    This is the thread for Week 9 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.

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 5-1 (9-1 last 2 weeks after going 2-8 on back-to-back 1-4 Weeks 5-6) and stands at 21-19 (52.5%) overall. Gold Top 5 also went 5-0 after back-to-back 3-1-1 week and is 22-14-4 (61.1%) overall.

    Here's a public-service announcement that Ray from the SuperBook asked me to pass on...plan accordingly this week:


    Dave Tuley @ViewFromVegas
    Ray @SuperBookUSA @WestgateVegas also gave @VSiNLive a NOTICE for #SuperContest Players and Proxies: there will only be 5 contest windows instead of 6 next weekend due to @BreedersCup, plus @SEMASHOW is at nearby LV Convention Center, so expect more traffic & crowded parking lots

      Here are the lines for Week 9 (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, NOVEMBER 1, 2018
      1 49ERS* 5:20 PM 2 RAIDERS +2.5
      SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2018
      3 VIKINGS* 10:00 AM 4 LIONS +4.5
      5 CHIEFS 10:00 AM 6 BROWNS* +8
      7 RAVENS* 10:00 AM 8 STEELERS +3
      9 PANTHERS* 10:00 AM 10 BUCCANEERS +6
      11 DOLPHINS* 10:00 AM 12 JETS +3
      13 REDSKINS* 10:00 AM 14 FALCONS +1.5
