Yes!!! Lock Club is ON. I will post the rules and send out the invites this week. Let's get a bigger group this season. If everyone can get 1 person to join us, we'll have 10+ this year.

Are we doing lock club this year
The B-Man2/8/21 12:14:14PM ET
Congrats to our winner:

2020-2021 Lock Club Champion: and charp battled down to the last second, as charp needed to pick the opposite of to have a chance. Both ended up with The Chiefs (-2.5) and so it was over before the game kicked off. I'm giving myself a pat on the back for getting the pick right and finishing in 3rd -- losing to charp on the season tie-breaker -- and above .500 at least. I more than covered my Lock Club entry fee with real $$$ bets on the Bucs and the Under. So I was happy. :-P

Speaking of money, gets the top prize of $315 for his picking prowess this season while charp settles for second place money of $135. Both of you let me know the easiest way to get you your winnings and I'll send them out this week.

Thanks again for a great season on the site, guys. I'll work over the summer to get the site refreshed, hopefully automating the Lock Club picks/standings and enticing more people to join us.

See you back here in August!

Okay fellas, here we are. We made it all the way to the big game without a cancellation. Pretty good job by the NFL and the teams and players, when it's all said and done. And what a great matchup we got, too.

I wasn't a real believer in the Bucs for most of the season. I didn't think they had it all together for a real run at the title, but here they are. The Chiefs have been their typical unstoppable selves and seem to be poised to run away with this again.

Paying homage to Lee Corso... Not so fast, my friends. I think the experience factor with Brady will be big. He can go toe to toe with the kid and will put up plenty of points. I also think the Bucs defense is strong enough to get some stops and harass Mahomes.

So I'm taking the Bucs and the under...

In case anyone wants to use it, our Over-Under line for the Super Bowl Lock Pick will be 56.5.

No objection to O/U line for the SB.

And we are down to 2! charp's win guarantees him no worse than 2nd place (he owns the tie-breaker over me and cyoung2ty based on Lock Club Pool standings) and sets up an interesting dilemma for the final pick. He has to pick the opposite of to have a chance at the top spot. He has to win his pick and has to lose his. The two scenarios under which he wins 1st place:
  1. charp picks Chiefs / picks Bucs / Chiefs win and cover - charp 13-9 over 12-9
  2. charp picks Bucs / picks Chiefs / Bucs win - charp 12-9 over 12-9 on the tiebreaker
The tie-breaker is "overall ranking in the spread picks on this site for the year using the site's point system", which charp has locked up.

Last year, we reinstated the Over/Under as a Lock Pick choice for the Super Bowl to add more scenarios. I'm open to doing that if charp and agree -- since they have money on the line. Next season, I'll put this in the Rules (somebody remind me).

Big win for this week and he has the big prize all but locked up now with 2 picks left. Only charp's SB Bonus pick (Chiefs) prevents him from clinching. Speaking of those picks, 3 out of the 4 teams left are represented by the 3 guys battling it out for 2nd place. So 2nd place won't be decided until the Super Bowl champion is crowned. Good luck this weekend for the top 4 still in the running!

Not much change in the standings with 5 losses this week (ouch folks). cyoung2ty moves up with his Ravens pick. All the Super Bowl bonus picks are in and could definitely make a difference in the final standings since only 2 people picked the same team.

Good luck Lock Clubbers - we're in the final stretch!

I have a Ravens fan in my household and I will be cheering for them as far as they go. They have a tough first round matchup, but they have a revenge factor working. So...

B-Man's Super Bowl Bonus Pick: Baltimore RAVENS

Looking at all the Wildcard matchups, this one looks like the one most likely to result in a blowout (Saints-Bears, close second)...

For just about the first time all season, we have a little separation in the standings. remains out front with a single game separating the rest of the field from each other. With 4 picks left plus the Super Bowl bonus, there's still plenty of time and no one has been mathematically eliminated yet. Go ahead and make your SB Bonus pick any time before kickoff Saturday. The deadline for the SB pick is kickoff of the *first* Wildcard game (not your pick's game).
