Browser Compatibility Issues
The picks software here at ProLineup.com is cross-browser compatible in most cases. However, the software does not work on MSN in some cases.
To make your picks, there are a few browsers that work well. Try either:
- Mozilla Firefox – Fully Tested, Works Perfect
- Google Chrome – Fully Tested, Some Restrictions
For good results, although not fully functional you may also use:
- Internet Explorer
- The best browser to use for ProLineup.com Pick’em games for both MAC and PC is Mozilla FireFox followed by Chrome. Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari are only partially supported.
- Known Issues –Safari and Opera browsers are only partially supported. These browsers cannot handle certain CSS styles within the pick’em forms, so it is more difficult to determine which Confidence values have been used when making your Confidence Selections. Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera browsers work fine otherwise, just not as convenient.
- Solutions – We suggest downloading Mozilla FireFox or for a slightly less user friendly experience, download Chrome. These are excellent, free browsers that have been fully tested here at ProLineup.com.
Firefox has considerably better user features for making Confidence picks. When selecting a confidence value in the drop-down list, Firefox will indicate which values have already been used. As of 2018, all other browsers only have partial support for styles within drop-down lists.
How to Play

Select your League from the Drop-Down Menu in the Upper-Right area of your screen. Upon selecting the League you wish to make picks in, the League Home will appear. Under the section labeled “Make Picks”, you may select the teams you wish to pick by simply clicking on the team’s image.
If you are in a “Confidence League” you will also need to select different confidence values for each game. You will do so by clicking on the Confidence selection box for each game and simply click the Confidence value you wish to place on that game.
Basically, the Confidence value reflects how much confidence you have in your pick.
- All confidence values must be unique.
- Place the highest Confidence value on the team you think will most easily win.
- Place the lowest Confidence value on the team you think has the toughest match-up.
- Your score will be the Confidence Value of your Correct Picks.
If your Pool uses the Spread option, the Spread is applied to the Favorite Team.
- Example 1: If the Favorite Spread is -2.5, it means that Team is a 2.5 point Favorite and if your League uses the spread, that Team must win by 3 points or more to win the game.
- Example 2: If the Favorite Spread is -4, it means that Team is a 4 point Favorite and if your League uses the spread, that Team must win by 5 or more to win the game.
If you have made your picks for a given week then leave the League Home page, your picks and confidence values should be visible when you return to the League Home page for the given week.
All ties, in all pools are considered a loss. With or without the spread, you must choose a winner.
You cannot choose a tie in our Pick ’em pools.
