What’s better than the NFL season being underway? Free money!
You can partake in the best of both worlds this weekend with our new free-to-play FOX Super 6 game.
How do you play? Enter the contest by predicting the correct answers to six questions before the games start for your chance at weekly cash prizes. All you have to do is finish in the top six to win a prize.
It really is that simple, and again, it’s free. Also, here is an easy FAQ on all the steps and rules.
And if you need a little help before heading to the app to make your picks for Sunday’s big games, I’ve got you covered.
Let’s dive into the questions and my predictions below.
Order the receivers by who will have the most RECEIVING YARDS from highest to lowest:
I’ve heard nothing but great things about Ridley’s offseason. The Jags should be able to pass all over the Colts in that game, which is why I like him the best out of this group.
I also like Metcalf this weekend, as he already has chemistry with quarterback Geno Smith.
The big 6-foot-4 target finished with 90 catches for 1,048 yards and six touchdowns last season, and I like his matchup this weekend.
Lastly, Moore is a stud receiver, so I’m excited to see how the Bears utilize him right out of the gates. It might just take Moore and Justin Fields a couple of weeks to get their chemistry down.
Prediction: Ridley, Metcalf, Moore, London
What will be the outcome of the Rams-Seahawks game?
win or lose by 5 points or fewer; win by 6 points or more
This is more of a play against the Rams, who, outside , and , have one of the worst rosters in the league. And they will be without one of those players in Kupp, who has been placed on injured reserve.
The Seahawks are also my top survivor choice this week.
Prediction: Seahawks to win by 6 points or more.
Who will have the most RUSHING and RECEIVING YARDS combined?
There’s a reason the 49ers went after McCaffrey last season. When healthy, he’s one of the best two-way weapons in the NFL.
Etienne had more than 1,400 yards rushing and receiving last season and should improve on that this year, but health is always a concern with him.
The Bears might stack the box against the Packers, as they are missing wide receiver Christian Watson and breaking in their new starting quarterback, Jordan Love. AJ Dillon will also eat into Jones’ carries.
Order the teams by who will score the most POINTS from highest to lowest:
The oddsmakers project the Seahawks and Jags to score the most points this weekend, as both team totals are set to 25.5.
The Seahawks should move the ball against the Rams, as that defense is devoid of talent, and the Jaguars and Trevor Lawrence should be able to move the ball easily against the Colts.
This one is a toss-up, but I’ll go Jaguars, then ‘Hawks.
Prediction: Jaguars, Seahawks, 49ers, Packers
Which quarterback will throw for the most PASSING YARDS?
You can’t discount experience at the quarterback position, which gives Fields a huge edge over his competition in this group.
I like what Richardson offers as a rookie, and Love will be dealing with intense scrutiny replacing Aaron Rodgers.
What will be the outcome of the Packers-Bears game?
win or lose by 2 points or fewer; win by 3 or more points
The Packers are everyone’s trendy surprise team. It’s to a point where they are so trendy that they are not a surprise team. Maybe the Pack will deliver, maybe they will not. Nobody really knows for sure how Love will do.
On the flip side, I’m far from a Justin Fields-is-an-MVP-candidate guy, but his scrambling ability is something that will give defenses problems. And, on the other side of the ball, the defense can’t help but improve.
And if you are betting on the game, you might want to wait on sending this wager in, as I could see Green Bay money coming in to make this a pick or even GB -1, but I think the Bears are the right side here. Remember, too, as bad as they were last year, they did beat the in the season opener.
Prediction: Bears win by 3 or more points.
Tiebreaker: What will be the final score?
Prediction: Bears 23, Packers 13
