The flood of money that rolls in on for the Super Bowl is so substantial, there will either be a prop on how many seven-figure bets were taken, and/or an over/under market on the total handle.
Championship Sunday’s just getting wrapped up, and it’s already coming in for Super Bowl LVI between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals.
Caesars Sportsbook reported a $180,000 bet on Rams moneyline (-180), which pays out an even $100K of profit. That came in almost immediately.
On Monday morning, Caesars reported an even bigger wager on the Rams with a bettor getting down $522,500 on the Rams -4 at -110 odds.
Los Angeles took care of business over division rival San Francisco in Sunday’s late window, 20-17.
According to our public data trackers, the Rams were getting 58% of the moneyline bets and 53% of the ticket count against the spread against the 49ers.
The Bengals have been the gold mine for bettors, ripping off seven straight covers dating back to the regular season.
Cincinnati’s come a long way. The franchise owned the longest preseason odds to win the AFC North and at one point, peaked at 200-1 to win the whole thing.
The Rams failed to cover Sunday as 3.5-point favorites, moving the franchise to just 10-10 against the spread in 2021-22.
Head coach Sean McVay’s best season for bettors came back in 2019, when he and the Rams went 10-5-1 ATS.
