Advice and Tips for NFL Suicide Pools
by Trevor Whenham - 07/10/2007

The best part of the NFL is that there are hundreds of different ways to get some action and hopefully make a bit of money. You can play your basic point spreads, totals or money line, but there is so much more out there. Everybody knows somebody who is running some sort of pool or fantasy league, and if you follow football closely you'll have an edge over the long term over the people who pick teams based on mascot name or uniform color. One of the most difficult but entertaining and potentially lucrative ways to put your money in play during the pro football season is in an NFL suicide pool - also known as an NFL eliminator pool. This season at Doc's Sports we will provide week-by-week suicide pool advice to give you the best chance to win the pot.

Week 8 Advice for NFL Suicide Pools
by Drew Mangione - 10/25/2006

A good friend of mine reminded me on Sunday evening that a wise man once said "Never take road favorites in a divisional game." That wise man was, of course, me. Did I listen? No. Another wise man told me last Wednesday to stay away, far away, from the Jacksonville at Houston game. That man was Doc's Sports writer and handicapper Robert Ferringo. I should have listened to him. I should have listened to myself.

Week 7 Advice for NFL Suicide Pools
by Drew Mangione - 10/19/2006

Monday night was pure insanity. Why did I take the Bears? WHY! I can't count high enough to tell you how many times I said those words. It didn't look good and in a week when almost everyone else in the pool took the Broncos and advanced, my frustration was close to tearing apart my recliner, shattering a glass door, and severing the lining of my stomach as I crammed chips, pasta and beer down my gullet.

Week 6 Advice for NFL Suicide Pools
by Drew Mangione - 10/13/2006

The pool of sweat beneath me around 4 p.m. Sunday was tremendous. My friend's leather recliner is certainly worse for wear. However, once the early games were over and the dog lapped up the tsunami of worries, my suicide pool slots were safe and only my pride was in jeopardy. I believed my analysis was sound last week, but the football is a fickle game.

Week 5 Advice for NFL Suicide Pools
by Drew Mangione - 10/06/2006

I'm alive. Barely. No, I'm not talking about my suicide pool picks, which won easily. No, rather I decided to play a little game Monday night-take a shot of whiskey each time Kornheiser, Theisman and Tirico said those two magic words, Terrell Owens. Well, after the first quarter, I felt as though I had overdosed on pain medication and knew my only recourse was to switch to beer.

Suicide Pools - Nothing to do With Terrell Owens
by Drew Mangione - 09/28/2006

They're called elimination pools, but I prefer the not-so-politically-correct name: suicide pool. Sure, it looks good on the surface-$5 a slot, winner take all. The aim is simple: pick one straight-up winner each week. You can't use the same team twice. And if your selections get beat, well, you're out a pack of cigarettes.
