Harry Hanging Tough After Week 10 in Ultimate Football Challenge

With just seven weeks remaining in the pro and college seasons, Harry Gagnon continues to shine for Team Odds Shark in the Golden Nugget’s Ultimate Football Challenge, which is the only combo handicapping contest in Las Vegas. Gagnon’s ‘Cuseboy entry had been near the top of the standings throughout the first two months, and a 4-3 mark in Week 10 has kept him there with a 42-26-2 overall record and 43 points out of 70 possible. The leader is four points ahead of him with 47 at 46-22-2.

Gagnon’s four winners in Week 10 were the Washington Huskies (-10) and LSU Tigers (+6.5) in college football and the Miami Dolphins (+10) and Pittsburgh Steelers (+3.5) in the NFL. He lost with the TCU Horned Frogs (+2.5), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-4.5) and Cincinnati Bengals (+10.5). Team Odds Shark’s other three entrants in the Ultimate Football Challenge went a combined 7-12-2, with “Cousin Sal” Iacono going 3-4 to fall into a tie for 103rd overall at 37-32-1. The Szokoli brothers – Darren and Brian – each went 2-4-1, and neither of them is ranked among the top 200 of 282 total contestants.

However, two more Team Odds Shark members put together their best performances of the season in the NFL-only Circa Sports Million. Joe Fortenbaugh went 4-0-1 on his five pro football picks in Week 10 while Pamela Maldonado was right behind him at 3-1-1.

Fortenbaugh improved to 26-23-1 overall with four winners that included the Dolphins (+10), Steelers (+3.5), Chicago Bears (-2.5) and Minnesota Vikings (+3), and he ended up with a push on the Buffalo Bills (+3). He is also one of the leading contenders for the third-quarter “MVP” prize of $143,750 after going 8-1-1 the past two weeks. Meanwhile, Maldonado had the Bills and Steelers too, plus two more underdog winners in the Arizona Cardinals (+4.5) and Seattle Seahawks (+6.5) as she moved to 17-31-2 overall.

There were not any notable performances by the team’s four entrants in Week 10 of the Westgate SuperContest, but Clay Travis did finish strong in the William Hill College Pick’em. Travis needed to go 5-2 on his seven college football picks to get to the .500 mark at 35-35, and that is exactly what he did in Week 10. The two co-champions of that contest both went 45-25, and each walked away with $41,925.
