A record $119.4 million was bet at Nevada casinos on this year’s Super Bowl.

With the Denver Broncos entering as a 2.5 point favorite, bettors turned out to show support for Peyton Manning. The result was a record $19.7 million profit for the sportsbooks reports the Associated Press. That’s more than the last three Super Bowls combined.

Seattle thumped Denver 43-8 which was a total of 51 points. The over/under at most places was 47.5 points meaning Vegas was helped there as well.

The moral of this story – if it was not clear already – do not bet against Vegas.
