Week 2 of 4! Arguably the slowest week of the month, but even still we have two title fights and a few other interesting fights and props. With the right strategy, this is the kind of week that really builds a lead.

This week's action includes: Herring vs Hovhannisyan, Warren vs Zhakiyanov, Easter vs Cruz, Daws vs Yigit, and more.

Check those multiplers here!

Another bit of a slow week, but we still have plenty of points on the sheet.

Week 2 of 4! "Let's get it get it get it!"

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).
