Everyone is back on level terms with a new season starting this week. So if you haven't played the game but have been thinking of playing, now is a good time to give it a try.
Showtime's Saturday night card delivering all the action. Adonis Stevenson takes on Andrzej Fonfara in the main-event. We've added an Over/Under to make this one more interesting. The undercard has David Lemieux taking on Fernando Guerrero in a battle of former prospects that are both in need of a win. Rounding out the show is a 154lb match-up between Jermell Charlo and Charlie Ota.
For those that haven't played before, welcome to the best pick'em game going. Please join right in and start playing (just make sure to check out the rules - we promise they are very simple).
