Ever since sports betting has become legal, there has been billions of dollars wagered on bets throughout all of the sports. It seems each year sports betting becomes more and more relevant, due to new states jumping on board legalizing sports betting. There was over $50 billion wagered on sports in 2021. The NFL has counted for almost half of the wagers placed in sports betting in the US. It is safe to say the NFL is the king of sports betting in the United States. In this article, we are going to talk about some of the biggest wins in NFL betting history.
- 3.46 million dollars wagered on the Buccaneers winning the Super Bowl
As we know, the biggest game often means the biggest bets are placed. A guy by the name of Mattress Mack placed a bet on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. This bet was placed on DraftKings sportsbook. As we all know, this game ended in a blowout with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers becoming Super Bowl Champions, and this bet winning. This is an insane amount of money, and the biggest win in NFL betting history.
- 2.3 million dollars wagered on the Buccaneers winning the Super Bowl.
In the same game above, an anonymous gambler wagered 2.3 million dollars on the Buccaneers winning the Super Bowl. This time the bet was placed on BetMGM. This bettor was able to walk away with over 2 million dollars in winnings after the Bucs beat Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. This is the 2nd biggest win in NFL betting history.
Ironically, Mattress Mack also wagered the largest amount in NFL history in last year’s Super Bowl between the Bengals and Rams. Unfortunately, he wagered $5 million for the Bengals to win and we all know the outcome of that game. Aaron Donald cost that guy a lot more money. I expect another enormous wager for this year’s Super Bowl and we can likely look at Mattress Mack who bet on the Astros to win the World Series to likely come through with another big bet. Whether he wins again and how much he wagers, we will have to wait and see. When you are doing your sports betting, always make sure you are looking to get the best NFL odds. This will result in a higher payout and give you an edge when placing your bets.
