NFL survivor:

    After a wild first week, all of the most popular NFL survivor pool picks survived last week. In the first two weeks of the 2020 season, the public spread its survivor picks across a wide variety of choices, as there was no huge favorite in either week. That changes in Week 3 as the Colts, hosting the woeful Jets, become the first double-digit point-spread favorite of the season. In this post, we will analyze the five most popular survivor pool picks of NFL Week 3 using the “Holy Trinity” of survivor pick strategy data: win odds, pick popularity, future value. Over the past three years, our subscribers have reported nearly $2.5 million in survivor pool winnings thanks to this data-driven...
    To borrow a phrase from the great Bruce Springsteen, “Is there anybody alive out there tonight”? As we enter Week 2 of the NFL season, I write this from the survivor afterlife, lying under the snapped limb I went out on by somewhat boldly picking the Detroit Lions. Per Warren Sharp, since 2006 there had been 782 teams that led by 17 in the fourth quarter. Only three of those 782 lost. Meet team No. 4. A big key to success in survivor pools is bucking the trend at some point to separate yourself from the rest of the contestants. You must think differently. Well, Detroit sure was different. Circa runs a high-stakes, $1,000-entry survivor pool that this year...
    The first NFL survivor week featured some carnage, as the Colts, Eagles, and 49ers were all popular choices that got upset right away. If you advanced, though, that means fewer survivor opponents to compete against in Week 2, since around 40 percent of survivor pool entries nationwide were eliminated last week. There are plenty of worthwhile pick options in Week 2, but making the right strategic choice can set yourself up for a deep run in your knockout pool this season. In this post we will analyze the five most popular survivor and knockout pool picks of Week 2 using the “Holy Trinity” of survivor pick strategy data: Win odds, pick popularity, and future value.

    Survive and advance! Though that phrase was created to convey the mindset of college hoops teams trying to navigate the unpredictability of March Madness, it applies just as fittingly to September. Survivor pools are a fall tradition as good as any. They offer a low-risk/ high-reward way to getting action on the games. Pick a team, any team, to just win the game. No point spread. If you win, you survive to play another week. The beauty of this contest lies in its simplicity. It expands the pool of people who can participate in a format that’s welcoming to the person in the office who doesn’t even watch football, yet challenging to even the sharpest of NFL bettors. Let’s...
    Survive and advance!

No level unfold. In the event you win, you survive to play one other week. The great thing about this contest lies in its simplicity.

    It’s officially time to start sweating your 2020 Week 1 NFL Survivor Pool picks. The opening week this year gives us quite a few legitimate survivor options, and there is no general agreement on which team is the best pick. At least five different teams, including the Ravens, Chiefs, and 49ers, are drawing 10 percent of the public’s picks, but no team is being selected more than 20 percent of the time. We will analyze the five most popular survivor and knockout pool picks of Week 1 using the “Holy Trinity” of survivor pick strategy data: Win odds, pick popularity, and future value. Over the past three years, our subscribers have reported nearly $2.5 million in survivor pool winnings thanks to this...
    In an NFL survivor pool, you need to successfully pick a winning team each week. The big catch is that you can only select each NFL team once. That rule turns what looks like a very simple game into a complex puzzle where you have to decide on a strategy for when to best use teams. That hidden complexity also creates opportunities for smart pool players. Survivor pools are high-risk ventures, and the most likely outcome is that you don’t win a specific pool. But with good strategy, you can increase your chances of taking down a pot and making great returns over the long run. This analysis is brought to you by TeamRankings, the only site that provides customized...

    New England Patriots Pro Bowl linebacker and proud new dad Dont'a Hightower is opting out of the 2020 season because he wants to focus on his family's health amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 'Me and my fiancée are just more concerned with the health of our family than football — especially the new addition to our family,' he said in a statement given to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Furthermore, Hightower's mother L'Tyna is a diabetic — a condition that can complicate the treatment of, and recovery from, the coronavirus infection. Hightower isn't alone. Safety Patrick Chung, running back Brandon Bolden, fullback Danny Vitale, backup offensive lineman Najee Torant, and starting right tackle Marcus Cannon, a cancer survivor, have all opted out...
