Team OddsShark leader David Fucillo from SB Nation continued his winning ways in the SuperContest at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, jumping all the way up into a tie for 11th place overall after going 4-1 in Week 9.
The Top 50 places pay out in the largest football handicapping contest in the world, with the winner taking home $906,675 based on a record 1,727 contestants entering this year at $1,500 each.
Fucillo has not had a losing record in any week so far, which has been one of the keys to his success this year. He bounced back after going 2-2-1 in Week 8, losing only one of his five weekly NFL picks for the fourth time.
Fucillo also went 4-1 in each of the first three weeks of the SuperContest to move to the top of the group standings, sharing the early lead with Ryan Fowler from FOX Sports.
Fowler has since fallen into third place though after suffering losing weeks in three of the past four, while Nick Kostos from CBS SportsLine has caught fire during that same stretch to overtake him for second.
Kostos has gone 4-1 in four consecutive weeks now and has a 19-6 mark over the last five following a disappointing 9-11 start.
OddsShark Computer Slips in Contest Standings
Meanwhile, the OddsShark Super Computer dropped all the way down into a tie for 12th place after going a dismal 1-4 for the first time this season. The Computer’s previous worst performance came in Week 5 at 1-3-1, but the New York Jets, New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos all turned in disappointing results as favorites in Week 9.
The underdog Oakland Raiders were the Computer’s only winner.
Rounding Again also increased the overall lead in the SuperContest to 3.5 points by going 5-0 in Week 9. The leader’s winning picks were the Minnesota Vikings, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears.
At 36-7-2, Rounding Again is ahead of the record pace set by last year’s winner CH Ballers, who had the highest winning percentage ever with 64.5 out of a possible 85 points (76 percent).
