Approximately $100M is expected to be spent in Nevada alone on bets for the game? Wow, that’s a lot of cash. I wonder how much is spent on illegal gambling. I bet there’s some stat that says the weeks following a Super Bowl, more people are beat up by bookies than at any other time of the year.
Have you ever bet on the Super Bowl and won or lost? I did it online several years ago and won a couple hundred. I was smart and took the money and ran. There are some crazy bets they offer on the game. If you can think of it, there’s probably a bet available. I’ve seen things like a bet on who wins the coin toss to how long one of the halftime songs will be and which song the band will start off with. From the first injury to overtime, they have bets for EVERYTHING.
Daniel said that 55% of all Super Bowl bets are put down on props which are bets on not who wins or loses, but on the other things that happen like which team will get the first penalty, which team will fumble the ball first, or which player will get the first touchdown.
