Weighted point system for playoff picks and bowl game picks

In order to recognize the importance of the playoff games, selecting the correct winner from those games is more heavily awarded when you tally your final score.

If you have a custom setup you’re after, reach out to us at and we can customize a point system for your pool.


  • Whoever picked the National Champion
  • Whoever picked the most correct semi final games

Pick Deadline

  1. Tyler Jarrard says:

    Would a better tie breaker be total points in the National Championship?

    I’d wager 90%+ of folks will be on Bama/Clemson this year.

    • Hi Tyler – Yeah that’s a good idea. We’ll have to make that upgrade for next year or ask your participants to include their guess at the end of their team name, like “Team Tyler (56 pts)” … not ideal, but the best we can do for this year’s pools. – Sean

  2. Jeff Boling says:

    We normally pick the Top 25 bowls and then have each person pick the winner and assign a point value form 1 – 25. If you pick the right team you get the points you assigned to that pick, if your team loses you get minus those points. This is done on each bowl and the total points are added up. You must assign a unique point value to each bowl (cant use 13 twice for example).

    Do you have a college football pool for all the bowl games that doesn’t have to be manually managed?
