PrizePicks for December 17


Thursday’s football action is upon us and once again thanks to favorable scheduling (from a fan’s perspective), we only have to wait two days instead of three for more football after this game, as we have a pair of Saturday games for Week 15 as well. As for Thursday’s game, we have the Chargers paying a visit to Vegas to square off with the Raiders. My focus for this game will be on PrizePicks.

Speaking of “PrizePicks,” it is a creative new way to parlay picks based on expected fantasy point production.

The format is simple. You pick two, three or four players and predict whether they will go over or under their projected fantasy point total.

When parlaying the players, the larger your parlay, the better the payout:

  • Two-pick entry pays 3x (max entry: $400)
  • Three-pick entry pays 5x (max entry: $200)
  • Four-pick entry pays 10x (max entry: $100)

As a bonus offer, there is a “flex play” option if you choose to run a four-man parlay. This will provide some security, as you can earn 1.5x your buy-in if three of your four picks hit.

Thursday’s night game kicks off at 8:20 p.m. ET.

An important note — these lines can shift over the course of the day leading up until lock. The lines that I am quoting are at the time of writing (Thursday morning). I will be in the PrizePicks Discord channel (which is free!) up until lock to help out with how to adjust to the changing projections.
