Let’s take a look at the updated 2019 Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest standings after Week 9.

With its completion comes another week of SuperContest action, and we’ve also got a new leader atop the SuperContest standings. After Week 9, ‘BUD FOX’ has taken the lead.

The Cowboys covered, winning 37-18 over the New York Giants, and BUD FOX got the cover he needed. With the cover, BUD FOX improved to 33-11-1 overall, good for 33.5 points and a 1-point lead.

Elsewhere On the Leaderboard
A few members of the SharpSide family and friends variety are competing in the 2019 SuperContest, including ‘ROTOGRINDERS,’ which is the team name of RotoGrinders.com Co-Founder and CEO Cal Spears and SharpSide Product Manager Erik Beimfohr, ‘GRIDIRON GAMBLE,’ the leading sports betting podcast that focuses on the SuperContest and is part of the SharpSide network, ‘BACK AND BEER,’ which is the team of Dan Back and Chris Prince, and ‘PRINT FACTORY POD,’ which is the entry name for Print Factory Podcast host Tony ‘BigT’ Niehaus.
ROTOGRINDERS didn’t do so hot in Week 9. After going 2-3 in Week 8, ROTOGRINDERS went 1-4 in Week 9. The only winning pick made by ROTOGRINDERS in Week 9 was the Buffalo Bills (-9.5). The four losing picks were the Minnesota Vikings (+2.5), New York Jets (-3), Detroit Lions (+2.5), and Cleveland Browns (-3). Overall, the team is now 26-19. It’s not horrible, but the team has been sliding in the wrong direction as of late and will look to right the ship in Week 10.
GRIDIRON GAMBLE maneuvered its way back above the .500 mark with a 3-1-1 performance in Week 9. The Carolina Panthers (-3.5), Oakland Raiders (-2.5), and Denver Broncos (+3) were the three winning sides.

BACK AND BEER moved to 21-24 overall.
PRINT FACTORY POD continued its dive with a 1-3-1 result in Week 9. That’s not four straight losing weeks and a four-week record of 5-14-1 recently. PRINT FACTORY POD had the New York Jets (-3), Detroit Lions (+2.5), and Cleveland Browns (-3) as losing picks. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+6) scored a push, just as it did for GRIDIRON GAMBLE, and then the Baltimore Ravens (+3) was a winner, just as it was for BACK AND BEER.
