There is now just one man atop the Team OddsShark leaderboard for the 2015 SuperContest at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. David Fucillo from SB Nation went 3-2 in Week 6 to move two full points ahead of Ryan Fowler from FOX Sports, who had more losers than winners for the first time this season in going 1-4.
Fucillo is also three points behind new overall leader Rounding Again for the grand prize of $906,675 awarded to the contestant who totals the most points after picking five NFL sides weekly over the entire 17-week season. The Top 50 places will be paid more than $2.5 million.
Fucillo is the lone member of Team OddsShark to not have a losing week after Fowler and Joe Ostrowski from 670 The Score in Chicago both fell from the ranks. Ostrowski went 5-0 in Week 5 but was 2-3 in Week 6, and he remains alone in third place, just 2.5 points behind Fucillo for the group lead.
Behind them, there is a four-way tie for fourth in the group standings between Clay Travis from FOX Sports, Aaron Nagler from CheeseheadTV, Pete Prisco from CBS Sports and Jason McIntyre from The Big Lead with 17.5 points each. Of that group, only McIntyre had a winning Week 6 at 3-2.
changes at bottom of contest standings
While the top of the Team OddsShark standings is pretty much the same except for Fucillo claiming sole possession of first place, there are some changes at the bottom. Dan Katz from Barstool Sports and Todd Fuhrman from CBS SportsLine each enjoyed their second consecutive winning weeks to move out of the cellar where they have been tied for most of the year.
Now Randall the Handle is there by himself after going 1-4 for the second straight week. Kelly Stewart (aka kellyinvegas) also continued her struggles by going 1-4 for the third time in four weeks following a promising 7-3 start. Stewart and Katz (aka BarstoolBigCat) are both one point ahead of Randall with 13 points apiece.
The OddsShark Super Computer finds itself right in the middle of the pack in 11th place with 16.5 points after going 3-2 thanks to the Philadelphia Eagles crushing the New York Giants 27-7 as 4.5-point home favorites on Monday Night Football.
Nick Kostos (4-1) from CBS SportsLine, Fuhrman (3-1-1) and Ben Eckstein (3-1-1) from America’s Line were the only team members who performed better in Week 6.
