BioSoft Sports takes lead in Classic; contestants struggle overall

LAS VEGAS – We again have a new leader in the Westgate SuperContest – but not really.

Last week, a contestant using the alias BioSoft Global took over sole possession of first place with BioSoft Sports (presumably the same person/team) just a half-point back in second. This weekend, BioSoft Global dropped its first three games with the Jets, Titans and Giants, but the BioSoft Sports entry (which had duplicate plays of the Titans and Patriots) went 3-2 after the Patriots’ cover in the Sunday Night Game to improve to 34-15-1 (69.4%) and move a half-point ahead of Grannys Boy at 33-15-2. With the Panthers' cover on Monday Night Football, BioSoft Global finished 2-3 on the week to tie Grannys Boy in a tie for second place.

The consensus plays derived from the picks of all SuperContest entrants continued to struggle. In fact, it looked like Week 10 was going to challenge the all-time worst week ever (Week 8 when the Top 5 went 0-5 and the overall consensus of all games went 1-13-1 against the SuperContest spread) when the most picked teams failed to cover all eight of the 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT kickoffs on Sunday. The Top 5 also got off to an 0-4 start with the Bills (also the No. 1 choice of the Gold contestants), Jaguars, Redskins and Jets all coming up short.

However, the Rams, the No. 4 choice of SuperContestants, covered as 12-point faves in their 33-7 rout of the Texans to get the Top 5 off the schneid and the Falcons also covered in their 27-7 win over the Cowboys as 3-point SC faves to get the overall consensus to a (barely) more respectable 2-9-1 with the push being the Seahawks’ 22-16 win over the Cardinals back on Thursday night as 6-point faves. The Patriots’ cover on Sunday night improved the overall consensus further to 3-9-1, but then the Dolphins let down their backers on Monday night as the overall consensus closed the week at 3-10-1.

In the $5,000 winner-take-all Gold contest, BKSF went 3-2 in Week 10 to hold onto the lead at 33-17 (66%), though Michael Peffercorn did pull within 2.5 points at 30-19-1 after the Patriots’ cover on Sunday night as BKSF had the Broncos. The Gold’s Top 5 Consensus also went 1-4 with only the Falcons covering as the losing Top 5 plays were the Bills, Browns, Broncos and Jaguars.
