  • SuperContest 2020-Week 6 (standings Tuesday, lines Wednesday, consensus/leaders' picks Sunday)

    We've been doing these weekly SuperContest threads since ViewFromVegas.com debuted in 2007 and we were the only site posting the SuperContest spreads online as the then-Las Vegas Hilton was reluctant to post them on its own website. There are still a ton of readers who still come here every week to get the updated standings on Tuesdays, the official contest lines on #SuperContest, the consensus and leaders' picks on Saturdays and the results after the games are played...and then return for the next week's thread.

    The SuperContest drew just 1,172 entries for the 2020 season, down from the record 3,328 entries last year, at $1,500 apiece. The reasons were many, starting with the pandemic that kept a lot of people from coming to visit Las Vegas to enter and also from the increased competition of the second-year Circa Sports Million. But it's still the SuperContest and will have a first-place prize of $360,000 plus the championship ring. The SuperContest Gold, the $5,000 winner-take-all version, closed with 72 entries, down from 117, and will have a $360,000 first-place prize.

    #SuperContest Top 5 Most-Selected Teams went 4-1 in NFL Week 5 (13-13 on season as there was a tie for pick No. 5 in Week 4 and both lost) w/ wins on PIT -7, CLE +1.5, AZ -7 & MIN +7; lone loss was on CIN +12.5; SuperContestGold Top 5 went 3-2 in Week 5 and is 14-11 (56%) on season.

    Here's the leaderboard after Week 5 and heading into Week 6 as 1st Quarter winner ODBMG2 increased lead to 2 points over 2nd place GOOSBUMPS with 4 tied behind them in 3rd place...but a long way to go:

    In SuperContestGold, BRETTFAVRE 444 (I'm assuming it's same entrant that nearly won this contest the first year it was held -- and suffered a #BadBeat that otherwise would have had him in the lead going into the final week) went 5-0 to move into 1st place in the winner-take-all contest. Some other familiar names also near the top:

        #SuperContest leader is ODBMG, who was the 1st Quarter leader, at 25-5; GOOSBUMPS is in 2nd place at 23-5-2 (24 contest points as pushes worth 1/2 point); SQUAD GOALS & CHATT TOWN 117 are tied for 3rd at 22-7-1; #SuperContestGold leader is ANDREWSCALZ12 @SuperBookSports @VSiNLive

        #SuperContest Top 5 Most-Selected went 2-3 in #NFL Week 6 (15-16 overall) w/ wins on PIT -3 & KC -3.5 but losses on GB pick-'em, BAL -7.5 & LAR -3; #SuperContest Top 5 went 3-2 (17-13 overall) as it had SF +3 instead of LAR -3 to account for extra win @SuperBookSports @VSiNLive
