More than one-third of Team OddsShark has a chance to take the group title heading into Week 17 of the SuperContest, with all of them chasing current leader Joe Ostrowski, who is trying to win it for the first time this year. Ostrowski came close three years ago, finishing second with 51 points behind team champion David Fucillo (53).
Seven other team members are within three points of Chicago radio personality Ostrowski (45.5 points), although he owns a 1.5-point lead over Team NESN’s Mike Cole, who resides in second place with 44. UFC commentator Jon Anik (43.5) is right behind them in third, followed by Sam Panayotovich, Kelly Stewart and OddsShark’s own Andrew Avery, who each have 43. James Alberino and 2017 group champ Paulo Antunes round out the six after Ostrowski who have an outside shot with 42.5 apiece.
Colts Most Popular SuperContest Play for Fourth Time in Five Weeks
The Indianapolis Colts (9-6) have a lot on the line in the Week 17 Sunday Night Football game when they visit the Tennessee Titans (9-6) as 3-point road favorites. Then again, so do the Titans, with the Sportsbook earning a playoff spot and possibly the AFC South title depending on how the Houston Texans (10-5) fare earlier in the day. For the fourth time in five weeks though, the Colts are the top consensus pick in the SuperContest, selected by 972 of the record 3,123 entrants (31 percent) in the field overall.
Bills and Browns Share Honor as Team OddsShark’s Favorite Picks
While Indy is one of the group’s favorites plays as well, nearly half the team is backing the Buffalo Bills (5-10) and Cleveland Browns (7-7-1) with 10 picks each. The Bills are hosting the Miami Dolphins (7-8) as 3.5-point home favorites, and the line has moved up to -5.5 at some sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. Meanwhile, the Browns are 6-point road underdogs visiting the Baltimore Ravens (9-6), and they are also the second-most popular consensus play in Week 17 with 904 selections (29 percent). The Bills rank third overall in the SuperContest, picked by 847 contestants (27 percent).
