  • SuperContest Week 8 thread: lines Wed./selections Sat./grade it all through weekend)

    This is the thread for Week 8 with the leaderboard that is posted on Tuesday, lines for the week that come out on Wednesday, then the consensus and selections on Saturday and then grading it all through the weekend. In case you're not aware, the SuperContest Classic drew a record 3,123 this season with the SuperContest Gold attracting 128 (after 94 in the inaugural season). First place is worth $1,422,214.20 with $517,168.80 for second and paying out to the Top 100; Gold is winner-take-all at $640,000.

    Last week, the Top 5 Most-Selected Teams went 4-1 (after back-to-back 1-4 weeks) and stands at 16-19 (45.7%) overall. Gold Top 5 went 3-1-1 for the second straight week and 17-14-4 overall.

    Here are the lines for Week 7 (locked in by the Westgate on Wednesday afternoon). For those who don't know, the favorite is listed first and then the underdog, followed by the spread in relation to the underdog...also, the numbers to the left of each team are for SuperContestants and their proxies submitting the plays (though it's automated on a kiosk at the Westgate as opposed to the old days when parlay-like cards were used and everyone had to fill in the circles on the correct team number):

    THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2018
    1 TEXANS* 5:20 PM 2 DOLPHINS +7.5
    SUNDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2018
    3 EAGLES 6:30 AM 4 JAGUARS +3
    5 STEELERS* 10:00 AM 6 BROWNS +8
    7 CHIEFS* 10:00 AM 8 BRONCOS +10
    9 BEARS* 10:00 AM 10 JETS +7

            Personal Gourmet moves into 1st place in #SuperContest at 32-8 (80%) and is guaranteed at least $7,500 of the aggregate $15,000 "1st Half Bonus" after Week 8 @SuperBookUSA @WestgateVegas; Personal Gourmet can only be caught by @Pigskin_Junkies if NE -13.5 covers on #MNF @VSiNLive


            Dave Tuley @ViewFromVegas
            In #SuperContestGold (which doesn't have any in-season bonuses, just the winner-take-all prize of $640,000), there's a four-way tie at 26.5 points with Sarahi Miller, JRich, Danny Polo 1 & Champion Iceman 2, but only Sarahi Miller has a play left this week on BUF +13.5 @VSiNLive

              #SuperContest News: Personal Gourmet & @Pigskin_Junkies will split the $15,000 "1st Half Bonus" for being co-leaders at 32-8 (80%) after Week 8 @SuperBookUSA @WestgateVegas; both went 5-0 this week but Personal Gourmet was in clubhouse while P_J needed NE -13.5 on #MNF @VSiNLive
