Phil Hellmuth lost an eye-watering $21,000 last night betting on the Super Bowl.

The Poker Brat put eight hefty wagers on before and during the game.

Unfortunately for the 47-year-old every single bet exploded, leaving him nursing his biggest ever sports betting loss as the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots 21-17.

The 11-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Tweeted: "Lost EVERY Super Bowl bet: 8 out of 8.

"Apparently, I like records: set my personal record for biggest loss on one game: $21k plus juice."

Hellmuth bet $2,000 there would be more than 27 points in the first half, and another $2,000 there would be over 53 in the game.

He lost $2,000 more betting the Giants would score more than 27 points, the same amount on the Patriots scoring over 29 and a whopping $3,000 on New England winning the game outright, with a three point handicap.

Three other bets also flopped as his confident prediction that "the Super Bowl will be a track meet with tons of points" failed spectacularly.

At least Hellmuth put a brave face on the disaster.

"Heading to LA Monday to play some poker at the Commerce Casino," he added.

"Tough Sunday, but I'm determined to turn this week into a winning week!"
