Football Pontoon Azure Architecture

As you may have seen from my recent posts on LinkedIn, I have been creating a new website called FootballPontoon.  It is a game you can play with your friends or work colleagues where each player picks a unique team from the Football League, pays a weekly ante and the first team to get to 21 wins the cash.  At that point, you all go back to zero and the next round starts. It is a good game to play and can even attract people who are not into Football as it is pretty much set and forget.  It was a game my wife's work played and I was always interested in her teams performance.  After hearing that it was managed manually (yep, someone has to manually enter scores for each team into spreadsheet each week!), I thought that it could be done better.
