Super Bowl generates mixed results for Nevada odds makers (The Associated Press)

Las Vegas oddsmakers thought they might be headed for a big payday, but the New England Patriots – thanks to a successful two-point conversion that led to the first-ever Super Bowl overtime – left them with mixed results instead. The unaudited tallies released Monday by the Nevada Gaming Control Board showed sports books made a profit of more than $10.9 million on the action, about $2.4 million less than in 2016 and a far cry from the $19.6 the casinos cleared in 2014. Caesars Palace sportsbook director Frank Kunovic said the hotel-casino raked in a decent amount of money from bettors, but would have had a much better day if the Patriots missed the two-point conversion that tied the game.
