Wild Road To Victory
In the final week, ‘DSR90-1’ picked the Pittsburgh Steelers (+9), Houston Texans (+7.5), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-6.5), Baltimore Ravens (-12.5), and Miami Dolphins (+2.5). Only the Dolphins failed to cover the point spread, giving ‘DSR90-1’ a 4-1 result in Week 17. That 4-1 result was enough to push ‘DSR90-1’ into first place overall, but it was quite a sweat.
Through the early games, ‘DSR90-1’ was 3-1 and had the Texans (+7.5) pending in the afternoon. ‘ODBMG-2’ had the Ravens (-12.5) from the early slate, which was a winner, and then the Green Bay Packers (-5), Carolina Panthers (+7), and Seattle Seahawks (-6) in the afternoon. ‘ODBMG-2’ also had the Washington Football Team (-2) on Sunday night. With the way things had set up, ‘ODBMG-2’ needed the Panthers or Seahawks to cover in order to have a shot at the $1,000,000 top prize. It didn’t look good, though.
The Panthers were getting blown out by the New Orleans Saints. Even though Carolina was getting 7 points, a Saints cover was never really in jeopardy. A Seahawks cover didn’t look good, either. The game was a slugfest for the majority and the San Francisco 49ers were up 16-12 in the fourth quarter. Seattle drove down the field and scored a go-ahead touchdown with 2:26 left thanks to Russell Wilson finding Tyler Lockett in the end zone. With the extra point, the Seahawks went up 19-16, but they still weren’t covering the 6-point spread and the 49ers were going to get the ball back.
After the kickoff, C.J. Beathard fumbled on the second play of the drive and Seattle recovered on San Francisco’s 17-yard line. Still, ‘ODBMG-2’ needed the Seahawks to punch in a touchdown. Because the 49ers had three timeouts left and there was still the two-minute warning to stop the clock, the Seahawks couldn’t just burn out the time. Instead, they ran a few plays and Alex Collins found the end zone. The extra point made it a 10-point game, 26-16, with ‘ODBMG-2’ back in the mix.
Beathard quickly got the 49ers back into the red zone on the subsequent drive and he eventually found Jeff Wilson in the end zone for a touchdown. Although the score didn’t give the 49ers the lead, it took the cover away from the Seahawks and allowed ‘DSR90-1’ to breathe a little easier. ‘DSR90-1’ could then sit back and relax after the Texans covered against the Tennessee Titans as 7.5-point underdogs.
It was a wild finish to a wild Circa Sports Million II season, and ‘DSR90-1’ walks away with a wild $1,000,000 first-place prize.
