Team OddsShark Differs with SuperContest Week 13 Consensus Picks

There are just five weeks left in the SuperContest at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, and hopefully it is a good thing that Team OddsShark has only one team among their most popular NFL picks in Week 13. The SuperContest Top 5 Consensus Picks have been awful for most of this season but did go 5-0 in Week 12 for the first time since Week 1 of 2015. That brought them to 23-35-2 overall this year, and the team agrees with just the Detroit Lions (7-4) as one of their top picks this week.

The NFC North-leading Lions are 6-point road underdogs visiting the New Orleans Saints (5-6) on Sunday, and they were selected by a week-high 564 contestants (30 percent) out of the record 1,854 in the field. That includes six team members, also tying for the fourth-most popular play in the group. Detroit has gone 6-1 straight up and against the spread in its last seven games, according to the OddsShark NFL Database, and the team has also gone 5-2 ATS in its previous seven as a road underdog.

However, the two most popular NFL picks by Team OddsShark in Week 13 did not even rank among the Top 10 selections overall. That’s right, one-third of the team is backing the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-9) and another third is on the New York Jets (3-8).

The Jaguars (+4) and Jets (+2) are each listed as home underdogs and were chosen by eight members apiece, topping the Kansas City Chiefs (+4), who were selected seven times. The Chiefs (8-3) are coming off a 30-27 overtime win on the road last week against the Denver Broncos (7-4), and they visit the Atlanta Falcons (7-4) on Sunday. The Falcons are the second-most popular play overall, picked 516 times (28 percent).

Meanwhile, the Broncos visit the Jaguars as small road chalk despite starting rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch for the injured Trevor Siemian. Even Denver die-hard fan Kelly Stewart is riding with Jacksonville after taking her team in seven of the previous 12 weeks. Other group members backing the Jags include Clay Travis, Hank Lockwood and OddsShark’s own Jon Campbell. Lockwood is currently tied for second in the team standings with Ben Eckstein, and they are both a half-point behind leader Nick Kostos.
