Super Bowl 50 handle sets new record at Las Vegas Sportsbooks

Super Bowl 50 set the all-time record for sportsbook handle in Nevada, according to figures released by the Nevada State Gaming Control Board.

$132.5 million was staked on the Super Bowl, which beats the previous record of $119.4 million on Super Bowl XVIII between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks.

While the outcome was not the home run Vegas hoped for given the surge of late Denver money - which caused the line to drop 1.5 points and money line to drop by as much as 30 cents at top sportsbooks - Vegas still made money; $13.3 million, to be exact.

The biggest profit was recorded in the 2014 Super Bowl when $19.6 million was won.

The betting public also made out like bandits with Von Miller cashing as the game's Most Valuable Player (MVP). The line lowered from +2500 to +1400 at some online sportsbooks, and a report by the Las Vegas Sun suggested as much as 10% of wagers were on Miller at some books on the Las Vegas strip.
