I will be arriving in Vegas the first week of March and plan on spending a lot of my time in a few of the sportsbooks.  I have never been to Vegas so I wanted your alls input on which hotel had the best sportsbook and why.

Thanks a lot guys

Bellagio!

Enormous TVs, awesome chairs, huge spread board.

Aria had a weak sportsbook.

Venetian Ok

Paris weak

Caesars not bad.

Rio Poor.

Palms pretty good.

If I were going for NCAA and had my pick of those, it would be Bellagio hands down.

I think it depends on what you are looking for in a sports book. The M resort is a nice book for the gambler that is there to play rather than enjoy the game. Some casinos are designed for comfort and fun while others are kinda focused on the betters. I have not been but I have heard the Hilton has the nicest sports book in Vegas. I myself stay off strip and usually go to the M casino. Not very comfortable seating but the staff is friendly and the cocktail servers are sexy.

bb....Danny makes a good point....taking it a little further..."What do you want in a sportsbook?"....easier to try and help you with some insight into what you are looking for...

In terms of "action"...the people who run the book at The M (Cantor Gaming) also run the book at The Tropicana, The Hard Rock, The Cosmopolitan, and have their technology at The Venetian....

I feel the same way.  The place looks super nice and I really want to stay there I just wish they built it on the strip.

that is one of the nice things about the M to me--it is off strip,,just a short cab ride and has much more of a resort feel than any of the giants on the strip

FYI:  The sportsbook at The M took in over 20% of the ENTIRE betting handle for the state of Nevada in 2010....Just one book....They can, and do, handle bets that no one else will take.
