  • SuperContest Week 16 thread: lines Wed./selections Sat./grade it all through weekend

    This is the thread for Week 16 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 2-3 for the fsixh straight week and stands at 38-37 (50.7%) overall. Gold Top 5 went 4-2 (that might not make sense but SF and NE tied for No. 5 with 31 selections apiece...they split so I'm using both for grading purposes) and is 41-30-5 (57.7%) overall.

    #SuperContest update: we have a tie for the lead with 2 weeks to go as Rush YYZ 2112 went 4-1 to catch @Pigskin_Junkies, who went 3-2, to both stand at 55-20 (73.3%); Team Cleveland 1 won with CAR +5.5 on #MNF to pull within half a point of the co-leaders at 54.5 points @VSiNLive

    In #SuperContestGold (the $5,000 version of SC Classic with 128 entries and a winner-take-all prize of $640,000), There Can Be Only 1 went 5-0 in Week 15 to move into sole possession of 1st place at 48-24-3 (66.7%), 1 point ahead of Pregame, 1.5 ahead of Lightning 2 @VSiNLive

    #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

    Here's the SuperContest leaderboard with Top 20 plus ties:

    These are the lines for Week 16 (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):
    SATURDAY, DECEMBER 22, 2018
    1 TITANS* 1:30 PM 2 REDSKINS +9.5
    3 CHARGERS* 5:20 PM 4 RAVENS +4.5
    SUNDAY, DECEMBER 23, 2018
    5 COWBOYS* 10:00 AM 6 BUCCANEERS +7.5
    7 PATRIOTS* 10:00 AM 8 BILLS +13
    9 FALCONS 10:00 AM 10 PANTHERS* +3.5
    11 DOLPHINS* 10:00 AM 12 JAGUARS +4
    13 COLTS* 10:00 AM 14 GIANTS +9.5
    15 EAGLES* 10:00 AM 16 TEXANS +2.5
    17 VIKINGS 10:00 AM 18 LIONS* +5.5

        Here are the number of times each team was selected in SC Classic...we'll put them into their head-to-head matchups and then grade the results through the weekend:

        Top 5 Most-Selected starts 0-1 with Chargers' loss...overall consensus 0-2 with Titans also failing to cover as 9.5-point home faves on the SC line (see next post).

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

        TB 371
        DAL 388 ***LOSS***

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

        KC 466
        SEA 884 ***WIN as No. 1 MOST-SELECTED TEAM***

          The non-PAT in Titans’ 25-16 win over Redskins has also impacted the #SuperContest; co-leaders @Pigskin_Junkies & Rush YYZ 2112 both had TEN -9.5 to start week 0-1; @pregame, which entered week 1 point behind There Can Be Only 1 in #SuperContestGold, also had TEN -9.5 @VSiNLive

            #SuperContest Top 5 Most-Selected Teams are 2-2 so far in Week 16 with wins on MIN -5.5 & CHI -4 but losses on LAC -4.5 & PHI -2.5 w/ SEA +2.5 coming up (FWIW: SC Top 5 has gone 2-3 each of last 6 weeks); #SuperContestGold Top 5 also 2-2 w/ SEA @VSiNLive

            #SuperContest lead is held by @Pigskin_Junkies, who is in clubhouse (1 week to go) after going 2-3 in Week 16 in a tough week for a lot of contenders; co-leader (coming into week) Rush YYZ 2112 is 0-4 & needs SEA +2.5 to get back within 1 point of the leader @VSiNLive

            In #SuperContestGold (the $5,000 version with a winner-take-all prize of $640,000), Danny Polo 1 went 4-1 to catch There Can Be Only 1 for lead at 51.5 points, but TCBO1 can reclaim lead w/ SEA +2.5 (if that loses, PrePay could make it a 3-way tie for lead w/ OAK +2.5) @VSiNLive

              #SuperContest Top 5 Most-Selected Teams went 3-2 (snapping six straight weeks of going exactly 2-3) with wins by No. 1 choice SEA +2.5, MIN -5.5 & CHI -4 but losses on LAC -4.5 & PHI -2.5, now 41-39 on season; #SuperContestGold Top 5 also 3-2, 44-32-5 (57.9%) on season @VSiNLive

              #SuperContest leader @Pigskin_Junkies is 57-23 (71.3%) after going 2-3 in Week 16 but that was good enough in a tough week for most contenders; Rush YYZ 2112 went 1-4 & is 1 point back; Team Cleveland 1 went 0-5 but is still in 3rd w/ Personal Gourmet (who has DEN -2.5) @VSiNLive

              In #SuperContestGold (the $5,000 version w/ a winner-take-all prize of $640,000), There Can Be Only 1 reclaimed sole possession of 1st place w/ SEA +2.5 on #SNF to go 3-2 in Week 16 and stand at 51-26-3 (66.2%); Danny Polo 1 went 4-1 and is 1 point back w/ 1 week to go @VSiNLive
