FRIDAY FOOTBALL SHOWDOWN: Week 8


FRIDAY FOOTBALL SHOWDOWN

Each Friday throughout the football season, two handicappers go head to head in a bracket contest. Sixteen contestants were invited to enter for $1,500 each. The Golden Nugget added $1,000 to the prize pool for a total of $25,000.

Each handicapper makes seven selections against the spread, from all college and NFL sides and totals posted on the Golden Nugget board at noon Friday. The seventh selection is designated as the Best Bet for tiebreaking purposes.
