LAS VEGAS – Grannys Boy went 4-1 for the second straight week and has opened up a two-point lead in the SuperContest with three weeks to go.

Grannys Boy is 48-19-3 (71.6%) overall and the only SuperContest player hitting better than 70% (note: SC players earn 1 point per win and half a point per push).

So, Grannys Boy has 49.5 points while Schematic Advantage is sitting in second place at 47-22-1 (68.1%), two points back. It should be noted that The Ville and former leader BioSoft Global are tied for third place at 47 points and could have moved within 1.5 point of the leader if the Patriots had covered as 11-point favorites on the SC line on Monday night, but the Patriots lost 27-20 to the Dolphins. 

For the uninitiated, the famed SuperContest (commonly getting to be known as SuperContest Classic with the introduction this year of SuperContest Gold) costs $1,500 to enter and drew a record field of 2,748 this year with each entrant making five NFL plays a week against the spread. The season-long champion will win $1,327,284 and the SuperContest pays the top 50.

The Top 5 Consensus went 3-2 in Week 14 with the Eagles winning as the No. 1 choice (they were also the top pick in the Gold) and also getting wins from the Packers and Ravens while losing with the Vikings and Seahawks. The Top 5 plays are 15-5 (75%) over the last four weeks and are up to 33-37 (47.1%) after a brutal start.

In the $5,000 buy-in SuperContest Gold (which has a winner-take-all prize of $470,000), Stag Capital is the new leader at 42-27-1 (60.9%) for 42.5 points. Midwest Square is second at 41-27-2 (60.3%) for 42 points and was actually in the lead after the Sunday afternoon games but Stag Capital had the Ravens plus-5 in the Sunday night game while former leader BrettFavre444 had the Steelers -5. BrettFavre444 is now in third place at 41-28-1 (59.4%).

Longtime leader BKSF is another half-point back with 41 points, followed by Benson at 40.5 and Michael Peffercorn at 40. Michael Peffercorn also missed a chance to move up with the Patriots' failure as 11-point favorites on Monday Night Football.
