Where To Watch Your Favorite NFL Team

September 12, 2012 at 2:14 PM | by | Comments (3)

Football season is here! We're all stoked! You can find almost everything there is to know about watching NFL football in our 2012 Guide To Everything Pigskin In Las Vegas, some great resources to prepare your betting and our favorite sportsbooks to watch and bet on the games.

But, wait… there's more! Las Vegas is awesome, but one of its perceived negatives turns out to be a positive for pro football fans. That negative is that Las Vegas is seen as a transient town. People come from everywhere, live for a minute and move on. For NFL fans, that is a positive.

Prepare For Football Betting With These Great Resources

September 4, 2012 at 2:28 PM | by | Comments (8)

For weeks, we've been thinking that the NFL season can't come soon enough so we're thankful that the season finally kicks off tomorrow! We don't just love to watch the games, we enjoy betting on them, too.

We're not professional gamblers and don't have 100+ hours a week to devote to researching football so we turn to those that get paid to research the game so we can make our (somewhat educated) picks. These are some of our favorite resources for betting football (pro & college):

Can't Get Enough Football Contests, Right?

August 27, 2012 at 3:35 PM | by | Comments (0)

After what seems like an eternity, football season has finally returned to us with the college football season kicking off this week and the NFL season beginning next week. The Giants and Cowboys have the first night of the NFL season all to themselves on Wednesday, September 5. This leaves us with only nine days to prepare for the football contests being held at the sportsbooks in Vegas this season.

The SuperContest at LVH has received almost twice the entries it had this time last year while William Hill and Station Casinos also got their football contests underway a little while ago, too. But, wait there's more!

Before The Season Kicks Off, Brush Up On Football Betting Basics

August 13, 2012 at 1:10 PM | by | Comments (2)

Football season begins at the end of this month with the kickoff to the college football season. The NFL begins shortly after when the Dallas Cowboys play the New York Giants on Wednesday, September 5. Before the chaos of the season begins, we wanted to go over some of the basic ways to bet on football so everyone can enjoy the games.

Before going over the bets, it's important to know how the casino makes its money. Casinos charge a 10% fee on most wagers. If you want to sound fancy this is called "The Vig." This means that if you want to win $100, you'll have to wager $110. Do the math up or down depending on how much you plan on betting if even numbers matter to you.

Wagering On NFL Games Off To Early Start

April 18, 2012 at 3:03 PM | by | Comments (0)

NFL wagering opportunities have been available since shortly after the Super Bowl Big Game with futures odds on who will be the next Super Bowl winners. Now, the first week of NFL games are open for wagers thanks to LVH.

In recent years, the release of the NFL schedule has become kind of a big deal. Everyone from ESPN to Deadspin covers this day with almost the same vigor as they cover the March Madness bracket match-ups. If there wasn't a hungry market for this, then the coverage wouldn't be there. Speaking to a friend that works for a sports website, we learned that this is one of the busiest times of the year for NFL-related web traffic. It makes sense since every team still has a chance to win the Super Bowl.

The Real Big Game(s) Ahead

January 17, 2012 at 7:35 PM | by | Comments (0)

The Super Bowl is a special day in Vegas. It's one of the busiest weekends all year. The Super Bowl is also known as the "Big Game" for contractual reasons (the NFL won't let companies use the name unless they pay), but here's a secret -- the Super Bowl isn't really the big game. The best day of football is ahead of us. This Sunday. The AFC and NFC conference finals are typically the most fun to watch in the entire NFL season.
