Las Vegas Bookies Are Scared To Death That The Detroit Lions Will Win The Super Bowl

Matthew Stafford

Las Vegas sports books will lose a ton of money if the Detroit Lions win the Super Bowl.

“It wouldn’t be pretty,” MGM Mirage sportsbook manager Jeff Stoneback told today. “That is our largest loser.”

The Lions were 75-1 underdogs to win it all around of the time of last year’s Super Bowl. Even though their odds shrunk to around 30-1 before the season, Vegas is still on the hook for a number of long-odds bets.

“I’m sure there are people out there who have $30,000 and $40,000 tickets if not $50,000 tickets,” Stoneback told Covers.

Detroit’s odds currently sit a 6-1 after their 4-0 start.

They’ve also beat the spread in 11 of their past 12 games.
