    Super Bowl Bets in Vegas May Exceed $100 Million for First Time

    http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601079&sid=aw2U7IACb0D4&refer=home
    The allure of a perfect season for the New England Patriots or a historic upset for the underdog New York Giants may boost Super Bowl wagers at Las Vegas sports books above $100 million for the first time.

    Last year's National Football League championship game between Indianapolis and Chicago resulted in $93.1 million in legal bets at Nevada's 176 sports books, down from the record $94.5 million wagered on the Super Bowl in 2006.

    The 18-0 Patriots are favored by 12 points for the Feb. 3 game in Glendale, Arizona. Most Las Vegas sports books opened the line at 13 1/2 points and then lowered it as the majority of the early betting was on the 13-6 Giants, who have won three straight playoff games as underdogs...

    I am
    considering putting some money down on the giants to win. A $100 bet would get $450 if the giants win($350 profit). It would really make the super bowl more interesting, although probably dissapointing.
    I really think the Giants have a good shot. I might just do $20.

    The coin put down in Vegas is just a drop in the bucket compared to the overall coinage bet on the SB.
