  • SuperContest Week 2 thread (standings Tue., lines Wed., consensus/leaders picks Sat.)

    For the 13th straight year, we'll be hosting a weekly SuperContest thread here in the VFV Forums where we'll post the updated standings each Tuesday, post the weekly lines each Wednesday, post the consensus & leaders' plays on Saturdays and then grade through the weekend.

    The 2019 SuperContest closed with a record 3,328 entries ($1,500 apiece), an increase of 205 (or 6.6%) more than last year’s 3,123. The SuperContest champion will win $1,469,644.80 (32% of prize pool of 3,328 entries, $1,500 apiece, minus 8% administrative fee) plus a championship ring; last year, Eric Kahane (alias Personal Gourmet) of Irvine, Calif., won $1,422,214.20. SuperContestGold ($5,000 winner-take-all version) closed with 117, a decrease of 11 (or 8.6%) from last year’s record of 128. The SuperContestGold champion will win $585,000 (winner-take-all, 100% of prize pool of 117 entries, $5,000 apiece) plus a championship ring; last year, George King (alias There Can Be Only 1 & @Auyeur on Twitter and also Squarepants for longtime VFV Forum members) of Las Vegas, won $640,00.

    In this opening post each week, I'll post the consensus results from the prior week: SuperContest Top 5 Most-Selected teams went 3-2, the overall consensus went a very poor 5-11 and all picks from all players were 8,288-8,307, 49.94%, h/t ComptrBob); SuperContestGold Top 5 went 2-3.

    I will normally post a condensed leaderboard (Top 10 or so) in the opening post, but ComptrBob did such a great job of compiling all the perfect records from Week 1 that I wanted to just quote his posts, so here's the list, which includes two members of VFV Nation: HULA BOY and ARMVIN!!!:

        Note the Supercontest Standings just posted on the Westgate site have 23 bogus "#NAME?" entries listed. GOLD Standings also have 3 bogus entries.

          Here are the Week 2 lines for the SuperContest and SuperContest Gold...for the unitiated, the numbers to the left of the teams are the order in which the teams are listed on the contest kiosks (and now on the mobile app) with favorites being the odd numbers and underdogs the even...these were more important when contestants and proxies needed to fill out parlay-like cards using the numbers for each team, but now they just click the number/team on the kiosk or app...home teams are marked with an asterisk and the spread is listed after the underdog:

            That's the conventional wisdom...however, there were 46 #SuperContest entrants that not only resisted what has been called the "free bingo square" but went full contrarian w/ NYJ +2.5 @SuperBookUSA; there were 2 such #SuperContestGold players @VSiNLive

            Hard NOT to take them especially this early knowing everyone else expects a free point

              #SuperContest Top 5 Most-Selected still 2-2 ATS w/ No. 1 choice CLE -2.5 on #MNF (taken by record 2.053 of the record 3,328 entrants); #SuperContestGold is 3-2 (DAL & PIT tied for No. 5, so including both) after ATL +1.5 cashed on #SNF w/ CLE -2.5 also pending @VSiNLive


              Dave Tuley @ViewFromVegas
              5 #SuperContest entrants (Dead Last, Phatcat, Rabbit Hunting The 801Crew & Tuco) can improve to 10-0 if CLE -2.5 covers on #MNF; otherwise they fall into 13-way tie w/ 7 players at 9-1 & Kool Gent (8-1 & went contrarian w/ NYJ +2.5) @SuperBookUSA @VSiNLive h/t ComptrBob
