Sorry we missed Week 11 guys. These updated standings reflect the results of Week 10. Sean had the best call with Vancouver over Colorado.
Each week, you get a chance to pick ONE result from any MLS game. It does not have to be the same game I pick. And points will be earned for each correct result and COULD be lost for a wrong pick. We will keep track of everyone participating and update standings in each weeks post.
If you pick a result with – odds, you are picking the favorite. You can only gain one point (whether it’s -100 or -300), but you will not lose any points if you are incorrect. If you pick a result with + odds, you are picking the underdog. In this scenario you get bonus points based on how big the underdog. But because you are swinging for the fences you can also lose points. Here is a brief rundown.
+100 odds, you get 2 points if they win, but lose 1 point if it loses
+200 odds, you get 3 points if they win, but lose 2 points if it loses
+300 odds, you get 4 points if they win, but lose 3 points if it loses
Hopefully that all makes sense. Feel free to ask questions if you are confused.
So I will list the odds for every game each week and you just need to submit the pick before kickoff the particular game you are playing that week. You can submit your picks by leaving a comment here or tweeting to @FireOnIceSoccer with the hashtag #pickem.
