The San Francisco 49ers were one of the top teams predicted to win Super Bowl 47 back in August, but right now Las Vegas sportsbooks are hoping that doesn't happen.
According to a Yahoo! report on Feb, 1, the 49ers are getting a lot of the action so far. Obviously the public believes in San Francisco and they are putting their money where their mouth is.
The betting public likes the 49ers -3.5 and over 47.5 total points, so Vegas sportsbooks are hoping for a Baltimore win and a 23-20 final!
MGM Resorts operates 10 sportsbooks on the Las Vegas Strip, and they are reporting the millions of dollars wagered so far has 49er gold written all over it.
"Our worst case scenario is going to be a Niners win and the over, so we will probably be rooting for any scenario except for that," Jay Rood, vice president of the race and sports book at MGM Resorts, told Reuters in a telephone interview.
"A Niners win by a field goal, and for the game to stay under, would probably be the dream for all the bookmakers."
In case you are wondering how big sports gaming is, there may be over $500 million big ones wagered on this game.
