Super Bowl Bet

The Super Bowl is the most popular sporting event of the year. Millions of people watch the Big Game on TV and plenty of people wager on it, legally and illegally. It is expected that Super Bowl betting this year will once again smash records as since last year’s NFL season finale, 45 million more American adults have the opportunity to place legal bets in their home state. So how much money will be bet on the Super Bowl this year?

The American Gaming Association (AGA) estimates that a record 31.4 million people in the US would wager around $7.61 billion on this year’s game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the LA Rams. The number of people expected to wager would be a 35 percent increase from last year’s Super Bowl.

“The results are clear: Americans have never been more interested in legal sports wagering,” said AGA President and CEO Bill Miller in a press release. “The growth of legal operations across the country not only protects fans and the integrity of the games and bets, but also puts illegal operators on notice that their time is limited.

More money is legally wagered on the Super Bowl than ever before in the US and expansion outside of Nevada is still just getting started. Thirty states, plus Washington, D.C., have legalized sports betting so far, with three more legal markets soon to launch.

This should continue to see wagerings on the Big Game increase as more states legalize sports gambling.

It’s all on the up and up

More and more, Americans are flocking toward legal sports betting options over oft-shady off-shore offerings and local bookies. The AGA reports that 76% of expected Super Bowl bettors say it is important for themselves to use a legal, regulated sportsbook to place their wagers. That is also an increase from last year, up 11 percent.

In addition, 41% of Americans recall seeing responsible gaming messaging in the past year. In 2021, just 12% of people remember seeing responsible gaming messaging – a significant increase.
