2012 NFL Media Contest

We’re excited to announce the first ever Wagerminds Media Challenge.

See, we track predictions. And members of the sports media love to make predictions. So we figured: hey, let’s have a contest and see which member of the media is the best at predicting NFL games (against the spread, of course).

We reached out to the most knowledgeable and courageous media personalities we could find. And, to their credit, most have agreed to participate in the contest. While we have a dozen victims contestants already signed up, we’ll be adding more. And if you’re a member of the media and want to join, send us an email (info@wagerminds.com) and we’ll get you in.

The Rules

  • Like the LVH SuperContest, the most prestigious handicapping challenge in the world, we’ll have contestants pick 5 games each week against the spread
  • The contest will run from Week 1 through the Super Bowl
  • The contestant with the most wins is declared the “champion”
  • The prize: bragging rights, pride and some kind of trophy.
