Does any of the books let you buy half points when doing a parlay? Do they also let you buy points with straights? I'm assuming maybe the Wynn and the Palms? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

There are really only a handful of books in Vegas.

Palms is part of Cantor Gaming.  So if one allows it, all will (about 8 major books).

Then there is William Hill, Caesars, and Stations. 

Between those, that is 90% of books in Vegas.

I have no idea if any or all allow what you are asking.

Where you there for College Saturday and or NFL Sunday? Many seats and screens? I'm sure the lines were long, but did they have enough windows open? So the line went quickly? Thanks for your input.

Are the lines always the same at each book within their group, such that when it changes at one, it changes at all, and such that you only need to check the lines at one to know what it is at all?

Do they all use phone/tablet aps to let you know their lines without having to physically visit them in person? 

What's an easy way to find online a list of all the sportsbooks run by each parent company?

When you read horror stories about people getting banned for winning too much, does their name go into a banned database such that they're banned from all books in that conglomerate? Do people really run out of places to bet and have to move to New Jersey? 

When they put a limit on how much you can bet on a given event, can you wait awhile, get back in line, and bet more at the same venue? Once you reach their limit in a sportsbook and try to bet at another within the same conglomerate, will they know you maxed out at another one of their books and refuse more wagers on the same event you maxed out on? 

Where are the places to go if you just NEVER want to waste time, gas, and parking fees hassling with low limits that aren't even close to what you want to bet, such as a $300-500 limit when you want to bet $2000+?

Try DonBest.com -- I don't know for sure if there is any service that reflects the odds as they change in real time. But the lines at different sports books will generally reveal simultaneous differences. The one line that will give you winning probabilities in the purest form is the opening line. DonBest provides that. I don't think they calculate it, but they at least transmit it. Not long after the opening lines post, each book will manipulate moneylines, spreads, O/U to get as close as possible to even money -- in other words - just as much cash coming in for the underdog as for the favorite. Or just as much wagered on the over as the under. Every book is going to vary in so far as how it manipulates the lines. hope I haven't confused you.

There are parlay card with half point built in but you can at the counter buy a half point only or use ML instead of spread.

For football you should have no trouble getting down $2000 maybe during a slow day on baseball or basketball you might not 

be able to, but if you use the bigger books and have a player card no problem.

Yes most all have online apps you can use to see odds.

some you have to have a account to log in to see them some you dont.

a site I use is Vegasinsider they have the local and offshore lines on there, 

I am surprised covers dont have more then just a few online and 1 vegas. 

Also I believe Palms is no longer Cantor gaming anymore, The palms got bought out by Red Rock "Stations casino"

And I thought they were changing to their own sportsbook.

For football unless you go early it might be tough to find seats at any casino.

As for different odds and spreads a few casinos have -105 odds if you bet football early like on friday for weekend

But the spreads are usually within a half point. 

I remember a few years back a soccer match at one casino had way way different odds because they had

a bunch of Japanese business men and made there book very lopsided so you could get ++ odds on both sides 

if you went to different casinos
