Tennis Major Championship Office Pool

Objective

The objective of this pool is to pick a team of tennis players that you believe will collectively win the most prize money during a single tournament.

This pool is great for the major tournaments, including the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon, and the U.S. Open, but also works for any ATP tennis tournament for which you can easily determine the final prize money breakouts.

Scoring

  • Calculate your team earnings by adding all of your individual players earnings for the tournament.
  • The team with the most team earnings at the end of the tournament wins.
  • See the image below for the 2015 Wimbledon payouts in Euros:

Picking Teams

  • Pick 3 players from the top 6 favorites, based on betting odds
  • Pick 4 players from betting odds 7-32
  • Pick 3 players from betting odds below 32 

This format was formulated in June 2015 when there was good competition within the top 5 players, although the top 3 had really dominated. The “pick 3 from top 6” option can be modified to achieve a good mix of different team selections. 

The Odds

There are many online sites where you can get current odds. Here is one we use:

The odds do change leading up to the tournament, so waiting until the official draw is posted is the best way to know that all the players listed in the odds sheets are actually playing in the tournament.

The Draw

Draws are typically posted shortly before the tournament begins. If you want to get your pool started early (that is, before the official draws are posted), you can visit any odds making website and organize your picksheets using current odds to win the tournament.

The official draw for Wimbledon will be available on Friday, June 26, 2015. Here is a link:
