At this juncture, each remaining entry holds an implied value of $2,316,750.

Circa Sports' professional football betting contest, Circa Survivor, is poised for a decisive conclusion as the final four contestants compete for $9.3m in prize money. 

The recent holiday split week, comprising weeks 16A and 16B, added a new layer of complexity to the contest. Contestants were required to make strategic picks on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, plus an additional selection on Christmas Day. Circus Master secured an early lead with a judicious Thursday night pick, while Indiana Jet, LAJoneser and Jax Jags also advanced during the holiday week.

The Sunday Christmas Eve game, however, witnessed a dramatic turn of events when six contestants (all of whom selected Denver to beat New England) faced elimination. Despite a compelling fourth-quarter rally by Denver, New England ultimately secured the win, marking the exit of those six participants from the competition.

Monday's selections became pivotal for the remaining four contestants, all of whom chose Philadelphia against New York. The game, though closely contested, concluded with an interception that secured Philadelphia's victory and allowed all four contestants to advance to the final stage.

These remaining four contenders are now in a position to compete for a share of the historic $9.3m prize pool in what has been a competitive and hard-fought sports betting showdown.

As week 17 approaches, favorites for game picks include Cleveland, Denver, Indianapolis, Chicago and Minnesota.
