$9.26 Million at Stake for Final Four Contestants in Circa Sports’ Circa Survivor Professional Football Contest


Each Remaining Entry in Record-Breaking Betting Contest Worth an Implied $2.3 Million

Four entrants remain in sports betting venture Circa Sports’ record-breaking professional football contest, Circa Survivor, with a historic $$9,267,000 on the table. Going into week 17, each remaining entry is currently worth an implied $2,316,750.

After a wild split week for the holiday season that knocked out six other contestants, the high-stakes contest is down to its final four. Circa Survivor split the holiday week’s game schedule into weeks 16A and 16B. Contestants had to pick one game on either Thursday, Saturday or Sunday, and then those who advanced had to pick one more on Monday, Christmas Day. One entrant, Circus Master, picked Los Angeles on Thursday night, advancing before anyone else. Indiana Jet and LAJoneser both picked Chicago on Sunday. Contestant Jax Jags chose Green Bay, who advanced after a significant sweat against Carolina.

The six eliminated contestants picked Denver to beat New England during the Sunday Christmas Eve game. New England scored big early and led 23-7 after three quarters. Denver returned with a significant rally, scoring two touchdowns and two two-point conversions in the fourth quarter, tying the score. However, New England made its way downfield, securing the win with a field goal kicked by Chad Ryland with 2 seconds remaining. That field goal ended the Circa Survivor journey for those six contestants.

For Monday’s selections, all four of the remaining entrants picked Philadelphia against New York. Philadelphia led the entire game, but it wouldn’t be without a sweat. New York had a chance to tie the game on the final play; however, an interception secured Philadelphia’s win. All four contestants advanced.

Last year, 11 of the remaining 14 entrants were eliminated during the holiday week. 10 lost in week 16A, while one fell in week 16B. Two contestants split the $6.1 million prize at the end.

As week 17 approaches, favorites include Cleveland, Denver, Indianapolis, Chicago, and Minnesota.
