Vegas misses on Super Bowl outcome, wins on prop bets

The New England Patriots’ comeback win and cover in Super Bowl LI kept Las Vegas bookmakers from celebrating much, but they made up for it on the prop bets.

Las Vegas bookmaker Bovada.lv says it took a hit with the New England Patriots’ big comeback that had the book losing on the spread, total and live betting, but “we did very well in props which account for almost 40 percent of all wagers,” according to Bovada.lv Sports Book Manager Kevin Bradley.

The Patriots, a 3½-point favorite, were down by 25 points in the third quarter before mounting the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history, winning by six points with a touchdown in overtime.  

“It was no secret the book needed the Falcons pretty big last night and when they were up 21-0 we were already celebrating,” Bradley said. “Our main problem was we took a ton on Pats action in our Live Betting as well and we all know how the story ended.”

So how did the prop bets and game bets go in the Patriots’ 34-28 win over the Atlanta Falcons? We have the results from Bovada, with the winner in bold.
