The Boxing Bulletin Pick'em Game - October Week 1

With the first weekend of October coming up, it's time to start a new Boxing Bulletin's Pick'em game. Point totals are reset at the beginning of the month, so join right in if you haven't played yet because everyone's starting from scratch again.

Our game is a combination of picking the winners straight-up and beating the odds. If you're ready to match your prognostication skills against other boxing fans, then let's get started...

If you played last week, scroll down to the bottom for September's final standings.

The game is strictly for fun, and entry is free. The deadline to enter this week is Thursday night at 11 PM EST. We'll have the results tabulated and posted with Monday's Week 4 game sheet (please check this post's comments for early results, as we'll try getting them up there by Sunday).

If you've played before and know the rules, here's the game sheet for this week: Week 1 game sheet.

Pick The Winners

This part's easy - 2 points for each correct answer.

Beat The Odds

This is where it gets a little more involved, as you will be risking points to gain points. You will also have the option of choosing 1 fight to risk double points and 1 fight to risk triple points (you cannot choose the same fight to risk double and triple fights on).


We will keep standings for the full year, although each game will only last for 1 month. At the end of the month standings will be reset and a new game will begin.

We've got a few details below on the fights in play this week, but if you're ready to get started, here's the Week 1 game sheet.
