Bettors wager $200K, $110K on ‘Monday Night Football’ game

Date:

Most bettors like to wager a little to win a lot. But some big bettors opt for the opposite approach.

A Caesars Sportsbook bettor wagered $198,000 to win $22,000 on the Dolphins on the money line (-900) over the Titans on “Monday Night Football.”

“Somebody is absolutely not worried one little bit,” Caesars vice president of trading Craig Mucklow said. “I think he’s safe. It’s against a team with a less than .500 record.”

Miami is 9-3, with all nine wins against teams with a losing record and all three losses against teams with a winning record.

“With Baltimore winning, Miami has to win. And with the Chiefs losing as well, it gives them a chance (at the No. 1 playoff seed),” Mucklow said. “Miami plays Baltimore in a couple weeks time, so they’ve got to stay in contention.”

Another Caesars bettor placed a $110,000 straight bet to win $100,000 on the Dolphins -13.

Miami (8-4 against the spread, 7-5 over/under) is a consensus 14-point home favorite over Tennessee (4-8, 5-7 ATS, 4-8 over/under), and the total is 46.

The Dolphins, coming off a 45-15 rout of Washington, have covered their last two games, and both games went over the total.

The Titans, coming off a 31-28 overtime loss to the Colts, have dropped four of five while going 1-4 ATS.

In the other Monday night game, also scheduled for 5:15 p.m., the Packers are consensus 6-point road favorites over the Giants, and the total is 37.

“There’s no doubt that we’re going to need both underdogs in (Monday’s) games,” SuperBook vice president Jay Kornegay said.

The Giants (4-8, 4-7-1 ATS, 3-9 over/under) have won and covered two straight, including a 10-7 home win over the Patriots last time out Nov. 26.

The Packers (6-6, 7-5 ATS, 6-6 over/under) have won and covered three straight and four of five, including last week’s 27-19 victory over the Chiefs.
