It didn’t take long for Las Vegas sports books to make the Green Bay Packers their favorites for next month’s Super Bowl.
The “Review-Journal” says just after the playoffs Sunday night, sports book operators made Green Bay two-and-a-half point favorites over the Pittsburgh Steelers for the February 6th game. Bettors in Nevada wagered nearly 83-million dollars last year, when New Orleans defeated Indianapolis. The record was set in 2006, when Pittsburgh defeated Seattle and more than 94-million dollars was wagered in the state’s sports books.
To learn more, KXNT Morning News spoke to Jay Kornigay from the Las Vegas Hilton Sports Book to find out where the Super Bowl betting lines are.
