    Have made bets & hung out at just about every sports book in town, both on the strip & off it, except for a few downtown. Do miss the book at the Tropicana, it was great, but its just a small betting station now.
    Do love the Caesars Palace sports book, as the improvements they made to it just a few years ago have made it really nice. That's our favorite one. With the book at The Mirage a close 2nd. Both books offer lots of space, good seating, big screens, good drink service, & lots of betting options. Looking forward to seeing the new Circa sports book in the Circa Las Vegas when it opens in 2020.

    Good thread! It's funny, Mirage was always the go to back 5-10 years, and Caesars post-upgrade has amazing screens (and i have worn that VP bar out), but these days I find myself loving the tiny Cromwell book. Never crowded, never a line, amazing screens, comfy seats, great food and bar service.... It's become my go to!

    Honorable (RIP) Mention to the old LINQ book... the screens weren't any good at all, but man, those big ol chairs right off the strip were a great place to plop down and rest for a bit on more than a few occasions.

    I like Aria. It has lots of seating, decent drink service, is smoke free and the lines are well managed. I wish it had the old school screens to post the lines, but that is my only complaint

    I also spend a lot of time in the sportsbooks. Not a fan of the new style book---Linq, Venetain/Pallazzo, Park MGM.... I love Westgate and Excalibur. Luxor and Red Rock OK. Not too big of a fan of Aria, don't like the way they post their lines on screens above, but Laurel loves to play here so it is what it is..

    I love the big comfy couches at Paris sportsbook plus the fact it's so secluded and never crowded. Bellagio I think has the best leather chairs is right next to their excellent poker room and Snack bar but always seems to be packed. My goto book to hang out to/from the airport is Mandalay Bay, easy self parking, huge screens, and nice seating. For downtown, The California has a nice little sportsbook that seems recently renovated with comfy chairs and bar seating to chill and watch games for a while.

    I like Caesars. I can grab a seat and watch the games when it's quiet or have a seat at the VP bar when it's busier for a game.

    Westgate, Red Rock and Southpoint.

    I also like to watch baseball games at Mirage and Caesars.

    I second Wynn. I guess it helps my biggest wins in LV all happened there.

    Some reasons I love the South Point:

    1) It is massive compared to virtually every other sportsbook I have been to- huge number of seats and whole lounge behind it to sit and watch games
    2) It is 24 hours
    3) $1.25 hot dogs (or are they $1.50- I can never remember until I am there)
    4) Very friendly sports book staff

    Westgate is the pinnacle of books as far as the way it is operated. Not many come close to the betting options they provide. Jay K does an amazing job running that place. In saying that, I think Circa is going to give them a serious run.

    I find myself being drawn to the smaller books these days. Encore and Cromwell are my favorites. In addition to the reasons @TxTeach79 provided above, I just find it easier to track multiple games there than in a cavernous book.
