    No, and dont plan it either lol. Its only my second year in the contest. Very tough. But it does help me as a capping tool towards being selective in my other plays.

    But hey, someone has to win right?

    Good luck, this thing is awesome. If I wasn't so cheap or bad at picking NFL games I'd do this.

    You should listen to the Chad Millman behind the bets podcast on the Super Contest, it's him and Westgate book manager. Also they have good betting info on this podcast.

    Link for podcasts: http://espn.go.com/espnradio/podcast/archive?id=5395837

    If it makes you feel any better I've got money on Texans as a pick em and got the Titans +3, so you being opposite on those should make you a winner.

    Also I agree with you on Ravens pick, sorry. I don't have money on Ravens but thinking about under, I have no faith in Manning anymore.

    I will explain this in the morning but it will be for next year. It's basically too late to sign up for the contest. I will answer any questions you have.

    Yes he seems pretty cool in the podcast they did on the Super Contest. They also have Bob Succi as a regular on there. He's the Sportsbook manager for the Orleans and basically in charge of all the Coast/Boyd books. He started at the Stardust, been around forever and was heavily featured in an awesome book about vegas sports gambling The Odds by Millman who does the podcast.

    From some of my proxys email:

    http://www.westgatedestinations.com/.../supercontest/

    Here is the link to the Contest lines for week # 1

    http://www.westgatedestinations.com/...t-weekly-card/

    In addition, the SuperContest will be posting the selections of all contestants and the consensus (# of times each team is selected) on Saturday a few hours after the submission deadline has passed. They should be available in the vicinity of 3 to 4 PM Pacific time on Saturdays.

    The direct link to the selections to be posted each week is --

    http://www.westgatedestinations.com/...st-selections/

    The Westgaate/LVH will also post the weekly standings, perhaps as early as mid afternoons on Tuesdays.

    Here is the link for the results and standings --

    Good luck this season!!!!

    A buddy of mine joined up last week. He's using a proxy. Too rich for my blood. Last year 60-24-1 won. That's damn good. :)

    Trust me, that is a hell of a record. CH ballers (last years winners) actually also went tout.

    I just found their site. $800 for a season worth of picks, or a week's worth for the low low price of $40. More power to them, I guess.
