So last Saturday we had some fun with a live blog, part of which included an over/under + pick ‘em competition between myself, Cam Collingwood and Michael Benedicks from FHS, as well as FHS reader/poster Mjm44 (MasterofPuppets joined in part way through as well). You can check it all out here.
We ended up with a three-way tie going into the final game of the night, and I'm now your defending champion after correctly picking the Oilers to beat the Wings, where Cam and Mjm44 went with Detroit.
So after that excitement, we thought we'd expand things this week by inviting all readers to participate this Saturday. Details after the jump....The premise is simple:
1. submit your pick for the winning team for each game (H = home win, V = visitor win)
2. based on an over/under of 5.5 goals, submit your pick for over or under for each game (O = over, U = under)
The scoring system is easy: for every winner you pick correctly, you get 1 point. For every over/under you get right, you get 1 point. So with 12 games on Saturday's slate, a perfect score would be 24 points.
The winner of this Saturday's competition will be honored in Monday's Fantasy Stars of the Week post, so don't miss out on your chance for glory!
Here is Saturday's slate:
NAS @ BOS
FLA @ NJD
LAK @ NYI
NYR @ PHI
WPG @ PIT
EDM @ OTT
TBL @ BUF
MON @ TOR
COL @ STL
CBJ @ MIN
CHI @ PHX
VAN @ CAL
Please post your picks in the comments for this post, or if you'd rather they be kept private until Saturday, you can email them to lux130(at)hotmail.com. Not sure what kind of response we'll get, but to keep it simple, just copy and paste the above slate with your picks beside each game, like this:
NAS @ BOS (V/O)
FLA @ NJD (H/U)
Good luck to all - if there is enough continued interest, we may expand to actual prizes in the future. Cheers!
