We have a great slate of games to begin the tournament as the spreads, totals and moneylines on DraftKings Sportsbook are listed below.

As for the Pick’em competition, below is a look at where our writers stand after heading into the playoffs.

  1. Bill Williamson 179-93 (66%)
  2. Matt Holder 171-101 (63%)
  3. Ray Aspuria 158-100 (61%)

Week 18 was kind to me as I led the writers with a strong 13-3 performance. That, plus Ray rounding out the group at 10-6, gives me a comfortable two percent lead before the postseason and should allow me to secure second place. However, Bill had another good showing at 12-4 and will run away with the writer’s championship seeing as he has an eight-pick lead.

We have a barn burner at the top of the community standings. Sci-Town MA Raiders and Chrome&Oynx have been throwing haymakers at each other and this past week might have been their best round yet. Sci-Town just edged out Oynx by getting 14 correct picks to create a tie for first place! Those two will continue to duke it out over the next couple of months.

Also, a big shoutout is in order for dafe2cat for only getting one game wrong in Week 18. We also had a handful of people with 12 winners and 11 pickers who went 11-5 for another strong overall performance by the group!

Remember to get those picks in this weekend and that we have two games on Saturday and another on Monday night. Best of luck to everyone!
