This year Las Vegas began offering betting on the NFL Draft.  Expectations were low from the start.  But surprise, surprise.

$60,000 was bet at South Point Casino.

"I thought it was going to be like two [thousand],” Sportsbook Director Chris Andrews said. "That's a lot at a nickel a whack. That's a lot of bets."

From ESPN.com Chalk:

How many quarterbacks would be taken in the first round, over/under 3.5, and how many LSU players would be drafted in the first round, over/under 2, were the most popular props at Station Casinos' books.

"In both cases, the over was popular with bettors," Chuck Esposito, sportsbook director at Sunset Station, told ESPN in an email. "There was a loud cheer when the [Buffalo] Bills took  Tre’Daviousat No. 27, pushing that over two."

The books didn't receive approval from Nevada Gaming Control until roughly three weeks before the draft and were forced to halt betting April 26
