Show Notes

We are so psyched that the NFL got itself organized and has shown that responsible behavior can limit the spread of COVID-19.

With that out of the way, here are the notes from our NFL Season Preview episode:

Whiskey of the Week

  • Our whiskey of the week is the Straight Bourbon Whiskey from 2Bar Spirits.

Other Contests

As we did last season, we’ll be testing our crowd’s predicting prowess in a couple open “supercontests”… We’ll take the crowd’s final aggregate score predictions for each game compared to the same consensus betting lines we use to calculate our scoring model and apply this “crowd wisdom” in a real-world scenario.

NFL Pickwatch (Paul)

  • Our crowd’s picks straight-up and ATS plugged into NFL Pickwatch to see how they stack up against all the other predictors and experts tracked by Pickwatch
  • Not using crowd picks for the supercontest because it would be way too complicated (involves wagering virtual PW “coins”)

MyBookie Super Contest (Chris)

  • We will use a secret formula/methodology to determine our crowd’s 5 “best picks” of each week to make picks in the MyBookie.ag super contest.
  • Here’s the rub: If the crowd cromes through and we end up in the money, we’ll be sharing the prize money with our overall winners. The more people we have, the better the crowd wisdom, so make sure to tell your friends!
