  • Circa Sports Million/Survivor 2021-Week 17 (standings Tue., lines Thu., consensus/leader picks Sat.)

    Welcome to the 2012 weekly threads for the Circa contests (Circa Sports Million III and Circa Survivor).

    Circa Sports Million III made its $4 million guarantee with 4,087 entries at $1,000 apiece, breaking #vegas record for a $1,000-or-higher football contest (2019 #SuperContest had 3,328 entries at $1,500 apiece). First place is a guaranteed $1 million and pays the Top 50. There are also generous quarterly prizes.

    Circa Survivor, with a guaranteed prize pool of $6 million, drew 4,080 entries at $1,000 apiece, leaving an overlay of $1.92 million for players (thanks to owner Derek Stevens for that generous gift). The pool is $6 million to a single winner or split if multiple winners like last year. To make it tougher, Stevens added a "Christmas Week" in addition to the extra Thanksgiving Week that was used last year, in addition to the NFL expanding from a 17-week schedule to 18 weeks, so 20 total winning plays needed to run the table. (There's also a $1 million bonus to be split among those that go 20-0, with the caveat that the Buccaneers or Chiefs must be used in the final week).

    #CircaSurvivor is down to 5 live entries playing for the $6 million guaranteed prize pool as 4 were eliminated w/ the Chargers' 41-29 loss at the Texans; 3 advanced on Sunday w/ the Eagles & 2 on Falcons (who also survived a scare)

    #CircaSportsMillion leader HANNIBAL BARCA-1 went 2-3 in Week 16 but still leads at 57-23 (71.3%) w/ 2 weeks to go; HANNIBAL BARCA-2 is also in a 3-way tie for 2nd at 56-24 (70%) w/ DURBIFY-1 & MFC INC-1; DURBIFY-2 is in a 3-way tie for 5th at 55-25 (68.8%)

    #SuperContest Top 5 Most-Selected Teams went 3-2 in Week 16 (37-42-1 on season) w/ MIA +3 on #MNF joining CIN -2.5 & BUF +2.5 as winners; losers were AZ -1 & LAC -10; #SuperContestGold Top 5 went 4-3 (44-38-2) w/ MIA +3; DEN PK & WAS +11 tied as No. 5 pick

          All 5 remaining #CircaSurvivor players won on Sunday (2 on SF and 1 each on LAC, NO and SEA) & advance to the final week w/ $6 million on the line (plus $1 million bonus to be shared by any using TB or KC as final pick)

          #CircaSportsMillion Top 5 Most-Selected Teams went 4-1 in Week 17 (47-38 on season) w/ Steelers +3.5 joining Packers -7 (top pick as line went to -13 after contest line locked in), Titans -3 & Cardinals +6 as wins; loss was Rams -3.5

          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.
