  • Results of Week 1 of FREE ViewFromVegas NCAA & NCAA "mirror" contests

    Hey, VFV Nation...this is the weekly thread that we posting 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 for 2 more weeks through Thanksgiving Weekend (I pick the 25 games those weeks). The season-long prize is two rooms 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).

    Having explained all that...the results of Week 1 is that no one went 7-0, so there is no weekly prize. Here is the Week 1 Top 10 leaderboard with ties (congrats to longtime VFV Forum members stan254us & taketheredeye, plus newbie Kamsky1914):

    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 rooms 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 Week 1, we had 3 contestants go 5-0 (Buckeye Jeff, dr jay & masterc), so we go to the tiebreaker and that was won by dr jay with a score of +96, which might be a record for the NFL contest. I recall having scores that high with the NCAA contest with 7 games, but that's 19.2 points-per-game margin of victory in the NFL, led by the Ravens covering by a whopping 42.5 points in their 59-10 rout of the Dolphins and the Titans covering by 35 in their 43-13 rout of the Browns). Congrats to dr jay and I owe him dinner next time he's in Vegas or a VFV shirt.

    Oh, and the Week 2 lines are available on the contest website (they'll be posted each Wednesday afternoon just like the Vegas contests). Note: if you missed Week 1, you can still get in both contests (you have to register separately at the contest site as it's not linked to the VFV Forums, just use your same username and password) and play for weekly prizes.
