Last night's Monday Night Football game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams was an offensive explosion with 105 points scored, way more than the 64 over under number that William Hill posted. That result saw the bookmaker take a large seven figure loss for the event.
William Hill employee Michael Grodsky said that their Nevada sportsbooks took a huge loss on the game, as 69% of punters bet the over. Sports network ESPN said that the 64 over under was the highest for an NFL game in 32 years, and the result still blew it away. The Rams were 1 point favorites to open, but closed at -3. The Rams won on a 40 yard touchdown pass from Jared Goff to Gerald Everett with 1:49 to play, 58 seconds after the Chiefs Patrick Mahomes threw a 10 yard score to Chris Conley to take the lead.
The game was hyped up as being the best of the NFL season, and its likely that other sportsbooks around the country took in healthy numbers of wagers on the game. We don't have any information on the total bets placed, but we'll update readers as we learn more about the action surrounding the event.
