Overall the experts seemed to have a down week compared to the excellent scores they had the previous week.  However, the Industry Consensus picks had their best week so far this NBA season finishing in the top 3 on both Tuesday and Wednesday night. We also have a new leader in the overall standings this week. Find out who in the Overall Leaderboard section below.

In this article, I will give a brief recap of each day we gathered and graded the experts, including how the Industry Consensus picks did, highlighting which experts were at the top for the day and which players were only called out by one or two experts, but produced an “A+” grade. I will also review the overall standings, highlighting the top experts so far this season. You can view the full NBA Overall Standings here.
