Playing our sports pick’em contest is super easy. Yes. Super. Easy. Below are some instructions and tips to make your time here much more enjoyable!
1. Click on the “Make my Picks” tab.
2. The current day’s questions/picks are listed. On any given day there will be 10-20 questions! We will do our best to use different sports as possible depending on that day’s lineup.
3. Each day’s questions have anywhere from 2-5 possible answers which you can choose from.
4. There are percentages listed next to all possible answers. This simply indicates what other participants have selected so far.
5. Each question has a specific start time and thus will “lock”. All times listed are based on CST (Central Standard Time). Obviously, you cannot make a selection once the question has locked.
6. Generally, all questions are worth 1 point, with a special “SWC Pick of the Day” that can count anywhere from 2-10 points. Of course these special questions will test your statistical skills, as well as luck.
7. Questions will be scored by SWC staff as soon as possible. Please be patient if the answers are not updated immediately.
8. If you get a question wrong, we will NOT penalize you. We are givers. We give points. We do not taketh away.
9. The leaderboard is located on the right hand navigation bar of each page. You can also check out the full leaderboard by clicking on the “Scores/Standings” tab.
10. You can see how many total points and your current rank on the right hand navigation bar.
11. It is very important to follow us on twitter (@saywhatcoach). Like us, we hate getting e-mails. Our twitter feed will let you know of special double and triple point days.
12. We are still in the infancy stages and are continuing to work with developers to make this a fun site to play.
Prizes: As we progress and fine tune the site, and hopefully gain some advertisers and sponsors, the prize pool will also grow. Prize money will always be posted. We play the other sports pick style sites and are always frustrated by the one in a million chance of winning anything. There will be opportunities to win special promotions that can run for a single day or week, so the chances of winning cash or prizes will be often!
We are not Vegas insiders or claim to know the over/unders for each question. We just want you to have fun with our unique style of selecting sports related props. You may even see some entertainment props or reality tv questions. If you have ideas, please feel free to share with us by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org! This is your site too…make it your own!
Every day, we will select between 10-20 matchups and prediction style questions regarding all types of sports going on that day. Want to guess at how many turnovers Jeremy Linn will commit? What about how many times Steve Spurrier will throw his visor during a football game? We are all about picking interesting questions to keep you guessing and also earning great prizes in the meantime. All you have to do is make your picks 5 minutes before each match up begins. Each question is worth so many points and all you have to do is accumulate as many during a certain time period.
