Capper Cup Week 9 Recap

LAS VEGAS — “Terminator,” “The Matrix” and “Ex Machina.”

We’ve been talking about man vs machine for weeks, and it looks like the machine, specifically the Prediction Machine, is on the verge of squashing all the humans in Odds Shark’s Capper Cup contest.

After throwing a 4-1 bomb at the rest of the field this past weekend, the PM is sharing the penthouse with OverUnder985 and the Sports Gambling Podcast boys, Sean Green and Ryan Kramer, all sitting at 31.5 points.

Week 9 Recap

My boy from Samba Land and Team Odds Shark, Paulo Antunes, is still sitting in the third position with 30.5 points, while ESPN’s Joe Fortenbaugh slipped back to fourth place with 30 points.

And see what happens when Eckstein jumps on your case. Apparently my guy, [email protected], took it very personally when I busted his chops after the first couple of weeks. Foosini has been climbing the leaderboard like Alex Honnold doing a free solo climb up El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. Max the Great threw a 4-1 at the board in Week 9, and is now sitting in fifth place with 30 points, just 1.5 off the lead. Yo Max, I’ll expect a little envelope with some CHING if you pull off the win.

Also giving a shout-out to Tony Riccobono from the International Business Times, Lauren Joffe from The Spin Zone and Scott Spreitzer from Doc’s Sports, who also hit four of five this week.
