NFL Survivor Pool Strategy

It’s common to need sophisticated techniques to win an NFL Survivor Pool, especially as the season goes on and your options grow more constrained. Here are a few helpful NFL Survivor pool tips to improve your chances of winning.

Analyze the Entire NFL Schedule

  • Before the season begins, analyze the entire schedule to identify potential weak opponents and strong teams. This will help you plan your picks strategically for the entire season

Identify Favorable Matchups

  • Pay great attention to the matchups, taking into account factors such as the home-field advantage, injuries, the circumstances of the weather, and the performance trends of the teams. Pick the teams that have the highest possibility of coming out on top against the more vulnerable competition.

Keep Bye Weeks in Mind

  • Be aware of bye weeks for each team. Avoid selecting teams on their bye week, as they won’t be playing.
  • Plan your picks around your chosen teams’ bye weeks, ensuring you have alternatives available.


What is an NFL Survivor Pick’em Pool?

An NFL Survivor Pick pool, also known as an Eliminator pool or Survivor pool, is a well-liked form of sports betting or prediction game in which players pick one NFL club to win each week’s game. The objective is to select a winning team each week, without using the same group of players more than once, until only one person is left as the lone survivor or winner. This is how it usually goes.

  • Participants join the Survivor Pool by paying an entry fee, if applicable. In some cases, pools may be free to enter for fun
  • Before the NFL season starts, each participant makes their initial pick for Week 1, selecting one NFL team they believe will win its game.
  • Picking a Team – In each subsequent week, participants must choose one NFL team they believe will win their game. Once a team is chosen, it cannot be used again for the rest of the season.
  • If the team chosen by a participant wins its game, they advance to the next week.
  • If the team chosen by a participant loses or ties their game, that participant is eliminated from the pool.
  • The objective is to survive longer than the other participants by consistently picking winning teams.
  • Tiebreakers – In case multiple participants are still alive in the pool late in the season and there are no more unique teams to pick, tiebreakers are used. Common tiebreakers include:
