  • Circa Sports Million/Survivor 2022-Week 17 (lines Thursday, consensus/leader picks Saturday)

    This is the VFV Forums thread where we post the Circa Sports Million weekly lines and consensus/leader plays through the season. These threads have been very popular over the years and are what brought a lot of people to VFV for the first time (especially back when the then-Hilton was reluctant to even post the SuperContest lines and everyone's picks on their own website because they wanted everyone to come into the property). Oh, how times have changed LMEAO!

    Here is the story on Circa's record-setting entries in both Circa Sports Million and Circa Survivor: In summary, Circa Sports Million IV drew 4,691 entries at $1,000 apiece, breaking its own record for a traditional NFL ATS contest (5 games a week vs. a contest spread) that it set last year with 4,087. Circa owner Derek Stevens guaranteed a $6 million prize pool, so there's an overlay of $1.309 million with first place -- which was won by VFV Forum member Durbify -- guaranteed at $1 million. The big news was Circa Survivor drawing 6,133, a record for any Vegas football handicapping contest, exceeded its $6 million guarantee.

    Circa Survivor still has 3 live entries as THE ENEMY WITHIN-2 won with the Chargers on Monday Night Football to join BROWNA-1 and JED-4 in advancing to next week. Maddog-2 was only player eliminated (Dolphins) in NFL Week 16b/"Christmas Week" after being 46 seconds from winning it all on Saturday night. JED-4 started with the maximum 6 entries. THE ENEMY WITHIN-2 started with just 2 (and both were alive before last Thursday’s last on the Jets). BROWNA-1 is alive with their lone entry.

    Enut34-1 took the Circa Sports Million lead by going 4-1 in NFL Week 16 to improve to 55-23-2 (70.5%) and bypass KING BRUTUS-1, who went 2-3, with 2 weeks (10 picks) to go. $1 million goes to the champion and $500,000 for 2nd place while they pay the Top 100.

    Circa Sports Million Top 5 Most-Selected Teams went 2-3 in NFL Week 16, dropping to 40-36-4 (52.6%) on season. Wins were on the Bengals -3 and Steelers -2.5. Losses were on Eagles +5.5 (No. 1 picks dropped to 11-5, 68.8%), Lions -2.5 and Browns -2.5.​

        #CircaSurvivor has 3 live entries heading into NFL Week 18 w/ Giants & Lions both winning easily for BROWNA-1, JED-4 & THE ENEMY WITHIN-2; record $6.133 million pool; wonder if all will join @DerekJStevens @CircaSports to sweat out the games?​

        #CircaSportsMillion Top 5 remains at 2-2 so far in NFL Week 17 w/ postponement of pick No. 5 Bengals +1 on #MondayNightFootball (will be graded a push if not completed by 1:59 am PT Wednesday)​...follow-up: Top 5 officially 2-2-1 w/ Bills-Bengals graded a push worth 0.5 points for all players using that game.

        #CircaSportsMillion leader Enut34-1 (57-25-3, 69.5%) went 2-2-1 in Week 18 as he had Bengals +1 in the Bills-Bengals Monday Night Football game that was postponed. Per Circa Sports Million, when the game wasn't play by the 1:59 a.m. PT Wednesday deadline, it was graded a push for those taking either side of the game. Four of the Top 5 players had a play on the game.​
