Who Will Be This Years Best Football Prognosticator Ever?

The Sedge Court Journal is pleased to announce the rules and prizes for the 2010 Sedge Court Journal Football Handicapping Competition. Once again we are refining the rules to make our picks better and more useful for our readers! These improvements will continue to demonstrate our position as the "undisputed" leader of Free Football Pick Websites!!!!


A. No Pre-Season Picks!!!!!! No ones heart was into it and hey---it's the pre-season!

B. Maximum of 5 picks per week!!!! Were testing skill here. Not the ability to dig yourself to a .500 weekly record by betting 39 games a week!

C. $100 bones for each and every capper who achieves a 80% ATS record by the end of the season!!!!

Official Rules:

1.) Every Capper will be allocated 10,000 points at the beginning of the College Kick-off. The competition will officially end after the Superbowl.

2.) Cappers are required to make a minimum of 3 picks per week. There is a maximum of 5 picks per week. THIS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED. Weeks begin on Tuesday and end on Monday. (i.e. Monday Night Football is the last game of the week)

3.) Picks can be Over/Unders or Point Spread Sides. (Moneyline, Teasers, Parlays, or Prop Bets are not allowed)

4.) Minimum Bet 100 points / Maximum Bet 1000 points

5.) Each capper is required to Post the current line available at and the amount of Sedge Court Money they are wagering at the time that the Pick is posted. Failure to comply will result in the pick not being counted. If points are not posted at the time of the pick it is assumed the pick was 100 points.

*Note: A email is sent to the webmaster when the pick is posted. This email is timestamped and is the official record for disputes.

6.) All picks are required to be posted at least 1 1/2 hours prior to kick-off. Picks posted within 1 1/2 hours of kick-off will not be counted.

7.) Every Capper is allowed to miss one week and not required to release picks.

8.) Missed picks will be counted as a loss in the record and 100 points per missed pick will be deducted from the Cappers Sedge Court Money Account.

9.) After nine (9) missed picks (including the cappers bye week) the capper will automatically be disqualified from the competition and ineligible to receive any prize money.

10.) AFC/ NFC Championship Week and Superbowl Week will be combined into one week in order for cappers to meet the three pick minimum requirement.

11.) Capper accounts can dip into negative values, however they will be prohibited from winning any prize money if they finish the season with a negative balance (even if that happens to be the best record).

12.) The Sedge Court Journal is not required to inform Cappers when and if they are in danger of losing and/or have been disqualified from eligibility to receive prize pool money. It is the responsibility of each capper to read and understand the rules of the Sedge Court Journal Football Handicapping Competition.

14.) Rules changes will be considered until 12:00 a.m. Saturday, August 15, 2009.

Prize Money and Handicapping Title:

A minimum $400 cash prize prize has been established and will be divided equally between the following two winners.

Best Football Prognosticator: This title will be awarded to the Capper who has the greatest percentage increase in the value of his Sedge Court Money Account. (2008 Winner: Vegas Predictor)

Best Winning Percentage: This title will be awarded to the capper with the greatest winning percentage. (2008 Winner: AlDawg)

The 2008 prize pool will be a minimum of $400 and a maximum of 25% of the Sedge Court Journals Ad revenue from the Adsense Program. In addition any capper who achieves a season end record of greater than 80% ATS is entitled to a bonus of $100. Prize money will be allocated provided the following criteria are met:

a.) Never miss more than 6 picks throughout competition.

b.) Release all picks in prior to 1 1/2 hours before kick-off

c.) Consistently adds value by providing insightful or humorous content throughout the duration of the season.

d.) The Sedge Court Journal reserves the right to decrease/eliminate the payout if the winning capper(s) is deemed to be lacking in insight and/or humor.


Participation is free and is open to any individual who has a passion for Football and/or Handicapping. Interested individuals should submit a request to the Big Kielbasa at

Good Luck!
