(PRESS RELEASE) -- VSiN (Vegas Stats & Information Network) sports gaming experts and South Point Hotel Casino and Spa unveiled the opening lines and shared insights for the 2017 NCAA Basketball Tournament during a Selection Sunday special that aired on SiriusXM and streamed on VSiN. Just minutes after the first-round matchups for the tournament were announced, Brent Musburger, Vinny Magliulo, Jimmy Vaccaro, Chris Andrews and Richie Baccellieri set and announced the opening lines.
Adding to the excitement of the afternoon, Derek Stevens, CEO and Owner of the D Las Vegas Hotel and Casino and Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, bet $11,000 to win $10,000 on every game. Earlier in the week, Stevens wired $352,000 to the South Point Hotel Sports Book. He sat alongside VSiN host Brent Musburger and bet using NV Sports, South Point Hotel's mobile wagering app.
VSiN also launched its first contest, the "2017 VSiN Beat The Spread Challenge," inviting participants to pick the winners of all the Division I men's basketball tournament games against the opening spread. First prize for the overall winner is a two-night complimentary stay at South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa, $1,000 and an appearance on Musburger's "My Guys in the Desert" show on SiriusXM. Cash prizes of $250 will be awarded to the top point-getter in Rounds 1, 2 and 3. There is no entry fee to play. For additional details, please visit VSiN's contest page.
