We are excited to launch the 2nd Annual BGO "Crystal Ball" Pool. A season ago, Boone hoisted the Crystal Ball trophy - can you dethrone him in the upcoming season? Do you think you got what it takes to predict what 14 teams will make the playoffs, and who will advance through the playoffs and hoist the Lombardi? If so, this very challenging contest is just the one for you! By joining this BGO contest, as well as our other great games (BGO Ballers Fantasy Football, BGO Pick'Em) you have a chance to become our grand slam champion and earn the ULTIMATE bragging rights!

Need even more incentive to play? Great prizes will be awarded to our top 2 competitors! Who is in?!

"Crystal Ball" Pool Rules:

1. Make your predictions for which 7 teams will advance to the NFL Playoffs from each conference (NFC and AFC).
2. Identify your four division winners (East, North, South, West) and three Wild Card teams from each conference.
3. Rank the playoff teams from each conference in the order you think they will finish (#1 through to #7).
4. Set up your playoff bracket accordingly and pick the winners for the Wild Card Weekend games, Divisional Round games, Conference Championships, and Super Bowl.
5. Be sure to fill out your tiebreakers in the event of a tie at the end of the contest between multiple participants.
6. Due date for entries into the pool will be September 7th, 2022 (the day before the start of the NFL regular season).

BGO "Crystal Ball" Pool Scoring System:

Points will be awarded in a variety of ways throughout the pool. Here is the breakdown for earning points:

a. Earn 2 points for every team you correctly identify to make the playoffs from each conference.
b. Earn 3 points for every division winner and wild card team you correctly identify from each conference.
c. Earn 4 points for every team that you slot into the correct seed from each conference.
d. Earn 5 points for every Super Wild Card Weekend winner you identify from each conference.
e. Earn 6 points for every Divisional Playoff Game winner you identify from each conference.
f. Earn 7 points for each Conference Championship winner you identify.
g. Earn 10 points for correctly identifying the Super Bowl winner.

PLEASE NOTE/IMPORTANT: We will keep track of each participant's picks in this running thread. You will simply need to post all your picks in a reply to this thread by September 7th. I am kindly asking that you copy the empty template I have placed below and fill it out accordingly when making your "Crystal Ball" picks and replying to the thread. It will make point tracking a heck of a lot easier for me come the end of the season! 🤪 It will also ensure everything is easy to read and follow (hopefully) if we want to compare picks down the road as the season plays out.

Good luck to all participants!
