NFL Week 8 SuperContest Picks

Patriots top pick in Week 8 NFL Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest 10/30/16

Which teams made the top 5 for Week 8 in the NFL Westgate Las Vegas Supercontest?

Our Westgate Las Vegas NFL SuperContest page shows that the top five player picks this week are the Patriots (742 selections), Chargers (631), Raiders (627), Falcons (463) and Saints (460). It's not surprising to see that New England was a top selection considering the Patriots are taking on the Bills, who will be without LeSean McCoy for Sunday's game in Buffalo. But two of those five teams (Chargers and Saints) are underdogs, which are usually avoided by public bettors.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Patriots are a 5-point favorite versus the Bills while the Chargers are 4.5-point road underdogs at the Broncos. The Raiders are slight favorites at -2 against the Bucs in Tampa Bay, while the Falcons are a 3-point home favorite versus the Packers. The Saints, meanwhile, are a 2-point home dog versus the Seahawks at 1:00PM ET.

That said, the top 5 was 3-2 against the spread last week, with the Chargers, Patriots and Dolphins all covering and the Vikings and Titans falling short at the betting window.
