Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- If you haven't hit the sports books yet to place your bets for this Super Bowl Sunday, you'd better get a move on.

Las Vegas sports book directors are expecting a mad rush later Friday when tourists start getting into town.

Super Bowl weekend is always big in Las Vegas but this year, it is expected to be the biggest yet.

Some major bets have already been place but the big money will likely come pouring in this weekend before the game.

According to the the LVH Sports Book, they have already received wages in the five figures.

Of course, prop bets are also a big Super Bowl tradition. At LVH, there are more than 350 prop bets to place money on.

The vice president of the race and sports operation has this advice: Bet on what you want but ultimately, make sure you have a good time.

An estimated 292,000 people are expected to visit Las Vegas this weekend in connection to the Super Bowl. That is almost as many people who come to town for New Year's Eve.
