I pulled up the flight path for two Southwest flights from MCO to LAS on 5/15 and both took this route on the south side of the Grand Canyon so a seat on the right side (when facing forward) would be best.

Even other routes seem to be placed into the airline superhighway that would see Grand Canyon on the right hand side for several of my trips to Las Vegas as well from further north.

 

No guarantee, I'm not sure what other factors, weather, etc. could influence the route but it seems that a frequent route is to the south of the canyon.
