Storming to an 11-3 record in Week 10, Bookies Battle 2022 consensus picks are 76-69-5 on the season heading into NFL Week 11. A $100 bettor following the selections blindly would be up $10 through 10 weeks against standard -110 juice.

Okay, so we’re not exactly printing money around here, but at least we’re on the right side of the ledger.

The 11-win week breaks a string of two-straight losing weeks for the consensus plays, as underdog-leaning contestants benefitted from the season-long trend that has seen dogs hit at a nearly 58% clip. Dogs covered the contest point spread in nine of the 14 games this past week.

Max, Back in our Headlines

We’ve written the name “Max Schmerin” a lot over these past few years. The sportsbook manager at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh did win this contest last year, after all. Well, Max is making noise again, mirroring the consensus pick’s 11-3 tally in Week 10, good for a one-game early lead in the third-quarter mini-contest.

Five contestants picked 10 winners last week.

Kyle Wainscott (Rivers Casino Des Plaines), who is coming off his win in the second-quarter contest, remains on top of the season-long standings but has company, with Craig Steppach (Gold Strike) tied for first with 85 winners.

Industry veterans Robert Kowalski (Baldini’s Casino) and Jason Scott (BetMGM) are in second and third place, respectively, with 84 and 83 winners so far this season.

NFL Week 10 Contest Lines

We have three games sitting on the key number ‘3’ for our Bookies Battle contestants in Week 10, while the underdog is spotted a field goal plus the hook in two. Three games are priced inside of a field goal, and only one game – Panthers at Ravens – features a point spread in the double digits.

Bookies Battle is an NFL picks contest among more than 50 bookmakers throughout the legal US sports betting business. Follow the competition and see who the contestants are picking right here.
