Supercontest Week 3 Top Picks
Which teams are the top plays for Week 3 in the NFL Las Vegas Westgate Supercontest?
If you look at our 2016 Westgate Las Vegas Supercontest page for Week 3, you'll see five teams that are bolded in the column titled, "Week 3 Supercontest Picks by # Of Teams Selected." Those are the five teams that contestants in the Supercontest picked the most in Week 3.
The top team this week is the Pittsburgh Steelers, who were picked 663 times by the Westgate Supercontest contestants to cover the spread. The Steelers will host rookie Carson Wentz and the 2-0 Philadelphia Eagles at 1:00PM ET on Sunday and are a 3.5-point home favorite.
The second team listed is the Arizona Cardinals, who were picked 536 times by contestants. Despite what could wind up being a trap for bettors, Westgate Supercontest contestants nabbed the Cardinals as a 4-point road favorite versus the Bills in Buffalo today. The Bills are coming off an embarrassing 37-31 loss to the Jets last Thursday night but also received extra rest.
The third team chosen the most in Week 3 are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who received 502 selections by contestants. The Bucs will host the L.A. Rams at 4:05PM ET and are 5.5-point favorites in their home opener.
The Jaguars were also selected 477 times, making them among the top 5 teams for Week 3 in the Las Vegas Westgate Supercontest. Jacksonville is in search of its first win of the season after starting the year 0-2 with losses to Green Bay (at home) and San Diego (on the road). The Jaguars will host the Ravens at 1:00PM ET today in what is current a pick'em game.
The only underdog that the contestants picked for Week 3 are the Chargers, who are +3 against the Colts 4:25PM ET. Indianapolis is in search of its first win while San Diego very easily could be 2-0 had it not blown a sizable lead in Kansas City in Week 1.
