There are also two 9 foot by 16 foot big screen televisions. More
Bellagio: The Bellagio race and sports book is one of the most luxurious places in the world to make bets and follow the action. Nestled in a corner of the upscale hotel-casino, the sports book is open and inviting, yet more intimate than some of the larger sports books found elsewhere in Vegas. From deep, plush leather commander's chairs to impeccable service, an understated but readily evident elegance is the theme here. Always catering to high rolling sports fans, the Bellagio has some of the highest betting limits in town. There are 51 TVs plus 99 individual desks. More
Caesars Palace: Pleasantly dark and atmospheric, the Caesars race and sports book is a quintessential Las Vegas "mega-book." Within the cavernous and exciting venue there are plenty of seats with individual TV monitors for horseplayers, and race and sports fans alike can follow the action on several monstrous TV screens and an ample number of smaller monitors. There are six 12 x 15-foot screens, 12 50-inch plasmas and a 20 by 50-foot LED board. There are 140 sports seats with a 12-inch flat screen at every table. Plus, when hunger hits, Bobby Flay's excellent Mesa Grill is only steps away. More

TOP SPORTS BARS FOR WATCHING MARCH MAYHEM
Looking for a place to cheer on your favorite team in Vegas? Of course, you’ll want to choose a bar that offers tasty snacks, multiple beers on tap, numerous flat-screen TVs and a rowdy crowd. Don’t worry, there are plenty of spots that fit the bill. If you’re a sports fan, here are some of the hottest places to eat, drink and watch the day’s big games in Sin City.
Tap at MGM Grand
This 220-seat restaurant and sports bar features a wide selection of draught and bottled beers along with 60 flat-screen HD televisions. The food is also a winner at Tap thanks to items like the sloppy joes, cheese steak sliders and sourdough pretzels. And there’s an extra incentive to go: you’ll be surrounded by sports memorabilia from some of the biggest sporting events ever held in Las Vegas.
Lagasse’s Stadium in The Palazzo
You’ll be in expert hands here because celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse is an avid sports fan himself. A combination of a sports book, restaurant and lounge, Lagasse’s Stadium has more than 100 HD screens and a menu of tailgating favorites with a New Orleans twist – like the shrimp po’ boy or the pork nachos. If you want to splurge, splash out on one of the sky or luxury boxes, which feature comfy seating that will rival the feeling of being on your sofa at home…except that when halftime hits, you can play a game of billiards or step out onto the patio and take in a view of the Las Vegas Strip.
Blondies Sports Bar & Grill in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino
If you’re seeking a tame and not-too-noisy sports joint, this is not the place. Blondies is best known for its over-the-top atmosphere where you’ll be served by a sexy bar staff clad in cheerleader uniforms. There are more than 40 flat-screen TVs, ranging in size from 12 to 32 feet and broadcasting the day’s major NCAA, NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB and NASCAR events. With beer pong tables always ready and waiting, it’s no wonder why Blondies tends to be a hot hangout with college kids (and kids-at-heart).
Yard House at The LINQ Promenade
Located next to the eye-catching High Roller observation wheel, which is dazzling both by day and when lit at night, this 50th location of the popular Southern California-based chain. Encompassing two stories and more than 18,000 square feet, this is officially the largest Yard House in existence. Before you sit down in the bar, massive dining room or on the patio to watch sports (note: a fleet of flat-screen TVs is located throughout this place), stop and get a good look at the glass-enclosed keg room, which houses thousands of gallons of beer. In fact, if you’re someone who likes making choices, you’ll have more than you can imagine at Yard House. You can pick from a selection of 160 taps of imported, craft and specialty ales and lagers and 130 menu items ranging from sliders and lettuce wraps to flatbreads and street tacos.
Topgolf by MGM Grand
There's a lot of bball games going down during the madness, it's almost impossible to catch them all. Well, times have changed people! We're not living in the dark ages anymore, now bars are fully loaded with tons of TVs. And Top Golf gives you multiple screens that are "uuge!" But what do you do with all those commercial breaks, time outs and player injuries (cross your fingers that it doesn't happen for the sake of your bracket)? That's easy, tee up and start hitting balls. Don't worry, you won't miss any screen time, because they have huge TVs at the end of the green. If there was a fun-o-meter, this place would be off the charts.
Beerhaus at The Park
Brews, on brews, on brews. That's what you'll get at Beerhaus at The Park. Not only do they have a bazillion TVs for you to catch all the games, but they have competitive games like Jenga and ping pong to keep the competition alive off the court as well. This is a great spot to grab a beer with your buddies, watch a few games and compete for the NCAA trophy. After all, you do feel like you're part of the team after following them through the tournament. Now, the only thing you have to worry about is your bracket. We didn't want to bring it up, but we know how it went last year, it was quite unfortunate.
