NFL regular season begins early at Plaza

May 3, 2005 3:21 AM

Only in Las Vegas can NFL lines for the season find a place in the middle of Kentucky Derby day.

"What better time to release them!" quipped Mike Colbert, sports book director at the Plaza. "We will have a big crowd in here for the Derby, so it’s a great opportunity to have our 17 weeks of NFL game lines available early."

The game lines will kick off a two-part NFL package at the Plaza, with season wins projections for every pro football team available two days later on Monday, May 9.

"We wanted to be the first one in Las Vegas to have the NFL lines and win totals out there for the customers," Colbert said. "We’re just keeping our promise to the bettors that the Plaza wants to set the tone in providing a first look at the NFL."

GamingToday has run Week 1 lines from both the Plaza and Las Vegas Hilton in past editions.
