A lot of money passes through the sports books on the day of the Super Bowl. That includes a few high rollers that are hoping to win big. Really big.

William Hill reports that four people have placed bets worth $1 million or more in their sports books for Super Bowl LII.

The highest was $1.6 million on the Eagles +4.5 point spread. Two other bettors placed $1 million on the Eagles +165 money line, and one bet $1 million on the Patriots -180 money line.

The Patriots wager was placed Sunday morning, and if the Pats win the Super Bowl, the better will net $555,555.50

According to William Hill, Most of the money wagered on the point spread (72 percent) went to the Eagles, though it was nearly split on the money line (51 percent Patriots, 49 percent Eagles).
