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

(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.
