Super Contest Top 5 Consensus Picks Going for Fifth Consecutive Winning Week

A month ago, entrants in the Super Contest at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook dreaded seeing their plays listed among the Top 5 consensus NFL picks when released on Saturday. Now they do not know what to think after the Top 5 have gone on an impressive 15-4-1 run to improve to 30-37-3 overall this season.

Team OddsShark seems to be in agreement with the consensus for the most part in Week 15, although the group’s top plays are inverted from the Top 5 overall. The NFC North-leading Detroit Lions (9-4) are 4-point road underdogs against the New York Giants (9-4) and the team’s most popular pick, selected by nine of the 24 members. Detroit is ranked No. 5 according to the consensus, chosen by 433 of the record 1,854 contestants in the field or 23 percent. The No. 1 consensus pick is the Pittsburgh Steelers (8-5) as 3-point road favorites versus the Cincinnati Bengals (5-7-1), taken a week-high 603 times (33 percent), although just four team members selected them.

The second-most popular play for Team OddsShark is the Baltimore Ravens (7-6) as 5.5-point home chalk hosting the struggling Philadelphia Eagles (5-8). The Ravens need to be careful of looking ahead to a Christmas Day showdown with the Steelers that could determine the AFC North crown, and seven team members are backing them in this spot along with 456 overall (25 percent) to rank as the No. 4 consensus pick.

The big question is, will the Top 5 consensus revert back to previous form or stay hot? Frank Schwab currently sits atop the Team OddsShark Standings with 38.5 points, eight behind overall leader MAC SPORTS INC. in the race for the grand prize worth nearly $900,000. Schwab shares two of his five NFL picks with the consensus (Lions and Oakland Raiders) and is also on the opposite side of two of them (Bengals and Dallas Cowboys). That might be the safest place to be at this point as he looks to increase his lead over Anthony Riccobono and the other top contenders in the group chasing him.
