The End of the Future: Our Best and Worst Future Bets That Are Now in Jeopardy by Action Network

Victor Hovland 135-1 to win Masters: The Masters has not been cancelled, so this ticket may live. A refund of the Hovland money, however, would be considered a win. This number was purchased at Circa Sports last summer with hopes Hovland would earn his tour card and finish top 50 in the World Golf Ranking.


Colorado Casinos Enthusiastic About Launching Mobile and Retail Sports Betting by Vedran Ostojic of GamblersNews

“In the state of Colorado, seven casinos active here have already applied for necessary master licenses which once obtained would give these facilities the ability to operate mobile, online and land-based sportsbooks and sports betting operations… Century Casinos Incorporated inked a business deal with Circa Sports Colorado just last month.


Nevada sportsbooks brace for an indefinite time without sports by Benjamin Brown of Fox News

“Gamblers who already placed bets on the NCAA conference tournaments games will get refunded, at least at the Westgate Superbook, Circa sportsbook, Wynn and Caesars… For bets placed at the Circa Sportsbook, ‘we will be refunding any 2020 NCAA basketball, baseball and hockey championship futures. If any were included in a parlay, the parlay will be reduced to its remaining legs,’ the Circa sports team told Fox News in a statement.


Desperate for sports? Kevin Lee wants to entertain on tonight’s UFC card by Case Keefer of Las Vegas Sun

“Although Lee is a slight favorite this time around — he’s offered at a minus-145 (risking $1.45 to win $1) at Circa sports books — Oliveira is no easy task. The 30-year-old is a 10-year UFC veteran who’s won his last six fights and holds the promotional record with 13 lifetime submissions.


New Masters odds out as casinos prep for refunds by Will Gray of Gold Channel

“Westgate’s house rules require that a golf tournament take place within eight days of its scheduled date for wagers to be considered “action.” That means that in the very likely scenario that the event is postponed more than one week from its original April 9-12 dates, all bets taken to date will be voided and subject to refund. The same house rules apply at Circa Sports, another Las Vegas sports book… The biggest house liabilities at Circa Sports were Bubba Watson (30/1), Simpson (41/1) and McIlroy (+925).


Books fill March Madness sports betting void with odds on rugby league, KHL and more soccer by Patrick Everson of Covers

Soccer is a little more traditional, but even within that market, bookmakers are putting up more options. While Circa Sports in downtown Las Vegas always has Liga MX – the Mexican Premier League – on the board, there’s now an expanded menu for those games. ‘We’ve added first-half and second-half wagers, and three-way lines for 90 minutes and both halves,’ Circa Sports operations manager Jeff Benson said, although that didn’t last, as Liga MX announced Sunday it was indefinitely suspending its games. ‘We’re trying to give our guests as much available to bet as possible. We will be adding the National Rugby League shortly, as well.’


Market Insights: Players approve NFL CBA; A look at each team’s 2020 Win Total by Josh Appelbaum of

Right on cue, Circa Sports released their 2020 NFL Win Totals. Win totals are a great way to gauge the relative strength of each team according to the oddsmakers. Historically, they are quite accurate. Because the win totals are out all spring and summer, the books take in massive action.


2020 NFL win totals at the start of free agency by SportsLine

NFL free agency officially begins when the 2020 league year kicks off at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, but Circa Sportsbook in Las Vegas got an early start on things, releasing win totals for all 32 teams on Sunday night. Teams can’t actually sign players until Wednesday, but the period during which deals could be discussed and agreed upon started on Monday. Circa revealed its win totals less than 24 hours prior to that, with the Baltimore Ravens and reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs leading the pack at 11.5.


DeAndre Hopkins dramatically improves Arizona Cardinals’ 2020 NFL futures odds by SportsLine

“At Circa sportsbook, Arizona went from +7500 to +5000 to win the Super Bowl and Houston from +3500 to +5000. PointsBet dropped the Cardinals to +4000 to win the first title in franchise history and moved Houston up to that same price.


Market Insights: NFL free-agency frenzy begins by Josh Appelbaum of

Cardinals acquire WR DeAndre Hopkins from the Texans in exchange for RB David Johnson and a second-round pick. This is considered a steal for Arizona, which acquired one of the league’s best wideouts and only had to give up an injury-prone running back and a second rounder. Arizona’s win total is 7 (over 110, under -130) at Circa Sports. The Cardinals finished 5-10-1 last season. Does the addition of Hopkins combined with a second year jump for QB Kyler Murray bring this time to 8-8 this season? Meanwhile, losing Hopkins hurts Houston. The Texans went 10-6 last year and their win total for this year is 8.5.


Circa Sports fills void with NFL season win totals by Jim Barnes of Las Vegas Review-Journal

“With free agents agreeing to deals seemingly every few minutes, now isn’t an ideal time for Circa Sports to start taking bets on NFL season win totals. But with virtually every major sporting event postponed or canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Circa team decided it was worth the risk to post something fresh for bettors to devour. ‘I’m not sure they’re the sharpest numbers in the world,’ Circa sportsbook manager Chris Bennett said. ‘But we wanted to get it out there and let people have fun with it.’
