A trying time for the books and bettors by Micah Roberts of GamingToday

Circa sports have been booking those leagues and a few others with Rugby, Bellator, and UFC as well as creating and posting 2020 NFL season win totals — Chiefs and Ravens highest totals at 11.5 wins.

The Circa crew is doing a great job of communicating on Twitter when asked questions about season win totals in NHL and NBA that are likely to be refunded because of not playing 82 games, and The Masters future wagers likely being refunded because of not being played within eight days of the scheduled event. They refunded all 2020 futures on NCAA basketball, baseball, and hockey.


Future book has good opportunities by Micah Roberts of GamingToday

In this downtime before the sports leagues get back to work do yourself a favor and go downtown, sign-up for the Circa app, and get the best prices for each race. They offer the best value for all futures and it’s by design to give them a competitive edge.

What separates one sportsbook from another? They all offer lines on games, they all show the games live, most have in-progress wagering, most are clean and offer great guest service with comps available. But it’s in the price splits and future odds offered by Circa that gives them an edge.

Tough decisions around mobile sports betting being made in wake of Coronavirus by Patrick Everson of Covers

“‘The first thing we did was reach out to Nevada Gaming Control Board Chairwoman Sandra Morgan. She approved keeping the app open as a functioning part of the business,’ Circa director of sportsbook operations Jeff Benson told Covers. ‘Secondly, Derek Stevens is very committed and passionate to keeping the risk room open. We’re going to try to provide our customers with as many wagering opportunities as possible, while there’s not as many American sports to bet on.’


Westgate considers renewed push for election betting by Jim Barnes of Las Vegas Review-Journal

Circa Sports sportsbook manager Chris Bennett said he would ‘certainly be eager’ to take bets on the election if Circa executives approved. ‘Gaming has to be receptive to approving new gaming options, he said, given the dearth of sporting events amid the coronavirus pandemic.


Mobile sports betting apps offering varied wagering menus by Micah Roberts of GamingToday

Circa Sports director Matt Metcalf said he was pleasantly surprised with the action and win on some of the sports that include Australia A League and Belarusian Premier League soccer.

‘Derek (Circa owner Stevens) has tasked us with trying to be as creative as possible and make as many markets as we’re able to,’ Metcalf said. ‘We’ve had multiple professional bettors reach out to us saying they don’t care what the sport is just to keep making markets and I couldn’t agree more with that request. We are here to accept wagers on anything we are legally able to and allow for customers to try and make money off those events whether it’s Australian football or our attempt at iRacing.’
