The Super Contest from the Las Vegas Hilton is the biggest NFL handicapping contest in the world. NFL handicappers both professional and recreational come from all corners of the world to try their luck at being named the best NFL game picker in the world.
The rules are simple. Contestants pick 5 pro games against the spread each week and the few that are lucky enough to pick over 67% qualify for a $10,000 aggregate bonus. Past winners have collected $207K, $220K, $303K, $259K, and last year’s record of $310K and it is growing every year with the contests popularity.
Every week here at Bang the Book we will cover the contest, take a quick look at the leaderboard and the consensus and reveal our picks for the week.
Currently through five weeks of NFL action there is a tie atop the leaderboard at 18-7 with an OPERTAION HIGH STAK and ETOWN. In third place is THE NUTS with a 17-6-2 record and rounding out the top five is FRANCOSPORTS.COM (18-7) at fourth and ANCRCHIOTSUNITED (17-7-1).
