able to make your selection(s) for the week’s upcoming games.


If a game is canceled and/or postponed, the game must be played by Tuesday of the following week in order to earn points in the contest standings.


The NFL Playoffs must be played in their entirety for this contest to be considered valid. If the playoffs are canceled at any point, the BetOnline NFL Playoff Pick’em contest will be canceled and all entry fees will be refunded.
