Hello. Is it possible to catch better lines then pinnacle in LV Sportsbooks? They catch/track line movements fast? What was the highest point difference you witnessed? 1 or 2? (I'm asking for nba, nfl and mlb)

2- Is it possible to shop for best line in Vegas? I mean every book has a different line, correct? Or they all take odds/line from one source and usually they have all same line?

thanks in advance!

The lines are almost always better at pinny, my experience.
Theres some variation but its too much of a hassle running around between casinos to line shop.

Unless you have friends with cell phones posted in each rival book on the  strip, the best way to price shop in Vegas is Downtown.  There all the casinos are within a 3-block walk and Fremont Street is closed to vehicular traffic making the walks easy.

What I found curous was at the Golden Gate Hotel in downtown Vegas.  They don't have a sportsbook but a little kiosk where you deposit money, kind of like the way you put dollar bills in a slot machine.  The kiosk has a screen with the lines on them, it's like betting on your computer at home.

lines are always better at pinnacle? but arent they a little bit slow to change lines? can we chase stream at vegas books?

there be 1.5 or 2 points difference between vegas and pinnacle? if yes, we can get better price then pinny at vegas.

Pinnacle's line moves don't mean a thing since they bent over for the US government back in 2007. Pinnacle is yesterday's news.

There's very little difference in the lines you'll find at Las Vegas sportsbooks. So many of the sportsbooks are tied together and the sportsbooks keep two screens on at all times. The first screen has current lines at Las Vegas sportsbooks and the second screen has offshore prices. As soon as they see a move or two, they change the line whether they've taken a bet or not.

Ive only been two Vegas twice but from my experience i have always gotten better lines out on the resorts away from the city.  Green Valley Ranch and M Resort give you some good lines way out there.

Ahhh I wish I remember the site/app, but it gave you updated lines for each sportsbook in vegas. You could literally lineshop the "strip" from your phone.  99% of the time the lines would be up to date. Cantor, Harrahs PH, etc all in one place it's the age of technology you dont have to go running from place to place, I think it was "Allvegasodds," or "allvegassports" or something, damn it... I wish I remember...

Yes, I got some great lines in Vegas a few weeks ago because they are slow to adjust the lines to the quick movement seen on Pinnicle.  At times I got up to a 2 and a half point advantage,.
