    The LVH Superbook is the king of all sportsbooks for NFL Sunday, IMO.

    Getting four seats on a football weekend can be tough. Get up early. Otherwise, I like Mandalay Bay, Bellagio, or Caesars

    Are you planning on betting non stop during the games or only betting on one game and then drinking free drinks while watching it?

    If the owner of the casino came to your house on sunday and gave you a few dollars would you feed him free beer the rest of the day while he sat around?

    Mandalay Bay is our favorite Sportsbook by far.

    I used to go to the sportsbook at Excalibur. It would get a pretty good crowd on Sundays and they have a beer and hot dog special at the bar (was $2 when we started hanging out there, but iirc its up to $4 now).

    Hence the reason they generally only give you drink tickets based on how much you bet. But either way, who cares? If they're giving away the free drinks you'd be a fool to feel bad for them.

    Wouldn't disagree. But I haven't stepped foot in the Mirage since January. Has anyone seen the revamped book yet?

    I was too. They've increased their seating and taken out many of the horse betting terminals.

    I saw it. It's very nice. Not sure how it will play on a football Sunday, but it's huge.

    Wow, that is a long day, especially if you are talking saturday football. Games can start as early as 9AM vegas time and keep going until almost midnight!

    I've done this at Aria before. Really helped when the Skybox to-go place was still open. Was there by myself and met a ton of people watching different games. It was an awesome day of sports betting/watching.

    Wow. I love betting/watching sports, but there is no way I could do it for 12+ hours straight. Although if I were, one of the couches at the Aria book would be the way to do it

    The Mirage is incredible now! The whole left side that used to have 3 90 year olds making $3 horse bets is now sports. The whole wall is a screen which can show 4 games on BIG screens or 2 games on HUGE screens. Bring a sweater it's like a meat locker in there.
