  • Results of Week 6 of FREE ViewFromVegas NCAA & NCAA "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 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).

    Without further adieu, there were two perfect 7-0s in the NCAA contest last week (Joey the Wise and juicebox) so we go to the tiebreaker of whose teams covered by the most combined points and that was Joey the Wise by just 3 points (51.5-48.5). Congrats to both, but Joey the Wise wins the weekly prize of dinner with yours truly or a VFV shirt. As for the season-long contest, juicebox leadfrogged from a tie for 6th place to sole possession of 1st place with his 7-0, moving 1 game ahead of afelder as we've hit the halfway point of our 12-week contest:

    juicebox 28.0
    afelder 27.0
    donrega 26.0
    uniqorn 26.0
    spam55 25.0
    Texan73 25.0
    Mattysharp 25.0
    mr pixter 25.0
    philly107 25.0
    champs 25.0


    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 6, we had just 6 players go a perfect 5-0 (Bama06, copperheadnu2, doc Clocker, FabCo, mattyiceeee and thebiscuitman), so again we go to the tiebreaker and that was won by FabCo at +50.5, topping thebiscuitman (+46.5) and copperheadnu2 (+44.5). Congrats to all 6, but FabCo wins the dinner with yours truly or a VFV shirt. As for the season-long contest, Aztec10 and taketheredeye both went 3-2 to stay tied for 1st place, though FabCo and copperheadnu2 both moved up with their perfect weeks:

    Aztec10 24.0
    Taketheredeye 24.0
    copperheadnu2 20.5
    FabCO 20.5
    str8outtadurango 19.5
    mattyiceeee 19.5
    Rich2357 19.5
    Mr.OutsideVegas 19.0
    senator L 19.0
