Las Vegas Advisor: Football parties are back in Las Vegas casinos and bars by Anthony Curtis of Honolulu Star-Advertiser

More evidence of Las Vegas’ return to normalcy is evident in the resumption of football parties in casinos and bars. While the parties aren’t as robust as they were pre-pandemic, there are still some good gatherings throughout the city. On weekends, the casino sports books are packed, drawing in people with all the games showing on the big screens. Busiest are Las Vegas’ two premier sports books at Circa and Westgate.


Raiders bail out Vegas books by not covering in win over Miami by Todd Dewey of Las Vegas Review-Journal

“The books also won big on the Chargers’ 30-24 win over the Chiefs as 7-point underdogs and the Lions’ cover as 7½-point underdogs to the Ravens in a heartbreaking 19-17 home loss. All it took was Justin Tucker’s game-winning, NFL-record, 66-yard field goal that bounced over the crossbar after Baltimore converted a fourth-and-19. That saved 340 $1,000 entries from elimination in the Circa Survivor contest, which pays $6 million to the winner.


Last Woman Standing goes for 2nd straight NFL winner by Jim Barnes of Las Vegas Review-Journal

“Amber Hanover, who won Station Casinos’ NFL Last Man Standing contest last season, had an easy winner with Panthers +3½ in her first week giving out an NFL play to the Review-Journal. Carolina defeated the New Orleans Saints 26-7. Hanover remains in the race to successfully defend her Last Man Standing title, with three entries remaining after two weeks. She also has two entries left in the college LMS contest, and she is 8-2 (tied for 83rd) after two weeks in the Circa Sports Million.


Notable bets: Tucker’s kick saves one of the most popular weekend bets by David Purdum of ESPN

“Alabama opened as a 20-point favorite over Ole Miss at 2 p.m. PT Sunday at Las Vegas sportsbook Circa Sports. There were more than 10 limit bets placed on the Rebels in the first hours since the game was on the board, and no limit bets on Alabama. By 6 p.m. PT, the number had dropped to Crimson Tide -14.5.


Part I: Sporttrade CEO On How Betting Exchanges Fill A Market Void by Christopher Gerlacher of Gaming Today

The type of traditional sports betting that appeals to Kane the most is the Vegas-style of sports betting. In Nevada, bookmakers can and do place bets. At Circa Sports in Nevada, bettors and bookmakers can compete directly. However, the sportsbook app also has features that Kane appreciates. First, Circa Sports goes through a process called price discovery.

‘They’re [Circa Sports] not going to look at where the rest of the world is in terms of what the odds are,’ said Kane. ‘They’re going to open their lines before DraftKings, before FanDuel, before all of them, and sharp bettors are going to come in and help them shape the line.’

Bettor control is central to his vision of Sporttrade, so it’s no wonder that this aspect of Circa Sports inspires praise. Bettors on Sporttrade also shape the share prices, making this an important commonality between this traditional sportsbook and Kane’s betting exchange.
