The 2020 NFL season is right around the corner and DraftKings Sportsbook is putting together a gigantic NFL pick ’em pool for bettors in New Jersey. Despite the uncertainty facing the 2020 NFL season, there is a lot to be excited about as September approaches. With the buy-in set at $1500 and no cap on how many people can enter (three entries max per player), this massive NFL pick ’em pool is not for the faint of heart.

The format of the pool is pretty simple. Each bettor will need to make five picks against the spread and the player with the most wins at the end of the season takes home the grand prize of at least $1 million. Of course, this pool is a bit more complex than that, but that’s the gist of things.

Preparing For COVID-19 Complications

It’s impossible to talk about the 2020 NFL season without at least addressing the possibility of COVID-19 throwing the schedule out of whack. NFL rookies are supposed to report on Monday, but so far it looks like the league has taken few steps to protect its players from the coronavirus pandemic. Players are speaking out about the lack of preparation.

Canceling half of the preseason is one step the NFL has taken in response to the growing threat of COVID-19. There are rumblings that the league could take this a step further and cut the preseason to one or no games. So what would it mean if the 2020 NFL season is delayed or worse, canceled midway through the season?

Here’s what DraftKings is planning in the event that COVID-19 impacts the 2020 NFL season:

  • If Week 1 is pushed back, the pick ’em pool will move back with it.
  • If the season is canceled after 12 weeks, winners will be paid out.
  • If the season is canceled before 12 weeks, all players will be refunded.
  • If the season is canceled after 12 weeks but before 16 weeks, DraftKings will use percentages of correct picks to determine the winners of the 2020 NFL pick ’em pool.

So what are you waiting for? This pick ’em pool is a rare opportunity for NFL bettors to test their skills in a massive pool.
