Spooky Express 2023 Circa Contest - Week 1 Plays

September 9, 2023

This year, Spooky Express is once again throwing our hat into the ring for the Million Dollar Circa Sports Million Pro Football Contest.  Each week, we will share our top 5 plays that we are entering into this weekly contest, and the reason for each, with the hopes of bringing home the $1 million dollar top prize!


Week 1 - September 7-11, 2023 

  • Baltimore Ravens -10

  • Jacksonville Jaguars -4.5

  • Pittsburgh Steelers +2.5

  • Washington Commanders -7

  • Chicago Bears -1 

Baltimore Ravens -10 | The Baltimore Ravens have built one of the top offenses in the league and we expect they will pretty much dominate this game on every facet. Houston still is not at the level of winning and expecting them to come into Baltimore, and compete, is just far-fetched.  Our analysis has Baltimore winning by nearly 3 touchdowns. 

Jacksonville Jaguars -4.5 | I'm not normally a fan of playing road favorites in week 1 but this is the exception to the rule. We think the Colts are going to struggle this year and go through some growing pains. On the other side, Jacksonville is a well-established unit that is going to compete all year long. We feel this line holds a lot of value, as it should be much higher.  We have Jacksonville winning by 8 points. 

Pittsburgh Steelers +2.5 | Our third pick is the Steelers.  San Fran is going west coast to east coast, playing at 1:00 PM, and let's face it, this offense is very suspect. Over history, we know that when SF comes to Pittsburgh, they don't play well, losing 43-18 in 2015 and 37-16 in 2007. I know - I know - I know.... can't put too much into that, but it still can't be ignored. We have the Steelers winning this game outright, so giving us 2.5 points is a no-brainer.

Washington Commanders -7 | This is going to be a very popular play but this is about getting wins and we certainly like our chances of a win here. Arizona is going to have some issues this year, especially now that their start QB is out. Joshua Dobbs is now the starter and that can't make Cardinals fans happy. We have the Commanders winning this one by double digits. 

Chicago Bears -1 | If you read any of the material online, you will hear about the Green Bay Packers dominating the Chicago Bears over history but was it the Green Bay Packers or was it Aaron Rogers? Check those stats. The Packers are going to have to score points in this game, and we just don't forecast that happening! Bears win this one by at least a TD.
