Kostos Back in Sole Possession of First Place for Team OddsShark

Nick Kostos rebounded from his first losing performance of the season by going 3-2 in Week 5 of the SuperContest at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, sitting alone in the top spot for Team OddsShark again while two former co-leaders dropped back after struggling with their NFL picks. Anthony Riccobono and Randall the Handle shared the group lead at 12-8 heading into Week 5 but went 2-3 and 1-4, respectively. Riccobono is now tied for second place in the team standings with Ben Eckstein – who went 4-1 in Week 5 while Randall fell into a tie for fourth with Rob Pizzola and Paulo Antunes.

Kostos, Pizzola and Antunes led 14 of 24 team members who enjoyed winning weeks, including six who went 4-1. Following consecutive 1-4 weeks, Antunes has gone 4-1 each of the past two while the OddsShark Super Computer went 3-2 for the third time in a row. Other team members who went 4-1 in Week 5 besides Eckstein and Antunes were Matt Ufford, Ty Shalter, Jon Anik and Dan Lyons. Ufford, Schalter and Anik all jumped into a tie for seventh along with the Computer and Hank Lockwood.

The SuperContest Top 5 consensus picks also bounced back from three consecutive losing weeks by posting a 3-2 mark despite losing the two most popular plays overall. They had lost 16 of 17, going 1-14 in Weeks 2-4, after getting off to a strong 3-0 start.

The Cincinnati Bengals were the most picked team by the record field of 1,854 contestants, selected a season-high 841 times as 1-point road favorites against the Dallas Cowboys. But the Bengals lost 28-14 at Dallas while the Philadelphia Eagles – the second-most popular play after being chosen 568 times – also fell 24-23 on the road to the Detroit Lions as 3-point chalk. The three Top 5 consensus winners in Week 5 were the Minnesota Vikings (-6.5), Pittsburgh Steelers (-7) and New York Giants (+7.5). The Giants used a late score to cover versus the Green Bay Packers in a 23-16 loss.
