Westgate SuperContest Picks: Week 1 Results
Howard Bender and Craig Mish share the results for their Week 1 NFL picks for the Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest.
The Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest is considered the premier NFL football handicapping challenge. Each week contestants select five NFL games and pick their winners using the spreads provided by Westgate Resorts. The lines are set every Wednesday and remain as such for the week for this particular contest. The contestant who correctly earns the most points for the entire NFL season is decalred the champion and will collect at least one million dollars with additional payouts to the Top 100 overall.
Craig Mish and Howard Bender of Wager Alarm have entered the contest and are sharing their picks during the Wager Alarm Livestream every Friday night at 9pm ET.
Here's a look at the Wager Alarm ticket from Week 1 where Craig and Howard went 3-1-1.
**Incidentally, we had a push on the Denver/Seattle game which had a spread of Broncos -3. When we first discussed this on the Tuesday Livestream, the line was Broncos -2.5 and we made the recommendation to, if you were wagering on this particular game, to bet it now before it went up.
Here is a snapshot of our current place in the overall standings -- tied at 602.
You can catch Craig & Howard on the Wager Alarm Livestream every Tuesday night at 7pm ET and every Friday night at 9pm ET
