Fox Sports 1 Embracing the Las Vegas Sports Book Scene

Las Vegas Sports Books Aren’t off Limits Anymore

It wasn’t in front of a stadium or arena, nor was it on a major college campus. For the first time in the history of major sports networks, Fox Sports 1 set up shop at the LVH Super Book in Las Vegas Nevada – a place that is synonymous with the glory of sports betting in Las Vegas.

As part of Fox Sports 1’s coverage of the opening week of MarchMadness, a set was constructed in the corner of the sports book in order for Todd Fuhrman and the gang to report on March Madness information with a “Vegas” slant. Fox Sports 1 has embraced the betting angle of sports, welcoming an activity that millions already enjoy via sports books, fantasy sports, and other means.

Segments were recorded for Fox Sports Live, which is trying to do things differently than the nightly sports juggernaut that is Sports Center. They are off to a good start and this was a good move to endear themselves to sports enthusiasts that also follow the “line” action in Vegas. Or if nothing else, for the sports book geeks like myself to get all giddy when they see a Las Vegas sports book on television. It would be a wonderful thing if Fox Sports 1 made this a regular occurrence during football season.
