RotoBaller's College Football Pickem Pool Challenge - CFB Pick Em Contest on ESPN

Brock Bowers - Fantasy Football Rankings, NFL Rookies, Draft Sleepers, NCAA College Football, Prospects

We are happy to announce the third annual RotoBaller ESPN College Football Pick Em contest! I brought this over here when I joined RotoBaller, and it's a great way to match wits with fellow RotoBaller writers and readers!

ESPN College Pick Em highlights ten games per week. All you have to do is pick the winner of each game! If only it were that easy, right? You also have to assign a confidence point "wager" to your pick from 10 points to 1 point. Each week I will have an article up on the site with my picks and analysis, so you already know what I'm picking.

Since the confidence points add a little twist, we here at RotoBaller will give out a little prize. This game runs from Week 1 to Championship Week. The top three entries with the most points will win free premium access to RotoBaller's Premium VIP football tools for a full year ($450 value)!

Sign Up Now!


Join The RotoBaller Pickem Contest Now - It's All Free!

Head to the ESPN College Pick Em and create an entry to join the RotoBaller Pick Em group. There is no password and it is a public league. You can get creative with your entry name by clicking on the gear icon next to your name.

Make your picks on the ten games every week.

Adjust the points for win with 10 being the most confident and 1 being the least.

Only one team is allowed per user. The group will be locked when the games start on September 2.

Stay tuned to RotoBaller throughout the season for my picks and the group standings.

ESPN College Football Pick Em Strategy

Slow and steady can win this race, but it doesn't always work out that way. If you like an underdog, chances are that most are going to pick the favorite. ESPN shows the percentage at which each team has been picked globally. You can go against that and try to gain some points by increasing your confidence.

I generally put the games that I expect to be won handily at the top to get the most points. For instance, I have Illinois in the top spot right now, but Toledo is only being picked at 2%. 98% of users are on Illinois, so many others will have the Illini up top.

However, I have a feeling that UTSA is good enough to beat Houston, yet they are only picked at 15%. Even putting a moderate confidence rating on this (I have them at 4 right now) can generate a nice point boost for you since 85% of entries won't gain any points if UTSA wins.


Tournament Rules & Prizes

The top three finishers of the RotoBaller ESPN College Football Pick Em Challenge will win a free RotoBaller Premium Pass for all sports ($450 value) which includes access to our college football premium tools. Premium tools include help with last-minute lineup and DFS decisions in our Discord chat.

It also includes access to our Premium college football lineup optimizer to help with DFS decisions on both FanDuel and DraftKings. Simply sort by slate and our optimizer will kick out your selected number of lineups in seconds.


Who will be crowned the champ of the RotoBaller Pickem Challenge?

Outside of the prize we are offering, ESPN also is offering up a share of $86,000 to those who play every game type (spread, confidence, standard) for every week of the season.

Cash prizes are also offered for those who score the highest on the ESPN site among each game type.

Make sure you are following our college football content all season, and good luck RotoBallers!
