  • SuperContest 2020-Week 17 (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 $435,623.20 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 3-2 in #NFL Week 16 w/ wins by PIT +1.5, GB -3 & BUF -7 but losses on LAR +1 & AZ -5 (Top 5 is 40-39-3 on year, 50.6%; includes ties for No. 5 picks); #SuperContestGold Top 5 went 4-2 (46-35-3 on year, 56.8%)

    #SuperContest longtime leader ODGMB2 reclaimed lead when BUF -7 covered on #MNF, improving him to 51-24-5 (68%, 53.5 points); YUGO 77 is half a point back after going 5-0; #SuperContestGold leader BRETTFAVRE 44 went 4-1, has 52 points & a 2-point lead

        ODBMG2 (alias of professional poker players David Baker & Mark Gregorich aka @audavidb & @markgregorich) clinched the #SuperContest title when their nearest pursuer YUGO77 lost w/ Cardinals -2.5; first prize is $435,623.20 plus the championship ring

        BRETTFAVRE 44 has clinched $360,000 winner-take-all prize in #SuperContestGold ($5,000 buy-in version of #SuperContest) as he won early games w/ BAL -12.5 & DET +6.5; no one else in 72-player field can catch him; BRETTFAVRE 44 nearly won Gold in 2017

              Thanks, Archie8...note: 99th-100th is actually 99th-116th, but since it only pays through Top 100, spots 99 & 100 get split 18 ways, which is why that payout is so low (lowest I ever remember!).
