ACC Pick 'Em Contest Week 2
Come and join the fun. Your lowest week is being dropped for the grand prize, so there is still time to get in and win this!

This week there are no conference games, so all 15 will be ACC and ND. However, MGM does not publish lines on games involving FCS. So instead of those games we will use several others of general interest. Remember all games are picked with the spread. With that said, Here are this week's games:

UVA -10 vs IL
Pitt -3.5 @ TN
Cuse +2.5 vs Rutgers
VT -20 vs MTSU
ND -16.5 vs Toledo
BC -38 @ UMass
Miami -8 vs App St
NCST -2.5 @MS ST
UNC -25.5 vs GA ST

Air Force -5.5 @ Navy
IA -4.5 @IA St
WA +6.5 @ MI
UT -7 @ BYU
TX -6.5 @ AR
SC -1 @ ECU

Tie Breaker:
Guess the total points scored by FCS schools against ACC opponents this week. Closest guess wins.

Duke vs NC A&T
GT vs Kennesaw St
WF vs Norfolk St
Clemson vs SC St
Louisville vs EKU
FSU vs J'ville ST

RE: ACC Pick 'Em Contest Week 2
How will push bets be counted in the standings? Some point spreads don't have half-points to prevent a tie.

Excellent question. How did you do it last year?

Navy +5.5
Iowa -4.5

I arbitrarily added a half point to one of the teams so there wouldn't be any ties.

I arbitrarily added a half point to one of the teams so there wouldn't be any ties.

Since it is too late to do that for this week, any push will be counted as a win. Going forward, I will adjust round numbers by .5 to avoid any pushes in the future.

Thanks!
