SuperContest: Jets, Giants Top Week 15

The final stretch is now underway in the SuperContest at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, with the Mini Contest kicking off in Week 15.

The winner-take-all Mini Contest awards the entrant who makes the most correct picks over the last three weeks $15,000. Last year, Kelly Stewart (aka kellyinvegas) of Team OddsShark finished 14-1 to take home the prize, and she is one of seven members on the New York Giants (6-7) against the unbeaten Carolina Panthers (13-0) as one of the top consensus NFL picks.

The Giants are 4.5-point home underdogs versus the Panthers, and they are also the second-most popular play among the 1,727 contestants in the SuperContest overall. New York was picked 555 times (32 percent), only one less than the other NFL team that calls MetLife Stadium home. The New York Jets (8-5) were the top consensus pick overall, selected 556 times as 3.5-point road favorites against the Dallas Cowboys (4-9).

Six members of Team OddsShark took the Jets, who did not even crack the group’s top five. Instead, it was a three-way tie between the Denver Broncos (10-3), Green Bay Packers (9-4) and Chicago Bears (5-8) as the team’s top play, with each of them selected by nine of the 21 group members (43 percent). The Packers were the third-most popular play in the SuperContest overall, picked by 551 contestants (32 percent).

Another NFC East team battling the Giants for the division title was very popular among group members too, as the Philadelphia Eagles (6-7) were also picked seven times (33 percent). The Eagles are 3.5-point home underdogs against the Arizona Cardinals (10-3), who were actually the fourth-most selected play by entrants overall.

The Cardinals were chosen by 442 contestants (26 percent), including Joe Ostrowski, who trails Team OddsShark leader David Fucillo by just one point in the group standings.

Fucillo took the Eagles, making that an important game between the two on Sunday Night Football. Ostrowski and Fucillo are both on the Bears and Packers and currently rank among the Top 50 in the SuperContest overall who will be paid out from a record prize pool of more than $2.5 million at the end of the NFL season.
