-110 is standard juice at Nevada sportbooks, -105 is illogical, and cannot be found at any LV Sportbooks......

-105 isn't illogical ,it just isn't done because it would create an even smaller bottom line for the sportsbooks that the Casinos really wish they didn't have to run in the first place.
Casinos don't like sports because even with -110 there isn't a built in rate of return like slots,craps and keno.If the vig was -120 that wouldn't protect the book from an informed public.You can see how much the books want to encourage sports bets by the fact they will comp you a cup of coffee for a bet of 2k.
There are many offshore books that run a vig less then -110 and the op probably wanted to know why can't Vegas be like an Off-shore.Vegas is concerned with Vegas and they could care less with competition for something that is merely a favor for the guests.

The question was "are their any sportbooks in LV that offer -105 vig....illogical meanining: for the book, not the bettor. what on earth does craps, slots, and keno, off-shore books have to do with answering a simple question? get back on the grid, your opinion has NO merit whatsoever....why not "their are no books that offer -105" period...

Yes, Depending on the bet and sport

The superbook and William hill do have some -105 bets for MLB 

If the Line is near even when it goes up like past  -150 and -200 they go up to -110 and -115 or something like that.

I believe the superbook also used to have -105 fridays during football, but dont remember the details.

MLB & NHL are  ML wagers, the -110
vig is attached to pointspread leagues, NBA & NFL the topic of discussion "does vegas offer -105 vig at any sportbooks? Not -105 ML..get it?

really was NOT that clear to me, s_N. most Las Vegas sportsbooks have a "5 cent line" (an "even" bet is -105 each way) for Baseball and the Westgate has a "5 cent line" for NHL Hockey

Sands used to be -105 in the old days under Gregorka-- he received a lot of threats over this.

As soon as the Supremes ok sportsbetting you'll see plenty of -105.

I want to say that at one time the Station Casinos use to offer a -105 line on Fridays during NFL.Since this is a Locals Casino they were small limit and really wanted to increase foot traffic for their off-strip casinos.If some low-information type wants to rip me a new asss-hole,then of-course it never happened.....

yeah on occasion you would see a -105 line just on one game as some sort of promotion.  there is no -105 sportsbook.  right now westgate offers -110 in-play betting which is pretty darn good considering will hill and stations and boyd does -115.  so there is at least someone trying to outduel the other books so u never know it could happen.
