Sportsbooks take big hit with Chiefs victory over 49ers

Via CBS: Maybe the house doesn't always win? Super Bowl LVIII was a good day for the public as they enjoyed some notable wins across sportsbooks with Kansas City's victory over the San Francisco 49ers. The Chiefs were a 2-point underdog going into this game with the total closing in at 46.5. The majority of the handle was on K.C. and the over, and sportsbooks were sitting pretty for most of the game with the Niners entering halftime up by seven and only 13 points scored. 

However, the Chiefs rallied in the second half to not only edge out the win, but also help hit the over on the total. This victory moved Patrick Mahomes to 11-1-1 ATS as an underdog in his career. 

"We lost on the game itself," Westgate SuperBook vice president Jay Kornegay said, via the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "It was a big swing for us with the Chiefs winning. We needed the 49ers going into it."

Caesars vice president of trading Craid Mucklow added, "The sharps were on the 49ers, and the public was on the Chiefs. It was a great comeback by the public on the game."
