    MGM Resorts reported taking a $2 million money-line bet late Thursday on the Rams, who face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday in Atlanta. Bookmaker William Hill on Friday said it took a $1.5 million money-line bet on the Rams, and hours later the sportsbook at South Point Casino in Las Vegas reported taking a $300,000 money-line bet on Los Angeles. The bets were made at +120 odds and first reported by the Vegas Stats & Information Network and RotoGrinders.

    So Edelman was +2600.
    Its been a long time since I've been to Vegas but I think that means $100 would have won you $2600?
    Is that correct?

    That's right, and the books usually try to make around a 15% to 30% house edge on prop bets. So the books calculated the real odds to be around 30 or 35 to 1.

    Winning prop bets always look so good after the game is over. But who would have thought in advance that a white Jewish wide receiver could have ever won a Super Bowl MVP. B)
