Casinos see betting increase for National Championship game

The NCAA Football National Championship game between Alabama and Georgia is on tonight and that means sports books are hot.

Bets for the game have been coming in hot, especially in the south with the game being an SEC match-up and rematch.

Casinos like Golden Nugget in Biloxi will be offering over 100 different ways to make bets. Some popular bets include player props such as how many receptions or rushes a specific player will have.

Casinos will offer bets up until kickoff at 7 p.m., but there are also bets that will be offered live during the game. Golden Nugget Casino Assistant General Manager Scott King said, “They’ve been steadily flowing in and what we have is when people come in and bet their NFL games for the weekend and whether they win or lose those, it’s an opportunity to make a bet so right now as we stand, you’ll see people coming in throughout the day to make those last-minute bets, and if anyone wants to come in during the game, we also accept live wagers.”

Bets of all sizes are being made for this game, including a $210,000 bet at the Beau Rivage for a Crimson Tide win.
