WHAT IS GRIDIRON GAMBLE?

Gridiron Gamble is an outlet formed by four longtime friends with a dedicated passion for sports betting.

In 2015, “The Collective,” as the group is commonly referred to, launched the Gridiron Gamble podcast after recognizing a need for fun, entertaining, and high-quality sports betting content. The primary focus of Gridiron Gamble is football wagering, with specialized dedication on the world’s largest sports handicapping competition, the Las Vegas SuperContest.

In 2017, Gridiron Gamble expanded its podcast content to include a weekly SuperContest recap show and a weekly podcast dedicated to daily fantasy sports (DFS) football. Every now and then, The Collective will host a special edition podcast on a non-football topic within the sports gambling world.

You can connect with Gridiron Gamble via email, or through social media outlets Twitter and Facebook.

WHAT IS THE LAS VEGAS SUPERCONTEST?

The Las Vegas SuperContest is “the ultimate pro football handicapping contest” and it’s held by the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook in Nevada.

Each year, contestants put up the $1,500 entry fee in hopes of going down in sports betting history. Contestants put their skills to the test by picking five pro football games each week against the contest spread, and the results are ranked based on performance. A winning pick is worth one point, a tie or push is worth half a point, and a loss is worth zero points.

The Las Vegas SuperContest has witnessed incredible growth over the last several years. Since setting a new record in 2011 with 517 entries, the SuperContest has grown and set a new record each year. In 2017, the SuperContest drew a staggering field size of 2,748 contest entries and awarded a first-place prize of $1,327,284.
