Super Bowl LI Vegas Recap

For Nevada’s largest sports book operator, William Hill, it was a fitting end to a terrible pro football season. The Patriots, trailing 28-9, were available at 16/1 (+1600) on the LIVE InPlay Money Line and their comeback was very profitable for the majority of bettors. The favorite covered. The total went over. All the popular props cashed.

Super Bowl 51 was another record breaker for William Hill’s Nevada Sports Books. The game’s handle (total dollars wagered) surpassed the previous best (Super Bowl 50).
