Every year, we see a few million-dollar bets get made on the Super Bowl.
Some years there are more of them. Some, fewer. This year, one came in right away.
Nearly two weeks before the 49ers and Chiefs play in Super Bowl 53 in Las Vegas, a bettor at Caesars Sportsbook wagered $1 million on the 49ers to win outright, getting -120 odds.
If the 49ers beat the Chiefs, the bettor will profit $833,333.33.
Super Bowl odds
While this is the first eight-figure bet on the Super Bowl this year, it won't be the last.
When the Chiefs beat the Eagles last year, there were five reported million-dollar-or-more bets made on the game. The previous year, there were seven placed on Rams-Bengals and Chiefs-Bucs had six million or more bets made.
Ahead of this game, we've already seen the odds move from the 49ers opening as 2.5-point favorites to them now being down to -1.5.
It appears this bettor didn't want to risk a one-point win for the 49ers and instead just wagered on their moneyline.
