Super Bowl betting action
• As of early Thursday afternoon at MGM sportsbooks in Nevada, approximately twice as much money had been bet on the Chiefs as had been bet on 49ers. However, Jeff Stoneback, director of race and sports for MGM in Nevada, estimated that 5% of the total money that will be bet on the Super Bowl had come in at this point.
The early action on the Super Bowl total has been lopsided at most sportsbooks, growing from a consensus opener of 51.5 up to 54.5 at many books. At MGM, Stoneback said there was 12 times as much money on the over as there was on the under.
• Sportsbook PointsBet had 306 different Super Bowl betting markets up Thursday. The most popular? The coin flip “by a good margin.”
Bettors are divided on the coin toss, with 52% of the bets on heads, although the bigger money is on tails. Nearly 70% of the money that had been bet at PointsBet was on tails.
• The vast majority of the money on the total continues to come in on the over. At DraftKings Sportsbook, 90% of the bets and 96% of the money so far has been on the over, which was at 54 on Wednesday morning. DraftKings also took a $50,000 wager on the 49ers moneyline at +108 odds in West Virginia.
• The largest Super Bowl bet so far comes in at DraftKings Sportsbook, as one bettor puts $684,000 on the 49ers +2 (-114). The bettor bought half a point.
• The sportsbook at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races in West Virginia took a $187,000 money-line bet on the 49ers at +107 odds.
• An MGM book in Vegas took another six-figure wager, this time $150,000 on the Chiefs moneyline (-125) to win $120,000.
• In 24 hours after posting a line and total on the Super Bowl, the sportsbook at SouthPoint in Las Vegas had taken 75 bets on the over and 1 on the under, per sportsbook director Chris Andrews.
• One bettor wagered $100,000 on the 49ers moneyline at EVEN at a William Hill US sportsbook.
• One bettor wagered $55,000 on Chiefs -1 at an MGM book
• The SuperBook at the Westgate Las Vegas took the largest reported bet on the game Sunday night: a $110,000 wager on the game going over 52.5 points.
