Westgate SuperContest pays 2 winners of $ 50,000 in season

The Westgate SuperContest paid off the first big winners of the competition season.

Entrants First Five and TD Tony received $ 50,000 each after finishing tied for first at 14-1 in the three-week mini-contest to open the season. Tempest got $ 5,000 for third place at 13-1-1.

The SuperContest has six three-week contests and three six-week contests this season.

The Circa Million III will crown its first quarter champion next week with a prize of $ 171,750. DeadMoneyMedia.com has the indoor track as the only undefeated entry (15-0).

In Circa Survivor, 340 entries expired when Justin Tucker rebounded from his record 66-yard field goal to give the Baltimore Ravens a 19-17 victory over the Detroit Lions.

I spent Sunday sweating the Miami Dolphins + 4½ to stay alive in Station Casinos’ Last Man Standing and as a pick in the SuperContest and Circa Million. Finally, the Raiders won 31-28 in overtime to give me a well-deserved victory.
