Total wagering on this year’s Super Bowl at Nevada’s 183 sports books totaled just under $87.5 million, according to the Gaming Control Board.  That’s up from the $82.7 million bet on last year’s game between the Colts and Saints, but still short of the record $94.5 million wagered on the 2006 Super Bowl between the Steelers and Seahawks. 

Some sports book directors described the victory by the favored Packers and the final score going over the posed total of 45 1/2 as a “worst-case scenario,” but the numbers show the casinos actually came out in the black, albeit slightly.   Total net winnings on the game statewide were just over $724,000, for a winning percentage of .83.

  1. I like to gamble. My wife just doesn’t respect it, though. LOL
