The NFL Super Contest sponsored by the Las Vegas Hilton is coming down to the last week of the regular season in the NFL. In the NFL Week 17 several teams are playing for the playoffs, but in the Super Contest, several players are playing for all the marbles and a shot at winning the championship.
A quick look at the overall leaderboard shows that just four points separate the top 19 spots on the big board. That means that anything can happen today as the title and a whole lot of cash is on the line in the NFL Super contest.
After a 4-1 week 16 record the new overall leader is TOOFDOC as they have 53 overall points in the contest and are tied with JAY STONES for the top spot. However neither one of them can afford to have a bad week as there are several other top expert pickers ready to claim the top spot. AL SR. is in third place with 52.5 points tied with both HEISENBERG and WISKY. Right behind them in the standings is GFY and CARDIFF GIANT with 52 points just a half point outside of the top five, so as you can see anything goes in Week 17.
