One bettor is feeling VERY confident in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. ESPN reports the Nevada bettor threw down $2.3 million on the underdog Tampa Bay Buccaneers to cover a 3.5 point spread.

That $2.3 million wager on the Bucs +3.5 (-115) with sportsbook BetMGM would pay out $2 million if the Bucs win OR lose by less than four points.

This is the largest bet any sports book has reported for this year's Super Bowl thus far, ESPN reports.

"This was a bet we were very happy to receive," Jason Scott, vice president of trading for BetMGM, told ESPN. "We had previously written several other six-figure bets, all on Kansas City, and the public is certainly behind Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes."

The Chiefs are favored by three points in the game as they hope to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

But if you are a gambler, you have to ask yourself: do you really want to bet against Tom Brady in his tenth Super Bowl?
