Take the pain out of managing your NFL pool

Tired of figuring wins and losses versus the point spread for your pool members? Tired of tracking your pool's weekly and year-to-date leaderboard manually, via paper or spreadsheets? Tired of keeping track of which pool members have already picked which teams in your survivor pool? It can take a lot of time and effort to run your own football pool ... even more to do a really good job at it.

Spend five minutes setting up your NFL pool, let your pool members know how to join and enter their picks online each week, and sit back and enjoy the NFL season. Our NFL pool hosting and management service is completely web-based, meaning no software to download and manage and no scores for you to enter every week. We do the hard work for you.

NFL Pool Formats

NFL Survivor Pools

Survive and advance!

Our most popular NFL Pool format! Also known as Suicide, Eliminator, Knockout, or Last Man Standing pools. Pool members choose one NFL team each week that they believe will win.

  • Each pool member chooses one NFL team each week.Picks are made 'straight up', not using a point spread system.
  • If their pick is correct, they survive until the next week.
  • An incorrect pick eliminates the player from the pool for the remainder of the season.
  • Lots of options including: elimination settings, mulligans, automatic pick assignment for missed picks, and more!

NFL Pick'em Pools

Create your Pick'em pool for the NFL Season

Add to the excitement with your own pool for your family, friends, or business promotion.

  • Each pool member picks every NFL game for the week (or the number of games you specify).
  • Picks can be made against the point spread or 'straight up' without it.
  • Standings are calculated for the week and for the year-to-date.
  • Options include number of games to pick each week, point spread usage, custom scoring for the post-season, automatic pick assignment for missed picks, and more!

NFL Fantasy Football Pools

Create new Fantasy lineups each week!

Enjoy the fun of being a Fantasy manager, without the complication of a draft and the limitations of a fixed roster.

  • Pool members pick NFL players every week to create their weekly lineup.
  • Entries accrue points in real-time based on the game statistics of the players in their lineup.
  • Pool Administrators can decide how many times per season NFL players can be picked by each member.
  • Standings are calculated for each week and for the year-to-date.

NFL Credits Pools

Risk credits (i.e. points) on teams you think will win each week

Members can pick any games using a weighted value we refer to as 'credits'. Members can risk as many or as few credits on any games. The person who ends up with the most credits at the end of the season wins.

  • All pool members start with the same number of credits (1000 by default, but can be changed).
  • Pool members make picks each week by risking a certain number of credits.
  • Members can pick as many (i.e. all) games or as few (i.e. zero) games as they would like.
  • Members will receive double the credits risked for each win.
  • The member with the most credits at the end of the season wins.

NFL Confidence Pools

Rank the teams you're most confident will win

Similar to our Pick'Em pools, but with a twist! Not only do you need to pick the right teams, you have to rank them. The winning player for each week is determined by totalling the point values assigned to correctly picked games.

  • Each pool member picks every NFL game for the week (not using the point spread).
  • Members must also rank how confident they are that the team they picked will win.
  • The more points assigned to a pick, the more confident they are that team will win. For each correct pick, members receive the number of points they assigned to that pick.
  • Standings are calculated for the week and for the year-to-date.

NFL Margin/Underdog Pools

A simple format, yet still requires strategy

Members pick one team a week and are rewarded with their margin of victory (or the point spread in an underdog pool).

  • Each member picks one team a week
  • In a margin pool, they are awarded points equal to the margin of victory if their team wins.
  • In an underdog pool, they can only pick underdogs and are awarded the point spread if their team wins.
  • Lots of pick and scoring options to choose from!

NFL Squares Pools

No pens. No paper. No copying machine required.

Also known as Grid pools, Box pools, or Block pools, this format is far-and-away the world's most popular Super Bowl game, but we offer it for ANY game ... or any set of games.

  • Pool members reserve "squares" online on a 10x10 grid by putting their name in the square. No need to pass around a sheet of paper!
  • Each row and column is assigned a number from 0 to 9 (usually randomly after all squares are taken by members).
  • Run a grid for any NFL game, including the playoffs and Super Bowl. A popular option is to run a grid for every Monday night game.
  • Options include: Multiple grids per pool, number assignment configuration, maximum pick counts, and more!

NFL 33 Pools

Keep a close eye on the scoreboard

A great format for members who don't want to make weekly picks but still want the excitement of following NFL games.

  • Each member is assigned their own NFL team
  • Members win each time their team scores 33 points.
