Just wondering ?
I just cashed this in yesterday morning. The cashier said I was one of only 3 people that made this bet there, one other persons ticket was all torn up and had to be taped back together, I almost did the same with mine at halftime.
I bet the people who empty the waste bins at the sportsbooks checked for Patriot tix after the game..and maybe got lucky if someone left the property and could not get back?
As they say at the track,"Hold all tickets"..
6 to 1, 7 to 1. Hit this year but really not good odds. 1 out of 51 in Super Bowls. Books usually clean up here. And much less than 1 out of 7 games goes to OT. In last 30 years about 1 out of 20 go in the NFL.
Depends on when and where you bet it. I actually wagered it (unfortunately, it was my smallest bet), but only got +550. Its a popular bet amongst the public
Wife bet it and also got +600 at the South Point
The Cal had 8-1
Thanks for the answers. everybody !
I bet $$ on Falcons leading halftime and went to OT...was paying +3000....wish I had bet more than $2
Was double figures here in the U.K. As high as 12/1 in a place.
I had it too, also at +600 (Cosmo). Unfortunately I only had $15 on it, though it helped make my first Super Bowl in Vegas a profitable one.
Luckily I didn't get my bet in earlier against OT. Game day it was -$1000 so decided not to bet it. Probably would have put up the $750 to win $100. Dodged a bullet there!!!
I got 9-1 offshore.
I want to meet the folks who thought it was easy money and forked over $1000 to win $100. Those bets always make me nervous.
It was painful losing the Falcons at the last second but personally if I was someone who bet $1K to win few bucks on NO overtime, my night would be ruined on the spot.
1-10 odds were actually a great bet considering 1or 2 out of 50 hit OT...just one of those deals considering 10/1 favorites lose all the time in the sportsworld....it's a bet you make knowing lightning can strike
This was the first Super Bowl ever to go into OT. Still, laying 10-1 against the propsition just seems wrong to the extreme.
I heard there were a good many people (obviously still a small minority) who took 15-1 odds that Patriots would comeback and win
I disagree. Even though I bet and won the OT prop this year, I laid quite a few large numbers to win small payouts (and do every year). Most years, that works out well for me
If you risked $100 to win $10 every Super Bowl you would still be up $400..........
Yes, this is true for both the last two responses. I still wouldn't lay such long odds in cases where the spread was a field goal or less. Guaranteed that when one team is favored by a touchdown or more the OT bet is likely more -2000 than -1000.
Same thing for the bet on whether there will be a safety. If I were to wager on that one, better to wager on the "yes" side
With the abundance of safeties scored over the last few SB games, you are getting the best odds ever offered on "no safety". If you have to lay 8 to 1 on a bet that should be 16 to 1, you are way ahead of the game.
