Readers can win cash by picking football games


XENIA — Readers of the Xenia Daily Gazette, Fairborn Daily Herald and Beavercreek News-Current have the chance to win $1,000 weekly during football season.

Your Greene County newspapers are partnering with Power Points to bring you the Ultimate Football Contest. It’s easy to enter. Each Friday in the daily papers and Thursday in the News-Current, an entry form will appear with the week’s games. There will be NFL and college games from which to choose.

Simply pick the winner of each game and list them on the entry form with your most confident pick first, descending to your least confident pick. For example, if you pick Ohio State to beat Army and have no doubts, list Ohio State in slot 16. If you are picking the Bengals to beat New England (ha!) but aren’t feeling too good about that pick, place it in slot one. There are 136 possible points each week. Whoever gets the most points wins.

Also, don’t forget to fill in the tiebreaker box. The first tiebreaker is total points scored in a particular game. The second tiebreaker is total offensive yards in a particular game. If there are ties after that, judges will draw one entry at random.

We need the entry form in our office at 1836 W. Park Square in Xenia by 10 a.m. each Wednesday to meet Power Points’ 2 p.m. Thursday deadline. During Thanksgiving week we need them a day earlier.

Make sure your name and contact info are legible, and remember there are two teams in New York, so make sure to distinguish Jets or Giants.
