Sammy Draper Stops By, Nebraska Guy With ‘Kumfish’ Plate Is Missing & Levin Vs. McCarron

Even though the Patriots were an easy pick at -1, -1.5, -2.5…Vegas books still won

From the Las Vegas Sun:

Nevada sports books banked an eight-figure win on Super Bowl 53 but fell short of setting a record for overall betting handle on the New England Patriots’ 13-3 win against the Los Angeles Rams.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board announced Monday afternoon that the state’s 200 sports books netted a win of $10,780,319 off of $145,780,319 in total wagers. It’s the third time in the last four years that the house has made at least $10 million in the most popularly-bet game of the year.

But predictions that sports betting’s increase in visibility nationwide would boost local volume missed the mark. The $145.78 million wagered was nearly $13 million below the amount of money wagered on Super Bowl 52.

That’s right, gambling was down overall for Vegas books. Pray that Vegas eventually feels the pinch and rids the world of those resort fees and parking fees that have helped keep the lights on and Wall Street happy.

Numbers from :

First rumblings Wynn/Encore eyeing increase in resort fee from $39 to $45, keeping pace with Venetian/Palazzo. Awaiting cues from Aria/Bellagio, apparently.
