NFL underdogs went on a run Sunday that produced a significant transfer of wealth in Las Vegas.
Ten of Sunday's 13 underdogs covered the spread, with six teams pulling outright upsets. For some bookmakers, it was their most lucrative NFL Sunday ever. For the betting public, it was a multimillion-dollar defeat.
On an average NFL Sunday, sportsbook operator CG Technology will win 4-6 percent of the amount wagered. This Sunday, CG Technology kept more than 16 percent of the money bet on the NFL at their sportsbooks, according to vice president of risk Jason Simbal.
"It was certainly one of the best days we've had," Simbal told ESPN on Sunday night.
