Contest tracker: Last 5 entries sweating in $6M Circa Survivor by Jim Barnes of Las Vegas Review-Journal

“Five people have entries in the Circa Survivor contest that are theoretically worth more than $1 million but could still end up being worth zero. The five are vying for the $6 million winner-take-all prize in the contest, in which entries pick one straight-up NFL winner each week but can use each team only once. If the contestants split the top prize, they would each receive $1.2 million, but Circa does not facilitate so-called “chops.” The prize pool will be split only if multiple people survive through Week 18, or if everyone is eliminated in the same week.

All 3 that have the Buccaneers or Chiefs available for the $1 million bonus if used in Week 18 have chosen to save them in case they want to use them and go for the added bonus.

And then we’ll offer our best bet for Monday.”


Tuley’s Takes Today: Monday recap, Contest Corner, Tuesday NHL best bet (1/4) by Dave Tuley of

“HANNIBAL BARCA-1 still leads Circa Sports Million at 60-24-1 (71.4 percent), but DURBIFY-1 won with the Steelers + 3.5 on Monday Night Football to improve to 60-25 (70.6 percent) and half a point behind with 1 week to go. Amazingly, HANNIBAL BARCA-2 (who was in 2nd place after Sunday’s action) is in 3rd place with 59.5 points and DURBIFY-2 is in 4th with 59 points as the two contestants are in sole possession of the Top 4 spots in the standings.

Circa Sports Million Top 5 Most-Selected Teams went 4-1 in Week 17 (47-38 on season) with Steelers + 3.5 joining Packers -7 (top pick as the line out in the “real world” went to -13 after the contest line was locked in on Thursday morning), Titans -3 and Cardinals + 6 as wins. The lone loss was the Rams -3.5.”
