  • Results of Week 13 of our FREE ViewFromVegas NCAA (final) & NFL "mirror" contests

    Hello VFV Nation...this is the weekly thread that we post to give the weekly winners and update the leaderboards of our popular NFL & NCAA contests that we host at our dedicated contest site at http://contests.viewfromvegas.com and http://contests.viewfromvegas.net. Our NCAA contest mirrors the College Pick'em at William Hill as players make 7 picks a week from 25 games picked by WillHill. The weekly deadline is 8 a.m. PT Saturdays (so everyone can see everyone's selections if they want in advance of the early games that start at noon ET/9 a.m. PT. Their contest ends after 10 weeks but we continue it through Thanksgiving Weekend (I pick the 25 games those weeks). The season-long prize is two nights at a Vegas hotel, dinner for 2 with yours truly and a ViewFromVegas shirt. Second place is dinner for 2 with yours truly and a ViewFromVegas shirt. There is also a weekly prize of dinner with yours truly or a VFV shirt if you're not going to visit Vegas in the next year. For a weekly winner to be provided, the top score must be 7-0. In case of a tie, the weekly winner will be the 7-0 entrant whose teams cover by the most combined points. You are allowed to win multiple weekly prizes in the same season, but only once via tiebreaker (if someone wins a second time via tiebreaker, the prize will go to the 2nd-highest tiebreak score).

    We didn't have a perfect 7-0 in the NCAA contest, so no weekly winner, but we crowned our season-long-champion as Texan73 went 4-3 over the Thanksgiving Weekend and held on when both juicebox & spam55 had a chance to catch him with Army at Hawaii late Saturday night/early Sunday morning when we announced the champ! Texan73 wins 2 nights at a Vegas hotel, dinner for 2 with yours truly & a ViewFromVegas Shirt...juicebox and Spam55 tied for 2nd place and I'll give them each dinner for 2 with yours truly and a VFV Shirt: Here's the final Top 10...congrats to all on a fine college football regular season, and now we can all look forward to the BOWL CONTEST that will be announced after the bowls are determined this upcoming Sunday.

    Our NFL contest mirrors the SuperContest at the Westgate Las Vegas as players make 5 picks a week from the full NFL card vs. the Westgate's contest lines. The weekly deadline is 1 a.m. PT Saturdays (just like the "real" SuperContest). The season-long prize is two nights at a Vegas hotel, dinner for 2 with yours truly and a ViewFromVegas shirt. Second place is dinner for 2 with yours truly and a ViewFromVegas shirt. There is also a weekly prize of dinner with yours truly or a VFV shirt if you're not going to visit Vegas in the next year. For a weekly winner to be provided, the top score must be 5-0. In case of a tie, the weekly winner will be the 5-0 entrant whose teams cover by the most combined points. You are allowed to win multiple weekly prizes in the same season, but only once via tiebreaker (if someone wins a second time via tiebreaker, the prize will go to the 2nd-highest tiebreak score).

    In NFL Week 13, there were 7 perfect 5-0 scores (Deano, gcotton08, jpfitz7, macdaddy, TARB, Wags2Riches & yisman), so we go to the tiebreaker of whose teams covered by the most points. All 7 averaged covering by 10 points, but yisman's team covered by 80.5, led by the Rams (+24), Chiefs (+21), Titans (+16.5) and Buccaneers (+16). Congrats to all, but yisman wins his choice of dinner with yours truly or a ViewFromVegas.com Shirt.

    And here's the updated NFL leaderboard with donrega catching Aztec10 on the lead but everyone in Top 10 is within 3 points of the lead with 4 weeks to go in the season:


    Aztec10 40.5
    donrega 40.5
    Rush4life 39.5
    dubgeedubgee 39.0
    Mr.OutsideVegas 38.5
    Buckets 38.5
    Suntandan 38.0
    str8outtadurango 38.0
    copperheadnu2 38.0
    jpfitz7 37.5
