Las Vegas Struggles Lead To Massive Loss
Remember, this post is for informational and entertainment purposes only. We advise not to blindly follow huge bets published that have large dollar amounts, as sportsbooks sometimes take the largest bets from non-professional bettors.
At Caesars Sportsbook, a fan wagered $100,000 on the Las Vegas Raiders moneyline in their Monday Night Football matchup against the Detroit Lions. The Raiders would go on to lose this matchup 26-14 and lead to major losses for this unlucky bettor.
MNF Leads To Public Losses
The Caesars bettor isn’t the only fan to lose out Monday night. At BetMGM, the most wagered prop ticket was on Raiders WR Davanta Adams to score the first TD. Adams finished the game with just a single catch for 11 yards and no touchdowns.
Additionally, the public took the Under on Detroit Lions QB Jared Goff’s total passing yards at 265.4. Goff finished with 272 passing yards.
