Football is right around the corner, and players and bookies alike are prepped for the games to begin.

"I’ve had enough of baseball, golf and the other sports," said Jeremy Valle, a regular at the Gold Coast sports book. "Football is what I’ve been waiting for. It’s what we come into the book for."

Bookies are also primed for another big football season.

"We’re all excited, we’ve got everything in place and we’re ready for action," said Eric St. Clair, race and sports supervisor at the Rampart Casino in Summerlin. "You can feel the excitement throughout the casino, and not only in the sports book."

GamingToday begins its football coverage this week with part one of its College Preview, with part two slated for next week. The NFL preview follows in two weeks, along with regular analysis, stats, picks and much, much more.
