  • ***FREE ViewFromVegas NFL & NCAA Contests (mirroring SuperContest & College Pick'Em)

    OK, here we go with the FREE ViewFromVegas NFL & NCAA Contests for the 2018 football season. Welcome back to all our longtime followers and contest players at this time of year,

    Note: if you don't already have a username/password on the dedicated contest site at http://contests.viewfromvegas.com, then you'll have to register there. Also note: that's a separate registration on that site, it's not automatically linked to your username/password here in the VFV Forums, but please use the same alias so everyone knows who you are!

    The lines are posted for the NCAA contest (make 7 selections from the list of 25 games chosen by William Hill)...the NFL lines will be later this afternoon (you'll make 5 picks a week against the same lines used in the Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest). I'll add more rules here later today, but here are more details from the contest site:

    ViewFromVegas.com Contest Site (http://contests.viewfromvegas.com)

    This is where we host and run our contests for the ViewFromVegas Forums. We do two annual football contests that mirror the top Vegas contests each year (the original intention being so people outside Vegas could play along and see how they would fare -- and perhaps lead them to come to Vegas to play for real!). Our NFL contest mirrors the Westgate SuperContest as it uses 5 weekly picks against the same contest lines and deadlines (11 a.m. PT Saturdays -- though all 5 plays are due by kickoff of the Thursday night game if using that game). The NCAA contest mirrors the William Hill College Pick'Em Contest as it uses 7 weekly picks against the same contest lines for the 10 weeks of that contest, but then we continue our contest through Thanksgiving Weekend. We also plan to do a College Bowl Contest this season and our annual Super Bowl prop contest.

    Full rules and prize information can be found in our weekly "VFV Football Contest Update" threads in the View From Vegas [ignore that dead link for now LMEAO] Forums, and that's also where we'll announce weekly winners and updated standings, though you can always find the updated leaders in the STANDINGS tab above.

    Thanks for playing our contests and best of luck.

    Yours truly,
    Dave Tuley

      Flew in Vegas this week to enter The Super Contest at the Westgate. Under “Pep Talk Dave” was in the Super Contest in 1997 and 1998 when it a locals only event. It’s a honor to call Dave Tuley a friend for over 20 yrs. and I now live in Winter Park, Fla. John Kelly of EOG gaming did a story about me on New Yrs Day, 1998 in the Daily Racing Form that Dave later wrote for several yrs. Dave Tuley also does a Colum every Fri. In the New York Post Sports. Go to New Youk Post. Com / Sports Of you can get the New York Post on your phone app. It’s a honor to complete against over 3,000 in The Super Contest. David Corcoran, Winter Park, Florida.

            Just like in old VFV forums, there's a category for "Coverage of 2018 Vegas Football Contests" and every week there's a dedicated SuperContest thread with the information you're looking for. I do miss the part of the old forums where you could just click DISCUSSIONS and see all posts from all sub-categories, so agree with you on that part of the navigation, but hoping it's still more user-friendly overall.
