UNLV vs. Duke
T-Mobile Arena
Dec. 10 at 2:15 p.m.
Duke’s men’s basketball team lead by legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski is set to take on the Runnin’ Rebels of UNLV. The bout will take place at the recently unveiled T-Mobile Arena. Back in 2011, the Rebels pulled off a shocking upset against then No. 1 ranked North Carolina Tar Heels in the championship game of the Las Vegas Invitational. So there is a precedent for big wins against quality Atlantic Coast Conference teams. We smell another upset!

The Colosseum
The seminal British R&B star, Van Morrison, is slated to perform two nights at The Colosseum inside Caesars Palace this January. The iconic Las Vegas Strip venue is no stranger to big name acts, but this has to be one of the biggest in recent memory.
