EJ’s Profootball Pickems is a pickem game with a twist. Anybody can guess who wins a game week to week, but by how much. Its not your typical point spread that each player has to overcome. The player chooses the spread.
Who wants to go against some number a bookie in Vegas made up? The spread in EJ’s Proofootball Pickems lets you decide, while you compete against each other. The game is not your typical office pool bet. Your going threw the regular season and the playoffs just like the NFL. What you do in the regular seasons puts you in position for the playoffs. Except here everyone makes the playoffs. Off course its easier to win the championship being in first place going into the 2nd season than in last place. However, everyone still has a shot to win no matter how bad you did in the regular season, its still possible to win it all in the playoffs because the points are magnified.
