Like the feel of competition? Well then you've come to the right place! We here at Predictem.com are very festive when it comes to running sports betting contests that pit amateur handicapper vs. amateur handicapper.
Each season for almost every sport, one of our fabulous sportsbook sponsors steps up to sponsor a season long handicapping contest in which often times there are weekly or monthly winners and sometimes prizes offered at seasons end for those that finish in the top of the standings.
In the past we've run such contests as last man standing which contestants select a game each week of the NFL season that must cover the point spread otherwise they're eliminated, pick 5 against the spread each week in which as it's title implies, players select 5 games against the spread each week and have a running cumulative total that is added up and top winners at season's end are awarded prizes.
Other contests include bracket contests for the March Madness college basketball tournament, bowl season contests, NFL playoff contests and more.
Contests are always held in our sports betting forums in which it's free to register and partake in our contests. Note: Some contests do require a postup, which means that you must deposit x amount into your sports betting account and you're free to bet as you wish with it, however a deposit is necessary in order to enter.Please be sure to read the rules for each contest as they vary and often times simple requirements are necessary, such as submitting your account number to us ahead of time to reserve your spot in the contest and to allow for quick crediting should you win.
Prizes are usually funded sportsbook accounts in which the winners receive the prize in their sportsbook account and must roll the prize over 6-10x and can't w/d their prize for a minimum of 30 days.
Our contests are meant to be fun for our readers. Anybody bending the rules or playing with multiple entries from the same IP address can and will be banned from the contest and possibly the forum for life as we reserve the right to exclude anybody for any reason.
