Happy Sunday y'all! You gotta love a nice comeback and that is exactly what we did last week!!! With a 4-1 record last week, it would have been 5-0 if we trusted in the model and our rule of no Thursday games when it's a stand alone game, we move to 60% on the year which is the base of our calculations when it comes to what it will take to cash. We hope to avoid any more of those pesky poor weeks. If we want to achieve our goal of cashing we have to buckle down now! Pickles and Finky did their homework and even swapped out one play so we are hoping they made the right call.
In the Millions contest, 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. We dialed back a bit this year on our entries in the Circa Million IV contest, we only have one, but added some more fun in the Circa Survivor:
Model Plays: This entry's picks are made using our Turtle Sports proprietary model.
Survivor: Pick one team each win to win outright (spread doesn't matter) and you move one; the catch is once you use a team you can't use them again
Model Plays: 9-6-0 for 9 Points
Survivor: 0-1-0 Eliminated
So that brings us to week 4. There are lots of short lines this week so the model will be put to the test as it produced 7 possible plays. You can find all of our plays below and check out Finky's video for even more insight. As always, we thank you very much for joining us on our CIRCA MILLION IV Pro Football Contest journey. We are overly excited to have the NFL back!!! With 16 weeks of Millions left, we are looking to get #InTheMoney this year!
