Nevada sportsbooks process record $158.6m in bets on Super Bowl LII

Lady Luck was most certainly not the side of Las Vegas sports books during the Super Bowl as some reported six- and seven-figure losses in part due to a seemingly deep-pocketed mystery bettor and the many records set during the game, which allowed gamblers to cash in on proposition bets.

The Review-Journal had reported that one bettor placed a $3 million wager on the Eagles on January 24.

Since the Nevada Gaming Control Board began tracking betting activity on the Super Bowl in 1991, bookmakers have made a profit on 26 out of 28 games, with the 1995 and 2008 games serving as the only loss-making events. So, they like to bet the yeses more than the nos. And if it is a victor, it's like (a) 1 percent (hold).

Sports betting could be expanded to other USA states ahead of next year's Super Bowl, should New Jersey prove successful in its quest to overturn the federal 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA). "We enjoyed having them in our establishment".

Unfortunately, the Eagles lost, but Markert has been hanging on to the bottle with the hopes of one day popping it to a Super Bowl victory.


"Once in a while (we lose)", Wynn Las Vegas sports book director Johnny Avello told the Review-Journal. The last couple have been tough.

In a huge play for prop bettors, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles caught a TD pass on fourth-and-1 in the final minute of the first half.

The Dolphins' other two AFC East foes - the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets - are getting 100-1 and 150-1 odds, respectively.

Kornegay said every single one of the players who scored a touchdown had a proposition bet on him.
