Do you think you’re the best football handicapper in the world? Well, it’s time to put your money where your mouth is.
DraftKings is running a Pick’Em National Championship that will make one person a millionaire. Yes, a millionaire. This isn’t the $20 pick ’em pool with your buddies — this is the big leagues.
Check out how to be a part of the madness below:
Pro Football Pick’Em National Championship — $1M Grand Prize
- Enter now: Click here
- Available states: New Hampshire, New Jersey, West Virginia
This is a high-stakes tournament with life-changing sums of money on the line. Not for the faint of heart, this pool requires a $1,500 buy-in, with users able to enter up to three times.
With high risk comes high reward, though, as the winner will walk away with $1M. The prizes don’t stop there, though, as 2nd place receives $250K all the way down to $2,500 for 50th place.
You’ll also get a $100 free bet every week that you post a 5-0 record.
Users will be picking five teams against the spread in 14 weeks between Week 1 and Week 16. Everyone gets to skip two weeks of their choosing, so if you hate the slate for a given week, just don’t submit any picks.
The point spreads you’ll use are the current lines whenever you submit your picks, which means you can get better lines than your opponents if you’re smart about it.
How many correct picks out of 70 total will it take to crown a winner? 45? 50? More?!
Find out for yourself and go for the gold (disclaimer: prizes are not paid in gold).
