If players in a head-to-head matchup score the same number of points, the winner will be determined by the player on the team that wins the game. For example:

  • Jimmy Butler (Miami Heat) vs Lebron James (Los Angeles Lakers)
    • Both players score 28 points
    • Lakers win the game
      • Therefore, Lebron James would win the head to head matchup

If a player in a matchup does not play in the designated game (e.g. injury, load management, trades, etc.) they will be automatically swapped out for another player on the same team.

The new player selected will have the next-lowest PPG (points per game average) on the team, however the substitution is at the sole discretion of the NBA.

See full Contest Rules for more information.

If an entire game where a matchup is taking place is cancelled or rescheduled for ANY reason, it will be removed from the Head to Head results. This game will not count towards any scoring or affect any streaks.

Please see full Contest Rules for more information.

Head to Head matchups will be available for picks every Tuesday at 10am EST. Users can make their picks for any matchup at anytime during that week prior to that game start time. Once that game has started, the matchup is no longer available for users to make picks.

There are 10 weekly prize winners, 3 longest streak prizes, and 20 season long winners - in total there will be over 200 prizes awarded! Please see full Contest Rules for more information and the full prize list.

A "streak" is defined by the correct number of guesses (wins) in a row, based on the order of the matchups being displayed on the website from top to bottom.

Streaks carry over from week to week (within each of the three periods) and the longest streak in a period will win a $5,000 CDN prize!

There are three streak periods. The three periods are: December 6, 2022 to January 16, 2023; January 17, 2023 to February 27, 2023; and February 28, 2023 to April 10, 2023.
