Westgate SuperContest Final Recap
ProMathletics is now offering our famous playoff package. Join us as we recapture the magic that was our 2018 playoff run. Last year, we racked up a 10-1 record ATS and topped it off with an 8-1 record on Super Bowl props, which included a 12/1 1st TD from Alshon Jeffery.
You will receive picks for every game and Super Bowl props. With our 16th place finish in this year's SuperContest, we have now finished in the top 100 three years in a row, which also happens to be the only three years we have entered. CLICK HERE TO JOIN IN THE WINNING.
Just as we predicted over the last few weeks, the winning number ended up at 59.5. PERSONAL GOURMET pulls off a miraculous week 17 perfect 5-0 to slip past @PIGSKIN_JUNKIES and win the whole shebang by just 1/2 a point. Blaine Gabbert's horrific INT sealed it for GOURMET as the JUNKIES had the Titans for the win. 59.5 points represents a 70.2% win rate, which is very impressive. 53 points was the threshold to get paid, as the payout field was expanded to the top 100 entries plus ties this season.
With an extremely strong (2.9 average points) week 17, the field is averaged 2.57 points per week (51.3%) which is the strongest we can remember the contest ever performing. It is crazy to think that would be the case with the largest field we've ever seen. The top 5 consensus (Ind, Cle, Buf, Phi, Min) went 4-1 this week. The top 5 picks finished the season 46-39 (54%).
The ProMathletics team continued our hedging strategy this week. We submitted 10 entries with our "real" picks and 8 with a straight hedge. Our picks for the week were NO, Atl, Cin, Chi, and Ten. We went 3-2. We finished the season at 54-29-2 (65%) and finished the season tied for 16th place out of 3,123 entries. We have now finished in the top 100 in all three years we have entered the SuperContest. Look for the ProMathletics team to win it next season.
You can see the final dispersion of all the entries below. 45.5 points was the most common entry score. The average contest entry finished with 2.57 points per week.
