Best Las Vegas Sports Books for Watching NFL & College Football – Five Solid Options

With NFL and College football season in full swing, Las Vegas sports books are buzzing with activity on autumn weekends as locals and visitors alike take in all of the pigskin action. There are dozens of sports book choices in Vegas and for the most part, all of them have something unique to offer. But which Vegas sports books are the best for enjoying football? Here’s what we at The Vegas Parlay think are the top options for NFL and college football viewing in Vegas (in no particular order).


LVH – The LVH sports book is the world’s largest and on top of that, a separate theater that holds over 1,500 people is opened up on NFL Sundays for the ultimate football viewing party.  Parking here is a breeze so you won’t miss any of the football action due to a long walk from the parking structure.
Touchdown – cheap food, easy parking access, a large-sized and very comfortable sports book, The LVH Theater aka Football Central is a party every Sunday.
Punt  – Off-strip location, condition of the LVH property, which is in need of a facelift, food choices limited to “sports bar” cuisine.


Wynn – A classy spot and beautifully decorated sports book. The sports book has easy access from level 2 of the parking structure. As with all Wynn related amenities, the service is excellent. Zoozacrackers Deli (they will bring your meal right to your sports book seat) and other great food options are adjacent to the sports book.
Touchdown – Easy parking access, great customer service, excellent food choices nearby, and an intimate setting as this modern sports book was not built in the “SuperBook” mold.
Punt – Large screens for viewing are limited, good food is available nearby but pricey to coincide with the upscale Wynn, seating can be limited on big sports days
Palazzo Lagasse’s Stadium – The former location of Jay Z’s 40/40 Club, Lagasse’s Stadium is one of the more unique sports books in all of Las Vegas. The space is a hybrid stadium/lounge set up that caters to an upscale crowd. If you want to impress friends or business associates, Lagasse’s Stadium is the spot…but be prepared to pay for the luxury as per person minimums of up to $100 for couch accommodations are the norm for busy sports days.
Touchdown – Unique and upscale, excellent viewing sight lines and ultra high def screens, Emeril Lagasse’s food menu, good service.
Punt – minimum food/drink orders to sit in certain lounge spots, free drinks only offered to “whale” type of bettors, reservations must be made way in advance to assure seating.

Planet Hollywood – The modern design and convenience of Planet Hollywood’s “The Playing Field” Race and Sports Book makes it a great spot for watching and betting on football. There are a plethora of screens available and sight lines for viewing in this space are some of the best in Vegas. Plus, the adjacent bar makes cocktail/refreshment service a breeze and the Earl of Sandwich, known for having some of the best sandwiches in town, is only steps away.
Touchdown – Friendly sports book staff, ultra-comfortable seating and well placed video screens, quality (and inexpensive) food option in The Earl of Sandwich nearby, intimate setting.
Punt – Restroom is not nearby, sports book is easily accessible from the strip but a long walk from the Planet Hollywood parking structure, free drinks can be hard to come by at times.
Caesars Palace – One of the oldest sports books on the Las Vegas Strip, Caesars still maintains a classy vibe in their spacious and elegant sports book. Large screens and ample seating is what you’ll find in a very open space which is a throw back to the “Super Book” era of Las Vegas sports books. And yes, classy and all, the crowd here can get very loud during big football days.
Touchdown – Classic Las Vegas all the way, great customer service, bathrooms are nearby, multitude of screens for easy football viewing, good cocktail service.
Punt – A bit of a journey from the strip and the parking structure, nearby food options are limited, can get busy (limited seating) on big football viewing days.
