What is Circa Sports Million?
Circa Sports Million is a simple NFL picks contest. Each week participants will choose a side in five pro football games against the point spread. The Circa Sports Million doesn’t offer totals or moneylines for weekly selections.
Football betting lines are created by individual sportsbooks. A betting line will move based on how much money is wagered on the side. For the Circa Sports Million, though, point spreads are different. The contest spreads are “static lines” and won’t change once posted.
Every week of the NFL season Circa Sports will post the static lines at 10:00 am on Thursday. Contestants must submit weekly picks to Circa Sports by 3:00 pm each Saturday during the season. If picks aren’t submitted by the weekly deadline, zero points will be awarded for that week.
Circa Sports Million contestants can place picks in person at the Golden Gate or D Las Vegas casinos or by using a kiosk in either casino. The weekly picks can also be placed anywhere inside of Nevada using the Circa Sports mobile app.
The contest is won by accruing as many points as possible each quarter and for the full season. Contestants will earn one (1) point for each correct selection, one half (.5) point for each push, and zero (0) points for each incorrect selection.
