Holly Holm caused quite a surprise by delivering the Ronda Rousey upset loss in Melbourne that was the first in the career of Rowdy.
Many punters suffered big money losses and many won big and followers of sports scores news were stunned all over the planet. And the Ronda Rousey upset loss was very painful for land-based and online sportsbooks in Australia and all over the world.
Virtually all the US bookies recorded losses as Holm, who was a 8/1 underdog before the fight, delivered the disastrous last attack. Amongst the losers, MGM sportsbook became the biggest looser. The majority of the punters were backing the underdog, and this caused a six-figure loss to the bookie.

Lenny Fresquez, Holm’s agent and trainer revealed that they also cashed out quite an amount thanks to the odds that were so high. He said,”We made a lot of money. And thank you, Vegas, for putting the odds up like that. We got into some really good money. We got into six figures, I’ll put it that way.”
The Ronda Rousey upset loss shook Las Vegas quite heavily. However, some interesting results in Sunday’s NFL games helped them to recover quickly. Nine NFL underdogs managed to get away with a win in Sunday’s games.
For land-based and online sportsbooks in the US it was again the best Sunday in the season after their previous record in week 9. Bookies made the biggest money on the Detroit Lions beating heavy favorites Green Bay Packers. This helped Las Vegas and other US sportsbooks considerably to recover after the Ronda Rousey upset loss costed them big.
This was the second NFL weekend in a row that tricked US bettors in states where gambling laws allow the operation of land-based and online sportsbooks. However, next week there will be a list of cool NFL matchups that might help punters to make some money on professional football.
