Nevada sportsbooks lose $5.3 million to football bettors in November

Nevada sportsbooks continued to take a beating from football bettors in November, losing $5.3 million on NFL and college football.

That blow is a bit softer than the $6.2 million books dropped on football wagers in October and, according to the Nevada State Gaming Control Board, is a difference of more than 151 percent compared to football earnings in November 2011.

Books on the Las Vegas Strip avoided a loss, taking in $1.12 million from football bettors with a hold percentage of 0.62 in November. That’s an improvement from the $4.5 million lost on football the previous month.

However, sportsbooks in the Boulder Strip area weren’t so lucky, losing $3.4 million on football with a -5.15 hold percentage. Books in Washoe County, which includes Reno and Sparks, suffered a loss of just over $1 million on football in November.

Silver State sportsbooks lost $1.25 million on parlay card action in November with a hold of -9.51 percent. That's a big change from the parlay card winnings in October, which brought $2.4 million into Nevada books.

Over the past three months, Nevada sportsbooks have won almost $32 million on football alone, thanks to a strong September that took in $43.5 million from pigskin bettors.

According to the Gaming Control Board, Nevada sportsbooks earned $1.56 million on basketball (the reports do not separate NBA from NCAAB) in November, and paid out $3.7 million in baseball wagers (books weren’t taking in any action with the MLB season over, just paying out). Books earned $8.65 million on baseball in October.

This is deceptive reporting, just like how Experts records are presented. Books won 32 million in Sept, which is hidden late in the article, but they took a 5.3 Million dollar BEATING in November. disappointing article
