One of the highlights of the football season is GamingToday’s Bookies Battle, now in its 25th season. Perhaps the most difficult of all contests, the Bookies Battle requires bookmakers to pick every NFL regular season game on Monday morning, often times before a betting line has been established.
The bookmakers’ selections and their cumulative season records, as well as a consensus selection, are published every week in GamingToday and on the web during the regular NFL season.
