According to Pro Football Talk, Las Vegas has already taken a 1 million dollar bet on the Patriots. That is the first seven figure bet this year. Last year there was not any seven figure bets for the Super Bowl. Why is everyone favoring the Patriots.
According to Micah Roberts of “The Linemakers” of Sporting News, MGM took a “seven-figure wager” on the Patriots over the Seahawks in Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Jay Rood, the vice president of race and sports at MGM, told PFT the bet was a wager on New England at pick ‘em.
MGM did not receive a single million-dollar bet on last year’s Super Bowl, Rood said.
