There weren’t many upsets during the last two weeks of football but the first three yielded more than a few shocking results. Now those making foolish picks in their pools enjoy a chance at redemption thanks to totally legal BetOnline announcing a promotion sure to attract anyone taking Dallas over Cleveland last Sunday.
The 2nd Chance $100,000 NFL Survivor Contest is open to members around the world, including the USA, with registration closing Monday, October 12th, and every matchup for Week 5 is available for selection. Entries are reasonably-priced at $25 with additional ones costing less if purchasing more as 2 to 5 costs $20 each, 6 to 10 are $15, and 11 to 25 are $10 a pop.
To clarify the purse, this is one of BetOnline’s guaranteed sportsbook contests with a specific prize amount so regardless of participants, $100,000 is up for grabs. One lucky person receives the whole $100k if everyone else busts out beforehand, or it’s split evenly among those left in Week 17 (or an earlier week if all selections lose simultaneously).
Standard survivor pool rules apply such as each team can only be picked once, losses and ties result in elimination, and predictions are straight up, not against the spread. In addition, a new twist for this year thanks to Coronavirus is if a game is canceled or postponed and not played before the following Wednesday, both teams are considered “losers” and anyone taking them gets the boot. However, the silver lining is entry fees will be refunded so it’s not as bad as it could be.
So if craving a reprieve on terrible NFL survivor picks, head over and register at BOL to take another stab at glory. Just make sure to stay away from the Cowboys and Eagles for the rest of the season – they’ve both broken enough hearts for 2020.
