Can I make more than one pick at a time?

No. The game is designed so you can only make one pick per day. Note that once you have a matchup picked you can NOT change it even if the match up has not started yet. All picks are final.

If my pick ends in a PUSH is my streak reset back to 0?

No! Any matchup that goes final with a PUSH result is scored as if the event didn't happen.

How many matchups will be on the board each day?

It depends on the day’s sporting schedule. There is no fixed limit to how many or how few each day.

Can a matchup be pulled off the board after I've picked it?

Yes, matchups can be removed from the board at anytime. There are a number of different circumstances which can lead this happening. The most common are weather delays. In most cases this will not happen after a significant amount of time has taken place, or the outcome is mostly already decided. Matchups can also be pulled off the board if a significant change in the winning probability is determined. An example of this can be player injuries or suspensions which are announced day of the event.

How are matchups scored if a player or players in a listed prop do NOT end up playing?

Any prop that states a player or players must start will be cancelled and pushed for all pickers if one or more of the players doesn't start. (i.e. Which QB will record MORE PASSING YARDS in the FIRST HALF? (Both Must Start). If one or both of the QBs do NOT start the game, the prop will scored as a PUSH). If a player is scratched from the lineup prior to the game, the prop will be scored as a PUSH.
