Welcome back to week 6 of the Circa Sports Million III Pro Football contest! The week opened up on Thursday with the Eagles hanging tough with the Buccaneers, however old man Brady continues to defy father time and remains at the top of the NFC South. We are primed for a full day of NFL action on Sunday as we get one week closer to winning the Circa Million III Pro Football contest!
As a quick refresher, 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 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 head on a swivel if you wanna pick teams that will cover.
We have three different entries in this year's Circa Million contest: Our first entry is dedicated to our Turtle Sports proprietary model plays. These picks are made strictly by the numbers without discussion. Our Kappin' with Krista plays (check out her video below) are base on group discussion and collaboration. These plays are different from our model picks as we handicap each game and try to beat our Turtle Sports model. Our last entry is for the $100,000 BOOBY PRIZE. No, this isn't about everyone's favorite ornithological variety. The way you hit this one is by having the worst record at the end of the season, so we're pickin' teams we think won't cover the spread. Okay, you got all that? Let's check out our records after week five:
Model Plays: 15-9-1
Kappin' with Krista: 11-13-1
Booby Plays: 18-7
So that brings us to week 6. There's some tough matchups this week and consensus was not easy to come by. We're lookin' for the Colts to stomp the Texans, and we're actually playin' this matchup both ways - on our Model and Booby entries. We're also lookin' for Kirk Cousins and his Vikings to edge one out over the Panthers. But best of all, Krista is BACK with her Kappin' with Krista Circa MILLION NFL Week Six plays 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!
