Just because we've argued about it in the past, and the rules underwent some changes over the years, here's what I believe the final iteration was:

1. Picked both teams, got winner correct
2. Picked both teams, got winner wrong
3. Picked winner correctly
4. Picked loser correctly
5. Closest to individual scores
6. Closest to predicted margin of victory


Rule 5 used to be "closest to total score", but that led to the ugly possibility that someone who predicted 60-0 would beat someone who predicted 33-28 if the final score wound up being 33-27.
