In the lead-up to Super Bowl Sunday, there seemed to be a general consensus among fans: The Eagles will keep it close, but the Patriots will pull away at the end to win.

One part of that prediction came to fruition: it was a close, hard-fought game throughout. But one part, of course, did not prove to be true: it was the Eagles that pulled away in the game's waning moments. Doug Pederson, Nick Foles and company shocked the football world, besting Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and company.

When people are shocked by a sports result, that inevitably means the folks in Las Vegas have lost a lot of money. So, how much did the gambling houses in Vegas lose on this year's Super Bowl? Take a deep breath.

The majority of bettors (54 percent) wagered with the Eagles to cover the spread. One gambling house lost more than $4.5 million on three bets alone, according to USA Today's A.J. Perez.

William Hill finished the night with a multi-million-dollar loss, but it wasn't the only gambling source that took a big hit.

At MGM, one bettor alone won roughly $5 million. Placing $3 million on the Eagles moneyline was perhaps a ballsier call than Doug Pederson's design of a goal-line pass to Foles, but clearly the huge gamble paid off.

Don't feel too bad for MGM, though. Unlike William Hill, this sportsbook made it out OK in the end.

Many books lost money on prop bets.

If you had to put money on the game—which, of course, comes with its own risks and stressors—prop bets were the safest way to go. Considering the game featured an NFL record for yardage accumulated, you probably should have circled "over" down the line.

Odds are already out on which team will be next year's Super Bowl champ, and the favorite is—you guessed it!—New England.
