Feeling like Jim Cantore while in quarantine? Think you’ve got an edge on the guys and girls in front of chromakey screens? Then DraftKings has the perfect contest for you!
It’s pretty straightforward: Pick the over/under on the projected high temperature in 14 cities this weekend, and win up to $1000! You can enter the contest here.
Right now there’s a storm front predicted to pass from the Great Lakes area down to the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday, which will be the determining factor in many cities in the Eastern and Central time zones on what the total will be. If you think that front increases in strength, you might want to go under here.
Of course another good strategy will be to wait as long as possible to enter this contest, as the closing time is 10 p.m. tonight. Forecasts get more accurate as the day continues, so keep an eye on the 9 p.m. updates and get your picks in barely on-time.
