The high temperature in Las Vegas is expected to peak around 80 degrees on Wednesday, and you are unlikely to see anyone wearing Santa hats or reindeer-emblazoned sweaters on the Strip, but for certain folks, Wednesday might feel a little like winter in the desert.
After all, the NFL point spreads are back on the board, available to be bet.
