SuperContest Contestants Bounce Back After Week 2 Drubbing

The post SuperContest Contestants Bounce Back After Week 2 Drubbing appeared first on SportsHandle.

In NFL Week 2, the underdogs bit hard with an 11-5 performance against the spread and seven outright victories. That outcome walloped contestants in the Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest, holding the average entry to just 1.93 correct picks out of 5. NFL Week 3 went much better for the players, who picked up an average 2.70 points (remember a push is 0.5 points), a shade behind Week 1’s 2.77-point performance (figures via FantasySuperContest).

Unlike last week where each of the top five consensus picks failed to cover (and lost outright), the top three consensus picks this week all covered the number.

There was not a single unblemished entry remaining after Week 2 among the 3,000-plus entry field. Today the overall pool co-leaders are a pack of five, each at 13-2. Here’s the weekly snapshot, then we’ll dig into the consensus picks and a bit more below:

  • Favorites vs Underdogs (ATS):  9-7
  • Home vs Away (ATS): 10-6
  • Over/Under record: 8-8
  • Straight up underdog wins: 6
