VegasInsider.com Pro Football Handicapping Challenge
Week 15 Leaderboard & Update

Just two weeks remain in the 2019 VegasInsider.com Pro Football Handicapping Challenge! That means there are two weeks left before we crown the winner of the $5,000 Grand Prize. Leading the way overall is ‘jacob777’ with 3,255.37 units won. In Week 15, it was ‘Gillik9486’ winning the weekly $250 prize with 1,097.50 units won on the week.

In Week 15, user ‘Gillik9486’ went 23-10 picking NFL point spreads and over/under totals in the SharpSide sports betting app. He scored nearly 1,100 units and beat out ‘papa_j333’ (1,002.69 units) and ‘Buffmuffin124’ (994.95 units) to win the week’s $250 prize.

With Week 15 behind us, there are just two weeks remaining in the 2019 VegasInsider.com Pro Football Handicapping Challenge. There are $250 weekly prizes up for grabs for the leaders of both Week 16 and Week 17, in addition to the $5,000 Grand Prize, so there is still plenty of opportunity to win and it only takes one good week to do so.

As for the overall leaderboard, for which the $5,000 Grand Prize winner will be crowned at the end of the professional football regular season, it’s still ‘jacob777’ out in front. He’s up to 3,255.37 units won, but his lead has been cut shorter. At the top, ‘jacob777’ has a record of 102-60 on the season.

In second place is ‘robster25’ with 2,935.31 units won. Entering Week 15, ‘robster25’ was 438.62 units behind ‘jacob777,’ but he narrowed that gap to 320.06 units with his Week 15 performance. The race is still very much anyone’s game, though.

With weekly swings that can be anywhere from 800-1,500 units, or maybe bigger or smaller, changes on the overall leaderboard can certainly occur in the final two weeks, so don’t rule anything out.
