Week 2 Picks for Circa Friday Football Invitational – VSiN Exclusive News – News

For more than a decade, on Friday nights in the fall, football bettors would pack a small, smoke-filled sports book on the Strip to watch two handicappers go toe-to-toe in a $10,000 contest at the that the winner takes all. Contestants’ names were lit up on the marquee, adding an element of prestige to being a part of the Stardust Invitational.

The contest ended after the 2005 season — the Stardust closed on Nov. 1, 2006 and its two hotel towers collapsed in March 2007 — and has been lost.

So it’s time to bring back memories of an old friend. In a touch of the cover of the Stardust Invitational, Circa owner Derek Stevens is putting his money up and supporting a new event produced by VSIN, the Circa Friday Football Invitational.

The theme is the same, but the contest format is slightly different and improved. While there are still 16 handicappers in a pool, all participants participate each week in a season-long competition, unlike the Stardust format which pitted only two handicappers per week in a head-to-head elimination matchup. Stevens has increased the prize money to $25,000.

The 16 handicap course is officially set. These are the details of the contest:

CIRCA FRIDAY FOOTBALL INVITATIONAL

When: Friday, September 9 to Friday, January 6, 2023 (18 weeks)
