Sample NFL Pick'em Payouts and Prizes

Below is a list of various payout structures you can use for your NFL Pick'em Pool and your NFL Confidence Pools. Please keep in mind you should check the laws in your local jurisdiction before wagering money on office pools.


We recommend paying 10% of the entries for up to 50 people. As the number of entries increase above that, we recommend decreasing the percent of places paid.

Example: If you have only 20 participants enter the pool, we recommend paying out 10%(2) of the entries. If you have 100 participants enter, we recommend paying out 7%(7) of the entries.


The table below shows the number of payouts per entry, along with the percentages that should be paid out based on what place the participant finishes.


Entries Payouts 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th
0-10 1 100% - - - -
11-20 2 70% 30% - - -
21-30 3 65% 25% 10% - -
31-40 4 50% 25% 15% 10% -
41-50 5 50% 20% 15% 10% 5%

Example:

Your Pick'em Pool has 40 entries at $10 a person for a total weekly prize pool of $400. The payouts would be as follows:

1st Place - $200(50%)

2nd Place - $100(25%)

3rd Place - $60(15%)

4th Place - $40(10%)

 

If you are running a lower cost $1-$2 pool, it is not uncommon to just pay 1 winner, no matter the number of participants.


Variation

Another popular option is to take a portion of the total prize pool and pay it out to the person who picks the most games correct for the entire season. An example using the $10 per person entry fee from above is to take $2 per person, per week, out of the prize pool and put it into a separate pot for the "Grand Champion"!

Example with 40 Players Per Week at $10 a Person

Total amount of entry fees would be 40 x $10 x 17 Weeks = $6,800

$80 Per Week - $1,360 Total - Set aside for the Grand Champion

$320 left each week for payouts

1st Place - $160(50%)

2nd Place - $80(25%)

3rd Place - $48(15%)

4th Place - $32(10%)

Grand Champion - $1,360
