Watching and gambling on football in Las Vegas has changed a lot in the past five years. There are more ways to enjoy both than ever before. Make no mistake, watching and wagering on football inside of a casino sportsbook is still a great experience. However, thanks to the popularity of football you can watch the games all over town. Thanks to mobile apps you can place bets from anywhere in the state of Nevada.
There’s nothing quite like watching football in the massive sportsbooks of Las Vegas. The sportsbooks opening in other states are cute in comparison to the Westgate SuperBook, The Mirage, or Red Rock Casino. There are plenty more great sportsbooks in Las Vegas but you don’t have to feel restricted to the one space to watch the games.
There are sports bars and restaurants all over Las Vegas where you can watch football games. PBR Rock Bar at Planet Hollywood, Tilted Kilt at The Linq, TAP at MGM Grand, and The Still at The Mirage are just some of sports bars with enough TV’s to show every football game on Saturday and Sunday.
Watch Football Outdoors
There are now options if you prefer to watch football in Las Vegas but don’t feel like being stuck indoors. Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas is a rooftop deck with views of the Vegas Strip and Bellagio fountains. They also have plenty of TV’s for football and a variety of bar games if you’d like to multitask.
Topgolf is an indoor/outdoor venue with more than 300 TV’s. In addition to TV’s in each bay where you play the golf games, you’re actually hitting towards three humongous video screens. The various bars at Topgolf have TV’s and there are three more massive screens in The Yard. Additionally, Topgolf Las Vegas at MGM Grand actually has a sportsbook window where you can place football bets.
The Downtown Las Vegas Events Center across the street from the D Las Vegas has football watch parties every Sunday. The outdoor venue has general admission seating, tables you can reserve and even covered “Man Caves” if you want a covered living room experience. Bring sunscreen and enjoy the action. You can find more information about the Downtown Watch Zone here.
Mobile Betting In Las Vegas
Mobile sports betting has made it possible to wager on football (and all sports) from anywhere in Nevada. You could be hiking at Red Rock Canyon and pause to place a wager on a game if you have an account funded. There’s no longer need to be inside the casino to bet on football in Las Vegas.
