Here Are The Operators Launching Online Colorado Sportsbooks On Friday (And Those In Queue) by Jill Dorson and Matt Rybaltowski of

“‘The Colorado market is a perfect launching point for Circa Sports’ non-Nevada ambitions, specifically because of remote registration,; Circa Sports Strategic Operations Manager Mike Van Ermen told Centennial Bets. ‘Remote registration is a great equalizer; customers can make decisions based on the value and product offered by the sportsbook, not just based on which book is closest to them. In this regard, we think we have a tremendous advantage.’


Will NFL Draft betting continue to grow? by Micah Roberts of Gaming Today

“Circa Sports had their first NFL Draft experience and found themselves a small winner among the dozens of props they offered despite some early skepticism. ‘I don’t really have a reference point to comment on the handle, but I thought it was respectable given our mobile app customer demographic,’ said Circa Sports manager Chris Bennett. ‘We were a small winner on the draft. I figured it was an underdog to make money going in, so we’ll happily take the result.'”


Circa Sports Review & Bonus Information by

“The fact that Circa will enter the Colorado market should have other operators on notice. One of the sticking points about some of the other operators in the gambling space after PASPA was overturned by Murphy v. NCAA in May 2018 has been higher vig and higher hold percentage. If Circa adopts a similar strategy to what has worked in Las Vegas, it would force the Colorado operators to be competitive.

Las Vegas oddsmakers say sports without fans will impact lines by Todd Dewey of Las Vegas Review-Journal

“Other consensus opinions were that NFL games would potentially be higher-scoring without crowd noise and that there would be fewer upsets and comebacks in all sports without the energy of a live audience. ‘Everyone says it will favor the offense because they can hear all the plays called out and there will be less false starts,’ Circa Sports sportsbook manager Chris Bennett said. ‘But it will favor the defense, too, especially on the road at places like New Orleans and Green Bay, if they aren’t worried about the crowd noise.'”


Colorado launches sports betting and it will be huge by Patrick Everson of Covers

“The SuperBook, Circa Sports and several others are putting finishing touches on their products – be they retail, mobile app or both – and waiting for the U.S. sports landscape to reopen before launching in Colorado. Circa Sports strategic operations manager Mike Van Ermen believes customers will find the wait worthwhile.

‘We’re really excited about Colorado. We feel our mobile app has already established itself as an absolute must for sports bettors, and remote registration in Colorado gives every customer an opportunity to bet with us, no matter where they are,’ Van Ermen said. ‘Timelines have shifted for us, and we plan to launch when it makes more sense. Residents of Colorado can look forward to industry-leading menu options and an honest, fair operation.'”
