Nevada Sportsbooks Win Again on Super Bowl - 15 of 16 years

Las Vegas, Nevada (February 8, 2011) – RJ Bell of reports . . .

Despite widespread speculation that the Super Bowl was a tough one for the sportsbooks, the final numbers show yet another losing year for the players.

Nevada Totals:
$87.5 million wagered
$724,000 won by sportsbooks.

That makes 15 of 16 winning years for the sportsbooks! (the lone exception being Giants/Patriots in 2007).

RJ Bell of said: “Packers and Over was by far the worst possible result for the sportsbooks, and even so they ended up net winners. This is a great example of the steep uphill climb the average player faces trying to win.”

* The overall handle is up almost $5 million from last year.
* This is the smallest sportsbook win since 1998 (Packers vs. Broncos)
* Nevada sportsbooks have now won a net $115 million since 1991 (19 of 21 winning years)
* Nevada accounts for approximately 1% of the worldwide Super Bowl handle.
* Sportsbooks worldwide have won an estimated $11.5 Billion on the Super Bowl since 1991.

Super Bowl XLV action:
The public strongly played Packers and Over.
The sharps played Steelers and under.
