Kostos Matches Two of Top 5 Consensus Picks in Week 3 of SuperContest

Team OddsShark leader Nick Kostos prides himself on going against the flow and fading the betting public when it comes to picking games. Unfortunately for Kostos, he is in agreement with two of the Top 5 consensus NFL picks in Week 3 of the SuperContest at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. Those Top 5 consensus plays went 0-5 last week to fall to 3-7 so far this season, much to the chagrin of Kostos, the CBS Sports host who has gone an impressive 8-2 to also tie for 23rd in the field overall.

Kostos had been on the other side of many of the top consensus picks through the first two weeks. But this week, he is riding with the Jacksonville Jaguars and San Diego Chargers, who rank fourth and fifth, respectively, among the most selected teams by the record 1,854 contestants in the SuperContest. The Jaguars are listed as a Pick’em on the Week 3 SuperContest Card hosting the Baltimore Ravens while the Chargers are 3-point road underdogs visiting the winless Indianapolis Colts. Ironically, Jacksonville was the third-most popular play last week at San Diego and lost 38-14 as a 3-point dog. 

The Jags are tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers as the top consensus pick among Team OddsShark, with each team chosen by nine of the 24 members. The Steelers are also the top consensus play in the SuperContest overall, selected a season-high 663 times (36 percent). The previous most picked team was the Seattle Seahawks (541 times or 29 percent) as 4.5-point road favorites against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2. The Rams upset the Seahawks 9-3 in their first game in Los Angeles since 1994.

One pick Kostos has to be very happy about though is the Buffalo Bills. He also picked the Bills among his five NFL picks as 4-point home underdogs hosting the Arizona Cardinals, who are the second-most popular consensus play overall. The Cardinals were picked 536 times (29 percent) while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were right behind them, selected 502 times (27 percent) as 5.5-point home favorites hosting the Rams.
