Sports Betting

story posted Monday, January 28th, 2019 02:03 pm GMT -6

Some interesting numbers about our big game last year:

  • $158,586,934 – total SBLII handle in Nevada
  • $1,170,432 – amount won by Nevada sports books on SBLII
  • $4.76 billion – amount the AGA estimates was bet on SBLII (legally and illegally)

With the legal landscape changing this year, things should be way crazier for Rams-Patriots. I love that the Westgate SuperBook has 442 different prop bets for SBLIII. I mean, how do you even come up with a spread for Phil Mickelson fourth-round bogeys at the Phoenix Open versus Josh Reynolds receptions?

h/t to Marc Meltzer (and good luck to my tech friends in Atlanta)

Full speed ahead, Mr. Boatswain, full speed ahead!
