Riccobono Catches Kostos Atop Team OddsShark Standings After Week 8

Two fellow New Yorkers might be battling it out for the Team OddsShark title until the very end of the NFL regular season in the SuperContest at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. That’s because Anthony Riccobono just put together his fifth winning week in the last seven to tie Nick Kostos atop the group standings with nine to go.

Riccobono and Kostos are not running away with the team competition by any means, though, with seven others within 2.5 points of them for first place. Rob Pizzola has quietly won four weeks in a row along with six of seven to put himself in sole possession of third place while Hank Lockwood went 2-3 to drop into fourth, just a half-point behind him. Lockwood was one of 10 team members to suffer through a losing Week 8.

Matt Ufford has gone 7-3 the past two weeks to rise into fifth place in the group, a half-point ahead of Jon Anik, Paulo Antunes, Ben Eckstein and Randall the Handle, who are all sitting at the .500 mark through the first eight weeks. The other 15 team members are two games under .500 or worse and will need to turn things around quickly in order to have any shot at overtaking Kostos or Riccobono for the Team OddsShark lead.

The top performance for the team in Week 8 was by Frank Schwab, who went 4-1 to move up the group standings from 23rd out of 24 members into a tie for 16th. Schwab still trails the co-leaders by six points but picked better than both of them last week.

There has also been a change atop the overall standings in the world’s largest NFL handicapping contest, with Redwine moving ahead of Ripsaw with 30.5 out of a possible 40 points. Ripsaw went 2-2-1 to fall into second place, a half-point behind Redwine. The difference in those two places is worth more than $500,000.

The Top 5 consensus picks went 3-2 for their second winning week in a row and fourth this year as well, improving to 14-25-1 overall. Click here to see complete SuperContest Standings heading into Week 9 for the entire record field of 1,854 entrants.
