New Virgin Hotels sportsbook opening right before the Super Bowl
Updated February 10, 2023
The wait is over, as the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs are ready to battle with the Lombardi Trophy on the line. Sin City will be packed all week with people ready to get their bets in. In some additional good news, the new Virgin Hotels sportsbook opening right before the Super Bowl has plenty of people in town talking.
Indeed, Virgin Hotels officially opens its doors to its new sportsbook on Thursday, and people won’t waste a second in checking out the new location. Virgin Hotels as a whole are a primetime attraction all over the world. This news of the addition for Las Vegas has got countless folks, including die-hard sports fans, incredibly interested.
“After a long regulatory process, we are thrilled to finally open the doors of the Betfred at Mohegan Sun Sportsbook,” Chairman of the new sportsbook Fred Done said in a release. “This facility means so much to the entire Betfred team and me as we enter into the Nevada market, the sports betting capital of the world, ready to wow sports fans with a leading, modern facility.”
People will check the NFL betting odds leading to Sunday’s matchup between Kansas City and Philadelphia. Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts will be ready to put on a show, and all Las Vegas sportsbooks will undoubtedly be packed to the brim. Luckily, people at the Virgins Hotel won’t have to travel far to watch the action and get some bets.
Historic wagers are expected for the 2023 Super Bowl
This upcoming showdown is even more exciting because historic wagers are expected for the 2023 Super Bowl. According to a report, more than 50 million Americans alone are projected to make some sort of a wager this weekend through the best NFL betting sites and in person, while an insane $16 billion worth of bets could be coming in as well. Those figures are truly out of this world, but no one can question that the Super Bowl is the best time of year to put money on the table.
When it comes to the Super Bowl betting odds for this upcoming matchup, the Eagles are slight favorites, but the Kansas City Chiefs are always a threat to create magic whenever they’re on the field, as Mahomes is without a doubt one of the best quarterbacks in the game. It is widely expected that Mahomes will be named AP MVP during the end-of-the-season awards show on Thursday night.
Despite playing with a sprained ankle, Mahomes was sharp in the Divisional Round and then in the AFC Championship Game win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Mahomes knows that the pressure is on him to deliver in this one and not let KC fans down. On the other side of the ball, plenty of prop bets will surely be placed on Hurts as well, as people will be eyeing the odds for his passing and rushing yards.
Hurts would certainly be the MVP this season if it weren’t for Mahomes. What he’s been able to do with the Eagles, highlighted by winning the NFC title game against the 49ers last week, has been sensational. Hurts would love nothing more than to keep his positive story going. Will it end with helping the Eagles bring home their second Super Bowl title? We’ll find out soon.
Las Vegas continues to showcase new locations this year
In all, Las Vegas continues to showcase new locations this year, and it’s only adding to the allure from a tourism standpoint. We don’t have to tell you that Las Vegas will always be a top-tier destination for people to visit, but everyone knows that football season is always a time of the year when people love packing their bags and making their way over.
In the last six months alone, we have seen more sportsbooks, bars, restaurants, and more open up in the city, which speaks to the overall health of Vegas following the COVID pandemic. Plenty of hotels and restaurants were forced to close their doors, but now we are seeing some strong returns and new places arriving as well. The Virgin Hotels sportsbook is just the latest example of this, and so many people are grateful to see what’s happening.
With so many attractions in Las Vegas, it’s only pumping up the intrigue for what’s coming on Sunday night. The hype has been real all week in Arizona for the Eagles and the Chiefs. This could prove to be one of the highest-scoring games we’ve seen in quite some time. The betting will be through the roof, as millions and millions of fans will have a betting interest in the action. This will be a memorable showdown for sure.
