Circa Million III // Week 5

Howdy football fans! Let's jump right in to NFL Week 5 and our Turtle Sports Circa Million III Pro Football Contest plays! We're sure most of you watched Thursday night's game between the Rams and the Seahawks, but if not, after hand injuries on both quarterbacks, Matt Stafford was able recover and hold off the 12'ers and their new QB1 Geno Smith. Get well soon, Mr. Wilson. Welcome back, Mr. Smith.

But that game is behind us and our sights are set to Sunday. #Alliteration. For those that are just joining us on our Circa Million III journey, each week we are picking 5 teams against the spread for a chance to win the $1 Million First Prize for best record at the end of the season. Point spreads for this contest are published Thursday mornings by Circa Sports (obviously) and remain static through the week. A lot can happen between Thursday and when our plays are due (Saturdays at Noon), so you gotta keep your ear to the turf if you wanna pick teams that will cover.

There have been a few surprises this season, and we're not quite where we want to be with four weeks under our belt, however there's still a lotta season left. Lotta szn. And we knew this was going to be a grind going in but we're up to the challenge and are marching on! We have three different entries in this year's Circa Million contest: Firstly, our Turtle Sports proprietary model plays. These picks are made strictly by the numbers without discussion. We're callin' our next entry Kappin' with Krista (video below). Plays are base on group discussion and collaboration. These plays are different from our model picks as we handicap each game and try to best our Turtle Sports model picks. Our last entry is for the $100,000 BOOBY PRIZE. No, this isn't a wet T-shirt contest... although there would be no objections from us if it was. The way you hit this one is by having the worst record at the end of the season - we're playin' teams we think won't cover the spread. Okay, you got all that? Let's check out our records after week four:

Model Plays: 12-8

Kappin' with Krista: 9-11

Booby Plays: 14-6

So that brings us to week 5. We're lookin' for a big win from Buffalo at the Chiefs this week and we're hoping the Dolphins can somewhat keep up with Brady and the Bucks. We're also thinking the Raiders will continue to struggle and won't cover the 5.5 points they are giving the Bears. Krista is BACK with all of our Circa MILLION NFL Week Five picks in the video below, so check it out! Our plays will be posted here each week, so join us on our journey to WIN the CIRCA MILLION III Pro Football Contest and get #InTheMoney!

Pickle’s picks NCAA week 5

I have been out the last few weeks so haven’t played anything. Now I am back from vacation and ready to get back on it! Just because I haven’t been playing anything doesn’t mean I haven’t been paying
