$6.5 Million Spent on Super Bowl Betting in Rhode Island

Rhode Island casinos recently started offering sports book gambling in their two casinos.  The figures are staggering as $6.5 million was wagered.  Unfortunately, nearly 77 percent of bets against the spread were on the winning New England Patriots. That contributed to a$2.4-million loss, of which the state’s hit was $1.2 million.
