*From America's Line; all other lines courtesy of Scores and Odds.

Home team in CAPS; national TV games in red; other designated tie-breaker games in blue.

IMPORTANT: Don't forget to designate three picks as Best Bets. These are used to break ties between pickers who have the same overall record; if no Best Bets are included the picker is placed behind all others with the same overall record.

Deadline for posting picks is kickoff of earliest game listed.

Any unpicked game counts as an automatic loss, even if game ends in push vs. spread. If a poster has left a game unpicked in an original post, the selection on the unpicked game may be added a any time before the kickoff of the earliest game played that week, but the addition must be made in a separate post and not by editing the original post (if I notice that someone has left a game unpicked in an original post, I will attempt to contact the poster by sending a private message; however there is no guarantee that I will catch every single one, especially in the case of picks being posted very early in the week). Under no circumstances can any pick be changed (from one team to the opposing team, or changing a Best Bet from one game to another) once it has been posted.

Pushes count as ties (half a win and half a loss) in determining both overall record and record in applicable tie-breakers.

Next week is Thanksgiving, which means two games will be played on Thursday - so remember to get your picks in early next week; at kickoff time of Thursday's first game the thread will be closed. If any game (or games) has no line posted on it by approximately 12:00 Noon EST on Tuesday, said game (or games) will be declared void and will be excluded from the contest.
