Cole Catches Fire to Put Heat on Top Two for Team OddsShark in Super Contest

For the second time in three years, Team OddsShark could have the Mini Contest winner in the Super Contest at the  Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. Mike Cole has Team NESN up to third place in the group standings and tied for first in the Mini Contest after going 9-0-1 the past two weeks. The Mini Contest is a winner-take-all competition over the last three weeks of the season with first place paying out $20,000 this year. Two years ago, Kelly Stewart won $15,000 for finishing 14-1 over the final stretch.

Cole was sitting in 15th place out of the 24 members of Team OddsShark before the Mini Contest began, but a perfect 5-0 Week 16 also has him within one point of group leader Anthony Riccobono and a half-point behind Frank Schwab of Shutdown Corner for second. Both Riccobono and Schwab are coming off 3-2 performances, two of eight members who had that identical record last week with 11 posting winning marks overall.

Dan Katz (a.k.a. Barstool BigCat) of Barstool Sports and last year’s group winner David Fucillo each went 4-1 to tie for the second-best record for the team in Week 16. Katz jumped from tied for 10th to tied for fourth along with Barstool’s Hank Lockwood, Paulo Antunes and Matt Ufford in the group standings while Fucillo’s best effort of the year was not enough to get him out of the cellar. Antunes and Ufford both went 3-2 as well.

Week 16 was not as kind to OddsShark’s very own Jon Campbell (a.k.a. Jonny OddsShark), who went 0-5 for the second time this season. Campbell dropped from 10th to 18th in the group standings while Stewart, Ben Eckstein, Jon Anik, Nick Kostos, Ryan Fowler and Pete Prisco also fell a few spots after each went 1-4 last week. Stewart, Eckstein and Anik were three of the nine members who had the Detroit Lions (+7) against the Dallas Cowboys in the Monday Night Football matchup.

The Cowboys routed the Lions 42-21, keeping the Top 5 Consensus Picks from going 5-0. The consensus picks still improved to 36-40-4 while overall leader ORANGE CRUSH had Dallas and went 3-2 to move to a 51-26-3 mark (52.5) heading into Week 17.
