    These are the lines for Week 15 (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, DECEMBER 13, 2018
    1 CHIEFS* 5:20 PM 2 CHARGERS +3.5
    SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2018
    3 TEXANS 1:30 PM 4 JETS* +6
    5 BRONCOS* 5:20 PM 6 BROWNS +3
    SUNDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2018
    7 VIKINGS* 10:00 AM 8 DOLPHINS +7
    9 BENGALS* 10:00 AM 10 RAIDERS +3
    11 RAVENS* 10:00 AM 12 BUCCANEERS +7.5
    13 COLTS* 10:00 AM 14 COWBOYS +3
    15 BILLS* 10:00 AM 16 LIONS +2.5
    17 BEARS* 10:00 AM 18 PACKERS +6
    19 GIANTS* 10:00 AM 20 TITANS +2.5
    21 JAGUARS* 10:00 AM 22 REDSKINS +7

      Here are the number of times each team was selected by the 3,123 entrants in the SuperContest (note: this is the first week of the $15,000 mini-contest that the 2,712 who registered by 4 p.m. PT on Labor Day are eligible to play in, so a lot more people are playing this week that has previously stopped submitting plays)...we'll break them down into head-to-head matchups so we can grade the results through the weekend:

      LAC 237 ***WIN***
      KC 221

      WAS 148
      JAX 298 ***LOSS***

      ARI 219

      =====================

      PHI 257

      Overall consensus dips to 8-7 with Rams' non-cover.

            You indicated that Buffalo was a consensus winner. The Bills were a 2 1/2 pt favorite and only won by 1 point.

              You used to post somewhere updated standings. Do you have the top 100 as of today. Was looking to see where 47 points stood going into last 2 weeks.

                        #SuperContest standings are based on points (1 point per win, 0.5 per push), but it's interesting to note that even though @Pigskin_Junkies & Rush YYZ 2112 are tied for 1st at 55-20 (73.3%), 3rd-place Team Cleveland 1 has 54.5 points but a higher win% at 53-19-3 (73.6%) @VSiNLive

                          I also replied to 2014 champion CH_ Ballers about whether or not their record was safe...


                          Dave Tuley @ViewFromVegas
                          Don't pop the champagne yet, @CH_Ballers! For those who don't know, they won the 2014 #SuperContest with a record 64.5 points by going 64-20-1 (76.19%); this year's co-leaders @Pigskin_Junkies & Rush YYZ 2112 (55-20) are both alive to top 'em by going 10-0


                          CH BALLERS @CH_Ballers
