Start a New Pool

Start by selecting the category of pool you are interested in running, and then select the format:

Pro Football
(NFL)

NFL Survivor Pool
Our most popular Pro Football pool option! Players choose one NFL team each week that they believe will win. They may only pick a team ONCE per NFL season. 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.
NFL Pick 'em Pool
Players make weekly picks (either against the point spread or straight-up). The number of picks each week is customizable by the pool administrator. Your pool may be set up to utilize the standard point spreads available from this site OR you may enter your own points spreads each week. Weekly and year-to-date records are calculated.
NFL Confidence Pool
Players make weekly picks on every NFL game, assigning a point value from 16 down to 1 for each game. Picks are made "straight up", not using a point spread system. The winning player for each week is determined by totalling the point values assigned to correctly picked games. Weekly and year-to-date records are calculated.
NFL Credits Pool
All players start with the same number of credits (1000 by default, but can be changed). Players make picks each week by risking a certain number of credits on any/all games, assigning more credits to the picks with a higher confidence level. Members receive double the credits risked for each win. The member with the most credits at the end of the season wins.
NFL 33 Point Pool
Casual format where members are each assigned a unique NFL team (32 members max). Members win when their team scores 33 points. Options for changing target score, or having the closest to the target win each week.
Power Ranking Playoff Pool Post Season Only
Pool members rank all 12 NFL teams competing in the NFL Playoffs from strongest (12 points) to weakest (1 point). Picks are made only ONCE before any games begin. Members are awarded the number of points assigned to an NFL team when that team wins. Administrator's can configure their own progressive point system, by setting up a point multiplier for each playoff round.
Playoff Precision Pool Post Season Only
Pool members attempt to pick the winner of every playoff game each week along with combined total score. Points are awarded for correct picks AND for how close to the correct combined point total they were.
Squares Pool (Any NFL game, including the Super Bowl)
Also known as Grid pools, Box pools, or Block pools, this format is 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.

College Basketball
(March Madness)

Bracket Pool
This is the most popular NCAA Basketball pool. Players completely fill out the NCAA brackets, predicting the winner of every game. Points are awarded for every game picked correctly, with the winner having the most total points. You may set your own point value for each round of the tournament. This format can also be setup to run as a Sweet 16 pool, starting when just 16 teams remain in the tournament.
Survivor Pool
Pool members choose one NCAA team each day or round (configurable by the pool administrator). Each team can only be picked once throughout the tournament. If they win, you move on. If they lose, you are eliminated. Last man standing wins.
Pick X Pool
Pool Administrators set how many teams their members will pick. Players pick that many teams from the 64-team field for the entire tournament. Every time a chosen team wins, the player is awarded the number of points equivalent to the team's seed number.
Squares Pool
Claim your squares and get 63 chances to win! Similar to the popular Super Bowl squares format, the winning scores of each game are used to see which grid squares are winners.
