PERFECT 10: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: Is the winning team defined as the team with the highest points / winning score? 

No. The winning team for the purpose of SI Tickets NFL Perfect 10 Game is the team that wins the "point spread". 

Q: What does “point spread” mean? 

The Point Spread in American Sports refers to the predicted number of points difference by which the assumed stronger team is expected to defeat the assumed weaker team. The “point spread” or “spread” is often used to determine Sports Betting odds. In SI Tickets Weekly NFL Perfect 10 game the winning team(s) are determined based on the points spread, not necessarily the actual game winner. Here is how it works: 

  • The underdog (the team with a positive point spread) must either 
    • (a) lose the game by no more than the point spread or 
    • (b) win the game by any number of points.  
  • The favorite (the team with a negative point spread) must win by the point spread 
Q: What if the score is equal to the point spread; Which pick is considered a “win”? 

A “push” may occur if the outcome (the score difference) of the game is the exact number of points spread, and therefore, there is a tie and no one wins. There can only be a push if the point spread for the game is a whole number. This is because the score difference will never include half points (as there are no half points in NFL games). No winner can be declared on a SI Tickets Perfect 10 game in the event of a push. When the outcome of a game is a "push, there is no winning pick possible.
