SuperContest: Two Sports Action teams making runs
Las Vegas – We might be the new kids on the sports gambling block, but that isn’t going to stop me from bragging about how well two of the Action Sports Network’s teams in the SuperContest are doing after six weeks of the competition.
Let’s start with Team Bet The Process, who is now 19-10-1 and showing off a 65.5 winning percentage. You want to talk about hot? How about Bet The Process currently being on a 13-2 run over the last three weeks. After going 5-0 in Week 4, this team has put together back-to-back 4-1 weeks to raise their stock all the way into 91st place.
The only pick that Bet The Process missed this week was taking the Redskins to cover that double-digit line, but Sunday was crazy in the NFL. Numerous teams failed to have good weeks, including mine, and Bet jumped up into the top 100 overall.
Not to be outdone, Team Beatrix Kiddo just ripped off their first 5-0 week, becoming our third different team to put up a perfect card. After stumbling a bit a week ago, Beatrix stormed back by taking four underdogs and one home favorite. The Saints chucked up a 50-burger on the Lions to cover at home, and trend of underdogs hitting continued that elevated Beatrix into the top 250.
Scoring an unblemished week has raised Beatrix’s win percentage back over 60 percent for the season. At 17-11-2, Kiddo has a legit shot at getting into the top 50 if they continue to put up big scores.
On the other end of the excitement train is where we find Team Gamenight and Team Sports Action. After avoiding a losing mark in back-to-back weeks, I threw up a 2-3 record in Week 6. I’m back to .500 now with my perfectly even 14-14-2 mark on the season. However, I’m still close to accomplishing my goals of hitting over 50 percentage for the year and finishing in the top half of the contest.
I was proud of my pick of the Texans to blow out the Browns. It was another impressive game by the rookie QB Deshaun Watson and that Houston offense. The Browns turned the ball over multiple times, and the Texans made them pay for it.
Unfortunately, the only other game I hit on was the Cardinals winning outright at home over Tampa at +2.5. The Bucs lost starting QB Jameis Winston, but it didn’t matter as their defense got blasted all game. My other three picks did not go well, as the SuperContest No. 1 picked Steelers won outright over the Chiefs, the Lions lost big at New Orleans, and the Jags couldn’t protect their home field against the Rams.
After a 5-0 mark last week, Sports Action came back to earth a little bit this week with a 1-4 record (13-16-1 overall).
