The Arizona Cardinals will take on the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night in the final game of Super Wild Card Weekend of the NFL playoffs. A large portion of the Red Sea has made their way to LA with hopes of watching the Cards return home with a victory.
However, fans still have plenty of options to take in the game if you didn’t make the trip. Retail sportsbooks, along with AZ betting apps, have been popping up in Arizona ever since the state launched legal sports betting in September 2021.
Now Arizonans have more places to watch the game and put some money down on their favorite team at the same time. PlayAZ has details on where you can check out the action and what Arizona bettors can expect.
BetMGM Sportsbook hosting Cards watch parties at Gila River locations
The Cardinals will play the NFL’s first-ever Monday night wild-card game when they face their NFC West foe Rams. And who better than the team’s sports betting partner to host a few Big Red viewing parties to support the team.
BetMGM and Gila River Hotels & Casinos are hosting watch parties at each of its three sportsbooks. Customers can get their hands on free Cardinals-branded facemasks and Kyler Murray-inspired headbands. There will also be signs and special rally towels.
Furthermore, fans will be able to take in the state-of-the-art sports bar atmosphere with food and drinks at the sportsbooks located inside Gila River’s Wild Horse Pass, Vee Quiva, and Lone Butte locations. Most important, they can watch the football action from start to finish with the Cardinals-Rams game playing on giant high-definition TV screens.
Of course, fans will also have access to the BetMGM Arizona betting app, just in case you’re not feeling the urge to get up out of your seat to wager.
FanDuel Sportsbook ready to support the Cardinals
There will be a parade of football fans at the Phoenix Suns’ arena. The FanDuel Sportsbook located inside the Footprint Center is another prime spot to watch Monday’s playoff game.
The 7,400-square-foot facility is a fan’s one-stop shop to enjoy an epic NFL playoff game while placing wagers on the action.
While there won’t be an official Cardinals “watch party,” it will still be an excellent location for sports bettors, who can also place wagers via the FanDuel Arizona online sportsbook.
Caesars Sportsbook taking bets in Downtown Phoenix
As a complement to the mobile Caesars Sportsbook AZ, Caesars’ retail operation at Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, is temporarily located at the stadium’s ticket window.
So there will be no official watch party for the game at the ballpark.
However, it will be open ahead of the game and provides a convenient spot in the Downtown Phoenix area for you to place a bet before heading out to watch the game.
Work is underway to transform the Game 7 Grill into the permanent Caesars retail sportsbook. The project is expected to be ready before the start of the baseball season.
SolSports sportsbook in Tucson joining the Red Sea as well
It isn’t just the Phoenix metro area showing support for the Cardinals. The SolSports sportsbook, located inside Casino Del Sol in Tucson, is also hosting a viewing party for Monday’s game.
Organizers say the sportsbook will be open for folks to place bets along with the regular array of food and drinks.
There will also be a special raffle for customers in attendance. The raffle will revolve around the ability to guess the score of the game.
