You may very well like the Patriots to win Super Bowl XLIX.
But you probably aren’t quite as confident as the bettor who placed an absolutely gigantic wager on New England at an MGM Resorts International sports book in Nevada.
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.
The Patriots are one-point favorites over Seattle at numerous Nevada sports books, including MGM’s properties, which include The Mirage and Bellagio.
