After an impressive multi-week run, Bookies Battle 2022 consensus picks hit the skids in Week 14, with just three winners on the 13-game slate.
The 3-10 record is the worst of the season for the popular selections and drops the season-long tally to 105-96. A $100 bettor following the plays would be down $60 for the year.
Craig Steppach from Gold Strike Casino in Tunica, Mississippi, rose above the fray as one of three competitors to pick nine winners last week. Craig’s consistency has him on top of the season-long Bookies Battle standings, with a 120-79 record on the year.
Kenny Martin (Caesars Sportsbook – Horseshoe Tunica) and Nick Smith (Snoqualmie Casino) also went 9-4 in Week 14.
Kyle Wainscott (Rivers Casino Des Plaines), who won the second-quarter mini-contest, is in second place for the season with 118 winners, and there’s a tie for third between first-quarter winner Casey Degnon (Westgate Las Vegas) and Robert Kowalski (Baldini’s Casino).
