Play Game Weekly Upset Picks - 2018 Edition

    THE BEST CONTEST ON THE INTERNET IS BACK!!!!!

    Once again, this will be a simple contest to participate in. Each week I will list all of the underdogs in the Div 1-A games that I see a point-spread for at the beginning of the week. Each person may pick 1 and only 1 team each week; just post your pick in this thread.

    You must pick your team before the kickoff of your game. It isn't mandatory to make a pick every week, but if you don't, you obviously can't earn any points that week.

    If your team wins, you are awarded the amount of points that they were assigned in the spread; if they lose you get 0 points. So it's riskier to pick Little-Sisters-of-the-Poor +47 when they play Texas Tech, but you get a ton of points if they win, as opposed to getting only a couple of points when you pick a close game.

    Once I post the point spreads inside this thread, they are locked for purposes of this contest. Only the spreads listed in this thread will be used to award points.

    The entire season-long contest will exist in this one thread. Each week I will post the points for that week and the season-to-date totals. Whoever has the most points after the Conference Championship Games in early December will be declared the winner, and will receive ยค25,000 Sportsbook "cash".

    There will be a separate contest in December for Bowl game upsets.

    2005 winner: @AkronBuckeye (64 points)
    2006 winner: @briegg (64 points)
    2007 winner: @MolGenBuckeye (83.5 points)
    2008 winner: @osugrad21 (63.5 points)
    2009 winner: @NFBuck (85 points)
    2010 winner: @LightningRod (69.5 points)
    2011 winner: @sears3820 (74 points)
    2012 winner: @OSUsushichic (51 points)
    2013 winner: @FCollinsBuckeye (64 points)
    2014 winner: @808 Buck (78.5 points)
    2015 winner: @Wadcutter (64 points)
    2016 winner: @BB73 (with a record 87.5 points)
    2017 winner: @BB73 (65.5 points)
    2018 winner: @UrbanBuckeye (64.5 points)

    This post will get the new picks and current standings updated each week. There will also be a post with that info near the end of the thread.

    Pick just one underdog team from the right column to win outright - you get nothing by picking a favorite that covers the spread.

    Please try & post the name of the team you're picking as it is listed, opposed to an abbreviation. Makes it much easier when attempting to tally up the scores. Thanks!
