If more than one pick is posted by a contestant, the first pick will be used. Editing picks will not be allowed. Once your pick is posted it is official.

    4. If a game is posted as "OFF" when lines are posted on Wednesday morning, it will remain "OFF" even if the side and total are subsequently posted later in the week. Posting a game that is "OFF" will be counted as a loss.
