The biggest bet on Super Bowl LV so far is the underage Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
A bookmaker in Nevada on Thursday night placed a $ 2.3 million bet on BookBook +3.5 (-115) with sportsbook BetzMM. If Tampa Bay covered the spread against Kansas City chiefs, the wager would receive a net profit of $ 2 million.
According to company spokeswoman Alyssa Richardson, the bet was placed on BetamMMM’s mobile app and is the largest Super Bowl bet any American Sportsbook reported on Friday morning.
The big bet on the Buccaneers was a welcome sight for BetjMM, with the bulk of the initial action taking place on the favorite heads.
“It was a condition we were very happy to receive,” ESPN told Jason Scott, vice president of business for BetzMM. “We previously wrote several other six-figure bets, all over Kansas City, and the public is definitely behind Andy Reid and Patrick Mahome.”
The majors remained a 3-point consensus and were still attracting 74% when William Hill came to a point-spread bet in the Kaiser Sportsbook. The two biggest bowl bets William Hill made as of Friday were both major: $ 120,000 on Kansas City-3 (-120), and a $ 95,000 money-line bet on the Chiefs in -165 odds, which Will pay a total of $ 57,575.
FanDuel and DraftKings also reported action on the chiefs, with more than 75% of the previous winner’s money returned in each sportsbook.
Hundreds of millions of dollars are expected to be placed with the US Sportsbook on the Super Bowl, including a handful of seven-handed sheep that regularly feature in big games each year. Million-dollar bets are usually placed by casino VIPs, high rollers who are given betting limits. Sportsbooks do not regularly offer seven-figure bets to professional bookies or the average street customer.
