As college football teams compete in the final games of the season, fans will swarm Las Vegas for the ultimate viewing and betting locations. With a plethora of options including sports books, bars and more lining the Strip, the VEGAS.com experts lead fans to the Hail Mary route and recommend the hot spots to get in on all the action:

  • Fanatics can work up an appetite at Cabo Wabo Cantina with the Planet Hollywood restaurant’s game time specials including $5 buffalo chicken nachos and buckets of fries and $10 bucket of wings. Open daily from 11 a.m. to midnight, sports nuts will be cheering for victory.
  • Take it to the next level and step into the “Man Cave” at McFadden’s Restaurant and Saloon at the Rio. The private area, which includes three couches, three high-definition TVs along with food and beverages of choice, is available for a team of fans to reserve for the big games.
  • A premier destination for football enthusiasts, The Pub at Monte Carlo surrounds sports fans with numerous TVs and big screens. Featuring more than 50 beers and adult milkshakes, the Pub is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday—Thursday, and goes into overtime on Friday and Saturdays, open until 3 a.m.

With plush seating and TV screens of mammoth proportions, Las Vegas sports books offer pigskin addicts more than a center for betting. VEGAS.com experts recommend placing your bets on these unique sports books:

  • Offering Vegas’ only skyboxes, the MGM Grand Race and Sports Book recently upgraded to 47 plasma big screens in addition to its three 16-foot-by-12-foot big screens and six electronic display boards. Guests can step into the game and reserve the four unique skyboxes for groups of 10.
  • Reach the end zone in VIP fashion at the Caesars Palace Race and Sports Book. Located in the heart of Strip, amid all the action, the state-of-the-art sports book was built in true Vegas tradition with six big screens and a colossal 20-foot-by30-foot TV.
  • The Venetian Race and Sports Book, operated by Cantor Gaming, sports a 100-foot-long high definition screen that showcases up to 34 different sporting events simultaneously. The premier sports book often holds contests and special events during college bowl season.
