|Good question, think I might be able to help somewhat. I frequently travel to and have lived in Vegas. Here's what I've seen so far. I am a Platinum member of both Harrah's Total Rewards and Mlife.

Most important thing is to find the best line!!! What's more important to your bottom line, a free room/comps, convenience, 1 point or a -110 over a -125? That's all on you. But I have gone all the way from the MGM to the Hilton for -15 on the money line on a big bet. At a $1,000 bet, that's $100 difference, which is easily a room/dinner/tix to Cirque.
Total Rewards does give Tier credits at the sports book which can be used for room upgrades and such, depending on your current card level. Only downfall is they hose you on the ratio. Last time I was up there the old lady at the ticket counter said it was still 10 Tier credits per $100 bet. Which is total bullshit, but better than nothing. It always pisses me off that you can go to the book, bet $2,000 on a team and get your measly 200 credits. Or you can take that $2,000 sit at the Blackjack table for 2 hours and walk away with a room, dinner or show tickets. It's the same $2,000. Bullshit!!! Sorry about my rant, anyway, as far as table games, Total Rewards is a little greedy when it comes to accumulating tier credits. I've had some decent and long sessions at Planet Hollywood and Caesars and was shocked at how few credits I accumulated.
Mlife doesn't give you jack garbage for sports. But they are pretty good about giving points and comps depending on your level for table games. Their points are a lot like air miles, the higher your tier, the more points you get for money cashed in, time played and bet per hand.
I know there are some casinos off the strip, like the Station ones I think, that comp at the sports book just like at the tables. But I can't remember the name, saw it on a billboard, sorry.
So for me, it's Total Rewards for sports AND if they have a decent line. Mlife if I feel like blowing $$ at the Tables. Hope this helped. Good luck to you all.
