As Vegas reopens, sportsbooks anticipate sports betting boom by Patrick Everson of Covers

Derek Stevens, owner of The D and Golden Gate in downtown Las Vegas, has easily been Vegas’ biggest cheerleader and ambassador in getting the engine chugging again. ‘It’s been a long time,’ Stevens said just before his properties’ midnight reopening, followed a few hours later by the Circa Sports books located within. ‘This has been a great week, seeing everybody coming back to work. We’re fired up and ready to go.’


Could Cezanne upstage Santa Anita Derby? by Ron Flatter of

“‘I could see the horse potentially floating back up,’ said Paul Zilm, risk supervisor at Circa Sports. ‘Will we see 55-1 again? Probably not. You might see him at 30-1 or a little bit higher. Or you might see him drop if we see a superstar effort first time out.’


Tiz The Law is Belmont favorite Circa by Ron Flatter of

“The winner of the Florida Derby, Tiz The Law ( 195) opened Friday afternoon at predictably short odds at Circa Sports, the year-old Las Vegas sportsbook that just got into the racing business last month with its first Kentucky Derby futures… ‘The other books had no influence on our odds,’ Circa Sports risk supervisor Paul Zilm said. ‘We didn’t look at anyone else until after we released ours.’


Honor A. P. is A. N(ew) Derby favorite by Ron Flatter of

“‘All things being equal we really feel that Tiz The Law is the favorite right now,’ said risk supervisor Paul Zilm, who writes Circa’s futures with sportsbook director Matt Metcalf. ‘The discussion for us is who’s next? We really struggled with Authentic, Honor A. P. and Maxfield. We found a lot of pros for all three of them. So we decided that if they’re all pretty even, let’s put them all in the same spot and see where the action takes it.’


Eager bettors return to Las Vegas as casinos reopen by David Purdum of ESPN

“‘I found out I must run cold because my body temperature’s been 97.8 every single time,’ said DeRosa, who cashed a $63,000 ticket on Lamar Jackson to win the 2019 NFL regular-season MVP at Circa Sports while he was in town. In total, DeRosa says he made over $300,000 on a series of bets he made on Jackson to win the MVP last year.


A Look Inside Circa Sports’ Crystal Ball for Building Horseracing Futures Bets by Brian Robin of

“Being around horseplayers for much of his life, the outgoing Zilm knew Derby futures appealed to everyone: casual horseplayers who pay attention to the Triple Crown races and little else, and the more avid horseplayers constantly seeking big paydays for small wagers. At the same time, Metcalf and Circa Sportsbook Manager Chris Bennett — who created Circa’s encyclopedic list of Super Bowl prop bets – wanted more. They wanted to create a Derby prop nobody else had.


Stevens, Circa Sports goes big for return by Buck Wargo of Gaming Today

“Stevens said he’s excited for the return of major American sports and wagering on it and that Circa is moving ahead with its two NFL pick contests with $4 million in prizes. With the shutdown of sports, Stevens joked he was able to cut down on his betting losses to focus on learning to use technology for conferences and meetings. Meanwhile, he said he’s excited to see major American sports return, even though German soccer, UFC and Korean baseball are filling a void for some bettors.
