Been in town twice during NFL playoffs. To be honest, a regular season Sunday draws a better crowd to sports books than a playoff weekend. That said, they still should be hopping.
If you want to do something unique, might I suggest booking a VIP table at one of the books. I've done it at Mirage as an example. Of course for a novice, simply experiencing a game at a book is a unique enough experience.
Yes just seeing the people and the fuzz in one of the Big sportsbooks is great for him. But thought of something like downtown watchzone.
But we are transferering from PH to delano that sunday so thought that the MB sportsbook is right below the elevators. But maybe some of the bars and restaurants close by have something.
But I wouldnt mind to uber somewhere for the right experience: I watched the conference finals in Caesars one year and it was great.
The sports book is more open to the casino instead of walled off like most so there is a large number of folks gathering to watch the game. Also, there are table games nearby where you can gamble, but still watch the game.
I watched sports there last trip as I stayed there and yes it is great. It seems like we will do it in a sportsbook: All of your saved places can be found here in My Trips.

Top 10 things to do and see Grand Canyon West; 3. Where is the best burger? Several times between —89, the two wild-card games had to be played on different days.
Normally they both would be held on Sunday. In and , the games were split between Saturday and Monday because Sunday was Christmas, and the NFL had avoided playing on that day at the time.
In , both games were played in the Pacific Time Zone , so they had to be played on Saturday and Sunday to accommodate for time differences.
In , both the New York Giants and Jets hosted wild-card games. As they have shared a home stadium since , the games had to be played on different days.
For the season , a third wild-card team for each conference was added, expanding the playoffs to the current twelve teams.
The lowest-seeded division winner was then "demoted" to the wild-card weekend. Also, the restrictions on intra-divisional games during the divisional playoffs were removed.
The season became the first time that playoff games were played in prime time. The format continued until the expansion and reorganization into eight divisions.
In this current format, as explained above , the 4 division winners and 2 wild cards are seeded 1—6, with the top 2 seeds receiving byes, and the highest seed in each round guaranteed to play the lowest seed.
Also, seeds determine the home-field advantage. There are some limitations that exist in the current team playoff system.
Since being a division winner is a guaranteed playoff berth, there have been many cases in which a team that wins a "weak" division either barely has a winning record or has a.
At the same time, since a division winner is seeded higher than the wild cards, non-division winners may end up playing a road game during Wild Card Weekend against a team with an inferior record, or may end up outright missing the playoffs.
And going on the road during the first postseason round does not guarantee success: This issue has become more prevalent since the aforementioned realignment.
There are three notable examples in which a division winner with a. As a result of this seeding issue, frequent calls have been made to modify the playoff format even further.
One proposal has been to expand the playoffs to 14 teams. Proponents of expansion note the increased revenue that could be gained from an additional two playoff games.
They also note that the team playoff system was implemented when the league only had 28 teams and six divisions of 4 to 5 teams each.
The opposition to such a move notes that an expansion of the playoffs would "water down" the field by giving access to lower-caliber teams.
Opponents to expansion further point to the NBA playoffs and the NHL playoffs where more than half of the teams qualify for the postseason, and there is often a decreased emphasis on regular season performance as a result.
After the playoffs saw two wild-card teams with better records Jacksonville Jaguars and eventual Super Bowl XLII champions New York Giants go on the road to defeat division winners Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers , respectively during wild-card weekend, the NFL explored another proposal to change the playoffs so that the team with the better record would host the game, even if that meant a division winner went on the road.
The NFL's Competition Committee withdrew the request later that offseason,  with Atlanta Falcons president Rich McKay mentioning that they wanted the idea to simply get a discussion going.
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was a strong opponent of the rule change, believing that "if you win a division, it's good for your fans to know you will have a home game.
Just before the —11 Seahawks-Saints playoff game, McKay wanted to revisit the previous proposal to reseed teams during wild-card weekend.
In October , NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced plans to revisit the idea to expand the playoffs to 14 teams, with the increased revenue gained from the two additional postseason games being used to offset plans to shorten the preseason.
The team playoff proposal remained tabled until December , when no team in the NFC South could finish better than.
One proposed club system includes giving first-round byes for the teams with the best record in each conference, two division champions in each conference receiving home games, and the remaining eight teams would be seeded by win-loss record.
It is likely that movement won't be made on expanding either the playoffs or the regular season until at least , when the current collective bargaining agreement expires.
