Looking for a Lock for Super Bowl XLVIII? Las Vegas Sportsbook Action

December 2, 2013

Nobody can predict the future but if you’re looking for a lock for the 2014 Super Bowl your best bet is probably to follow the Las Vegas Sportsbooks. Nevada Gaming Control began to track Super Bowl betting in 1991 and since then the state’s sports books are up $119.4 million on the NFL championship game, losing money only twice in the last 22 Super Bowls. Those are odds you should take every time.

During the previous 22 Super Bowls more than $1.6 billion dollars has been wagered on the Super Bowl in Nevada and the biggest win for the sportsbooks came in Super Bowl XXXIX when Nevada sportsbooks took $15.4 million in a game when the Eagles covered the spread, losing 24-21 to the Patriots.

Interestingly the Pats were also involved in the Vegas sportsbooks largest Super Bowl loss when the New York Giants upset New England in Super Bowl XLII, costing Las Vegas books $2.5 million. The only other loss for Vegas sportsbooks came in Super Bowl XXIX when the 49ers covered the spread as big favorites versus the Chargers. That game cost Vegas sportsbooks $396,674.

To date the largest amount was bet on Super Bowl XL – a game between the Steelers and the Seattle Seahawks. That year the NFL’s biggest game generated $94.5 million – professional football’s largest handle.

For the bettor that wants to play the odds and increase his chance of a payday it’s wise to pay attention to history. This includes the results of previous Super Bowl games but it also includes the action of Las Vegas’ sportsbooks – a team which has earned a 20-2 record when betting the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl XLVIII will be held on Sunday, February 2, 2014 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ and while we don’t yet know who will be playing this year on the NFL’s greatest stage, it’s clear that following the lead of Vegas sportsbooks will put the odds in your favor for placing a winning bet.
