First-Quarter Contest Ends in Week 5

With $500 and an automatic berth into the playoff portion of the contest at stake, Casey Lewless from Margaritaville Bossier City takes a one-game lead into Week 5, the final week of the first-quarter mini-contest. After three-straight weeks with double-digit wins, including an 11-4 mark in Week 4, Casey is 39-23 on the season.

Three contestants are a game behind the leader — BetMGM’s Scott, Casey Degnon (Westgate Las Vegas), and Kalen Carlisle (Wynn).

Defending Bookies Battle champ, Max Schmerin from Rivers Casino Pittsburgh, is three games back of the lead at 36-25.

A first-place tie will be broken with total points scored predictions for the Raiders vs. Chiefs Monday night game. Should two or more contestants be tied for the lead, the one among them with the closest predicted score is the first-quarter contest winner.
