LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — It's tough to beat an oddsmaker, as Nevada sportsbooks report another Super Bowl profit from this year's game.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board released figures on Tuesday that showed $136.1 million was wagered in the state on Super Bowl LV that featured the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

And the sportsbooks ended up holding 9.2% of the money wagered for a "win" of $12,574,125.

The Buccs and quarterback Tom Brady were able to slow down the favored Chiefs in a 31-9 Sunday victory.

Nevada is home to 184 sportsbooks, according to the gaming control board, and several were still able to have guests enjoy the game under COVID-19 restrictions.

Board chairman Brin Gibson says the betting numbers remain unaudited but look to be the fourth-best win for the books in the last 10 years.
