    Be careful on your nfl bets going !!!

    this is what the replacements refs made happen last night in the monday night football game...

    "Most of the customers in the sports book were not happy with the final call," said John Avello, director of the race and sports book at the Wynn in Las Vegas. "The shift was 100 percent. After the (Seahawks) score, all bets were reversed."

    Avello's best guess as to how much money was shifted worldwide on the call? $150 million total bets worldwide.

    Jeff Sherman, assistant director of the race and sports book at the Las Vegas Hotel, says he estimates that the game shifted $15 million in Nevada alone and also concurs with Avello that the worldwide number, including offshore sports books and in Europe, is worth about 10 times more.

    Those who take bets online estimated the shift in money was even greater.

    Mike Perry, spokesman for betting site, told his estimate in the money swing on the call at the end of the game is closer to between $200 million and $250 million.

    Perry said that 70 to 80 percent of the money on his site was put on the Packers, which is in line with the percentage bet in Vegas. At Mandalay Bay, the sportsbook took in about $500,000 in total bets, with about 85 percent of the money on the Packers.
