In Week 5, ‘SunnySanDiego-1’ picked the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3.5), Houston Texans (-6), Pittsburgh Steelers (-7), Miami Dolphins (+8.5), and Dallas Cowboys (-9.5). The Buccaneers played on Thursday Night Football to kick off Week 5, and they lost to the Chicago Bears by one point. Tom Brady looked good in the first half for the Buccaneers, but the game got away from Tampa Bay later on and the Bears were able to squeak out the victory even though Nick Foles and company didn’t look the best.
The other loss for ‘SunnySanDiego-1’ was the Cowboys. Dallas won the game but didn’t cover the 9.5-point spread. To make matters worse, starting QB and NFL passing leader Dak Prescott suffered a season-ending broken leg. Going forward, it will be Andy Dalton under center for the Cowboys.
With a three-entry max in the Circa Sports Million, it looks like one contestant is having quite the start to the season, despite not being in first place. ‘Presence-1’ is tied for second place, ‘Presence-2’ is tied for fourth place, and ‘Presence-3’ is tied for 10th place after Week 5.
