Navigation: Las Vegas Sportsbooks > South Strip
The southern part of the Las Vegas Strip has a few good sportsbook locations. It’s got Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, New York New York and Tropicana that offer a decent sports experience.
The best betting experiences can be found at the MGM Grand. They have plenty of seats, 104, and enough TV’s for every one watch from with 143. They may have few seats, but what they lack in seating, they more than make up with the extreme comfort and pleasure of betting there.
The best, other than the MGM Grand, would be the bettor friendly Mandalay Bay. Bettors will have 300 seats to choose from, where they can easily watch any sport on the 101 TV’s. Sports betting is a great experience at the MGM Grand, while the Luxor and Excalibur don’t offer such a great overall experience. New York New York and Tropicana are great but lack that special aspect that would make then even better.

South Las Vegas Sportsbooks
Aria is not the only Las Vegas Strip properties to not offer a fully equipped sportsbook. Bettors will see that it has a limited sportsbook with only 24 seats; however, they have 101 TV’s, making it great place to watch as you pass by. There are probably uncounted seats in the bar and restaurant area. Bettors will still get the same attention as other locations. More serious bettors will probably find different places to wager at.
Excalibur has a nice casino, but the sportsbooks is different. Even with 145 seats they are not favored. Sportsbooks wagers are available to everyone. Few prefer Excalibur when it comes to sports betting.
Luxor has deteriorated as it has been in business for more than 20 years. As such, bettors may find that the 110 seats may not be the type they want to sit and bet on; although there are good reviews of the TV’s, which total 132 and easily viewable. It is usually open between 8 am and 10 pm most days, with the exception being Fridays and Saturdays where it’s open until 11 pm.
Mandalay Bay is one of the biggest casinos in Las Vegas. The space they dedicate to their sportsbook section is great, packing in 300 seats for their patrons. They are open every day starting from 7-8 am until 10:30 pm, and 1 am Fridays and Saturdays. This is certainly one of the bigger sportsbooks that any bettor can enjoy.
MGM Grand is another popular casino that offers a smaller yet higher quality sportsbook, comparing the area to others. Bettors that want to sit back and relax can do so on all of their 104 seats which cater to 143 TV’s. They offer some great sportsbooks odds, which incidentally are some of the best sportsbook odds in Las Vegas. Sportsbooks lines are updated instantly. It also runs from 8 am until 10 pm most days, where they open until 11 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
Monte Carlo does not seem to use their space well, as other MGM properties do. Bettors using one of the 150 seats may not get a good angle to watch on their 19 TV’s. Overall is does not seem like the type of place that many bettors would use. Amateur bettors may find it appealing, and will have plenty of time to do so as it is open from 8 am to 10 pm.
New York New York
New York New York offers a small area with 40 seats to watch sports from. Even though there are few seats and TV’s, the quality is enough to bring in experienced sportsbook bettors. The betting kiosks are close by. They do offer comps on sports bets, and bettors may benefit from some of their great special events. They have all types of sportsbooks wagers and props.
Tropicana is on the small side, but their sportsbook packs in a lot of quality into all of their sports betting. They have 62 seats along with 45 TV’s. They remain open until 10:30 pm most days and 1 am from Friday to Sunday.
