Sportspool.com - NFL Office Pools and You
A lot of offices take part in fantasy football leagues to allow workers to showcase their sports supremacy. But fantasy leagues are often time consuming and dependent on a great deal of luck. In order to properly showcase one's self as a true gridiron guru, a game that requires real knowledge and skill is needed, a game that necessitates real savvy about the NFL. After all, if you're going to beat your boss at something, you want it to be because you're smarter, not luckier, right?
The onset of fall brings NFL football and the NFL brings plenty of excuses for office mates to compete with each other. Be it fantasy football leagues or an NFL pool, the season provides plenty of opportunities for co-workers to pit their football knowledge and expertise against each other. Even if work itself is a drag and your boss is being particularly unbearable, it's good to know that, at least in one area, you have an opportunity to excel and show-up the rest of your co-workers.
A good site with a game that allows you to showcase such skills is SportsPool.com with our NFL Football pool game. At heart, it's a very simple game to play; simply pick the teams that you expect to win against the spread and win points if you're right. However, it's the element of the spread that makes it difficult and requires more craftiness than your average pick 'em game.
Let's say that the New Orleans Saints are playing the St. Louis Rams and the spread predicts that the Saints will win by 14 points. Any reasonable NFL fan would pick the defending Super Bowl champion Saints to beat the lowly Rams in a heartbeat. However, the question of whether the Saints win or not isn't the only question. The other question is if the Saints will win by at least 14 points. If you pick the Saints to win, but they only win by 13 rather than 14, you don't get a point for that pick. The element of the spread can trip many people up and utilizing your knowledge of game match-ups wisely can help you use that tool to your advantage and outsmart your co-workers.
If you understand the concept of the spread, the rest of the game is simple, as long as you make your picks on time. You can usually make your picks on Tuesdays after the spreads for the next week's games become available. Just be sure to make your picks before the first game of the next week, because picks lock at that time and, if you haven't made your picks, you won't be able to gain any points. Losing your NFL pool because you forgot to pick your winners may allow others to gloat; don't give them the opportunity! Best of all, the SportsPool.com automated system tallies up the points for you, so you don't have to worry about your co-workers cheating to gain an edge.
Office NFL pools are valuable to worker morale and are ultimately another work task. Of course, any work task that allows you to exercise your intelligence is a valuable one, especially if it allows you to show up someone else. By utilizing office pools properly, offices can be a little bit more pleasant to work in and, if you get to beat down the boss, even the co-workers who lost get to win a little bit in the end.
