NFL-Super Bowl sets gambling record at Nevada sports books (Reuters)

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots were not the only ones breaking records at Sunday’s Super Bowl as gamblers in Nevada set a new mark for betting on the NFL’s championship game. The $138.5 million that was bet in Nevada’s 196 sports books easily surpassed the previous high of $132.5 million for last year’s Super Bowl, according to unaudited figures released by the Nevada Gaming Control Board on Monday.
