The object of Yahoo! Sports Pro Football Pick'em is to accumulate as many points as possible by correctly picking the winning team in each of the games played during the season.
Each of your wins will count as one point in a basic group, or multiple points if your group uses confidence points. Weekly points are tallied, and the player finishing with the highest season total wins the group.
Please remember that when point spreads are involved, picking the winning team may not result in a correct selection. If the team you select is favored by 10 points, they have to win by at least 11 points for your pick to be accurate.
If you believe a 10-point favorite will win by 10 points or fewer (or lose outright), you should select the underdog to win the game, if your group uses point spreads.
