Alabama may have lost to Clemson Monday night, but Las Vegas sports books might be the biggest losers after the College Football Playoff National Championship Game .

Bookmakers told ESPN there was an estimated $15 million to $20 million bet on the national championship game across Nevada and most of it went to the Clemson Tigers, who were the underdogs.

William Hill told ESPN it was a 7 figure hit, calling it the "single worst lost of any game."

Representatives from Caesars and MGM also told ESPN they took big losses on the national championship.
