Gunner Gunners fire long distance screamers at people 4,211 pts

Perhaps make it a point value system where the more games you predict correctly, the more points you earn rather than having someone guessing correctly on fewer matches than someone who guesses all the time.

To add on to that, there should be bonus points if you predict an upset to make it more rewarding to someone to predict it.

To Gunner's point, you could reward correct picks that are contrarian somehow. For example, multiply points by (1-% who picked that option) or something. Picking the obvious odds would win points but with different risk/reward.

Other options: could have more than one contest going on in parallel. For example:

What about doing a separate one before the season where people pick all 38 matches up front?

Or one where you pick a single league match each week and get eliminated if you guess wrong, then can only pick each team once? Last person standing wins. Not sure what it's called but is a common format in American football betting pools.

Or one where you can pick Spurs to lose every week?

For that matter there could be separate contests for each cup/competition to have more chances to win.

This already happens, but has been extended for the upcoming site change.
