  • SuperContest Week 5 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. 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 like longtime VFV Forum member Squarepants (as There Can Be Only 1).

    In this opening post each week, I'll post the consensus results from the prior week: SuperContest Top 5 Most-Selected teams went 0-5 in Week 4 as all the popular sides went down in flamesl in fact, the Top 7 were 1-6 with the only winner being the Saints (which was against the Cowboys, the No. 4 selection); for the season, the Top 5 drops to 10-10; SuperContestGold Top 5 was actually a Top 7 with a four-way tie for No. 4 and went 3-4, so we have the Gold Top "Picks" (can't really call it Top 5 anymore LMEAO) at 13-10.

    #SuperContest $15,000 "1st Quarter Bonus" will be split ($7,500 apiece) by TUCO & ER @ JAR, who are both 19-1 @SuperBookUSA; both entered this Week 4 at 14-1 and TUCO was in the clubhouse after completing his 5-0 week but ER @ JAR needed NO +2.5 on #SNF to force the tie @VSiNLive

    This is where we put the current week's lines for the SuperContest and SuperContest Gold...for the unintiated, 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:

    THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2019
    1 SEAHAWKS* 5:20 PM 2 RAMS +1
    SUNDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2019

            TUCO and ER @ JAR (who were the #SuperContest co-leaders at 19-1 -- believed to be a record -- after #NFL Week 4) both went 4-1 in Week 5 to stay tied at 23-2 (92%); TUCO was 4-1 Sunday and ER @ JAR matched him with SF -3.5 on #MNF @SuperBookUSA @VSiNLive

            #SuperContest Top 5 Most-Selected Teams went 3-2 in Week 5, improve to 13-12 on season; Bears -5.5 lost as No. 1 choice, Vikings -5.5 won as No. 2 choice, Buccaneers +3.5 lost as No. 3 choice, Patriots -15.5 & Packers +3.5 both won as No. 4 & No. 5 choices, respectively @VSiNLive


            As ComptrBob posted above, MIYATIA, TEAM CLEVELAND & WALTER PAYTON are tied for the SuperContest Gold at 19-6 (76%). Gold Top Picks (no longer called Top 5 as Gold had four-way tie for No. 4 choice in Week 4, so we just call it Gold Top Picks) went 2-2-1 in Week 5 and are now 15-12-1 overall.
