The World Series of Handicapping is one of the biggest and best football handicapping contests that are out there today. It is filled with talented individuals looking to claim the top spot. This contest attracts all types of football fans that like to predict the outcome of the games in an attempt to pick the winners of each contest.

The World Series of Handicapping also known as (WSOH) asks the player to pick seven games per week and list them in order of importance by assigning 1-7 units for each game. All season long the field has fought to be among the best. This is more difficult than it looks as there have been several changes at the top spot. From newbies to veterans of this contest, everyone is lurking on the leaderboard ready to make a move late in the season and claim the first place trophy which is an enormous ring. The race for the bling is winding down and only one handicapper can claim the top spot.

Currently in first place is Enigma who has a 61-36-1 record and has collected 118.10 units on the season. He is fresh off an impressive 6-1 week where he dominated the field and he becomes the second entrant to eclipse 100 units on the season. The last player to do this had a 0-7 week the following week. While Enigma will try to avoid the letdown he will have to hold off the rest of the field led by defending champion Petro who is currently in second place with a 60-36-2 record with 91.20 units amassed on the season.

Richs Picks who jumped up the leaderboard a week ago, proved he was no fluke as he now has a 58-33 record with 91.00 units gained on the season, just .20 units behind second place.

Richs Picks is ready to make a run for the title and although he is just in third place a good week could change everything. Here are his picks for week 15 which already includes two huge winners on Thursday night that will gain him 12 units!

  • 7 Units: Arizona Cardinals (W)
  • 6 Units: Seattle Seahawks
  • 5 Units: Under Cardinals/ Rams (W)
  • 4 Units: New England Patriots
  • 3 Units: Philadelphia Eagles
  • 2 Units: Baltimore Ravens
  • 1 Unit: Indianapolis Colts

The WSOH consensus reveals the most popular picks of the week in the contest. This week the Thursday night game attracted plenty of action, but the Sunday showdown that is getting the most selections is the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Buffalo Bills. The Packers have four contestants that made this road team their highest rated selection.

This could be the week that someone surprises and goes from being a lurker on the leader board to a front runner in this prestigious contest.
