After three straight losing weeks to start the season – including back-to-back weeks of just five winners – consensus plays have tallied four straight weeks hitting at least 50%. The run includes two standouts – a 13-2-1 performance in Week 4 and another in double-digit win territory this past week.
Kalen Carlisle (Wynn) – one of six contestants who picked 11 Week 7 winners – has put a head in front in the season-long Bookies Battle standings.
At 64-41 for the year, Kalen is a game ahead of industry stalwarts Jason Scott (BetMGM) and Jay Rood (Bally Bet).
Our second-quarter mini-contest leaderboard shows Eric Lepard (Wynn) in first place with 21 winners between Weeks 6 and 7, with Rood trailing by just a game.
Two weeks remain in the second-quarter contest, the winner of which gets $500 plus a spot in the playoff portion of the contest, where there’s another $2,000 at stake.
