Football Contests 2015

Pay Contests

The contests in this category require that you to pay an entry fee that can’t be recouped unless you win a prize. In most cases, the year-end prizes are dominant, meaning that you either have to be a local or arrange for a proxy (where allowed) to get your picks in every week of the season. Most of the contests return 100% of the money collected. Remember that the high-entry-fee contests are the ones the pros play and these guys are good. If you play the SuperContest or the Golden Nugget contest, you’ll face stiff competition.

Free Contests

These contests have no entry fees, making them suitable to play at any time during the season and the best choice for out-of-towners. They are essentially winner-take-all formats, so it’s unlikely that you’ll cash, but free is free — having an entry means you’re in action and if lightning strikes, it’s a big payday.
