    And with that, we now have our answer starting in Week 3 😁😁😁😁

    Thanks Dave for clearing things up about all the books that are and are not a "View From Vegas".

    Thanks Dave. That makes sense to only use Vegas books since it’s “ViewFromVegas.” Your site, your contest, your rules. GL this season to you and everyone else.

    Happy to see the B1G is back as well!

    Looks like pretty good consensus...as for Atlantis Reno and Peppermill, yes, the previous reason to not include that was this is ViewFromVegas so the underlying theme of these contests has always been for people from other states to be betting as if they're in Vegas...it seems a little antiquated now with the explosion of legalized sports betting (which I've always been for), but again that was the reasoning. For that reason, I'd keep DraftKIngs and FanDuel off as well until they enter the market.

    In a bit of house-cleaning, defintely delete CG Technology as they're out of business after being acquired by William Hill. Note: to further complicate matters, William Hill is also the offiical odds provider for Eldorado Casinos which is buying Caesars Palace (I'm sure most of you have noticed on ESPN that they used to use Caesars odds and have recently started calling them "Caesars Odds by William Hill." Eventually, Caesars and William Hill will probably be the same odds or Caesars might disappear as an odds provider...but before the merger is complete, they are posting separate odds and should both be available for our purposes here.

    Coast Casinos isn't connected correctly on the Vegas Insider feed, so I'm also making executive decision to delete them (note: you'll see they have Saints -3.5 -40 vs. Raiders for the Week 2 Monday night game, which should be allowed anyway as it exceeded -110 and is a stale line anyway, so I saw we do away with Coast anyway).

    As for BetMGM, that's connected with long-time stalwart MGM/Mirage, so I think it's valid.

    It's my site, so I'll break gcotton's and list my choice for books to include moving forward...this gives everyone 10 choices, at least until Caesar/Eldorado/WillHill combines...though I'm sure more are on the way:

    WESTGATE
    BETMGM
    CIRCA
    WILLIAM HILL
    STATIONS
    GOLDEN NUGGET
    TREASURE ISLAND
    SOUTH POINT
    CAESARS
    WYNN
