Super Bowl Las Vegas: Game expected to set record

Super Bowl Las Vegas: Game expected to set record

This year’s Super Bowl will be held in Las Vegas for the first time, and is expected to attract record betting totals before and during the Kansas City Chiefs’ game against the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday at 5:00 p.m. 6:30 p.m. 8:30 pm

Legal Sports Reports (LSR) recently conducted an analysis of the betting aspects of this year’s big games. The website estimates total equity in the country’s 39 regulated markets will be close to $1.3 billion, bringing last year’s total to nearly $1.1 billion.

“Depending on how these registrations are handled, U.S. sportsbooks could make more than $100 million in revenue from the Super Bowl, bringing in off-the-book revenue for another great football season. ” the website said.

The American Gaming Association agrees, according to the results of a new survey. According to the AGA, 67.8 million U.S. adults (26%) are expected to bet on the Super Bowl, a 35% increase from last year.

The Super Bowl is coming to Las Vegas.

Legal, regulated sports betting has grown rapidly across the country since the Supreme Court cleared the way for federal gambling legalization in 2018. LSRAn estimated 175 million Americans can now legally bet on this year’s Super Bowl.

According to the report, 25% of bets included parlays, while 10% included pending futures bets. Super Bowl bets typically range from 0.75% to 1.25% of the annual amountfor a given state, which equates to about three to four typical betting days in total.

Facts about the Super Bowl (and where you can place bets).

The 49ers enter the game as a 1.5 to 2.5 point favorite. When it comes to which team bettors choose, BetMGM took a look at some numbers last week.

Although San Francisco is the favorite, there’s probably some Taylor Swift effect going on in most bets. Friend Travis Kelce went down and the Chiefs needed coverage. The money line bets on the Chiefs are also five times that of the 49ers. For Kansas State, as expected, 93% of bets and 95% of the money are on the home favorites.

Not all oddsmakers believe in the Chiefs, however. Caesars Sports reports that a bettor in Michigan is betting $1 million on the 49ers moneyline at -120 odds.

The bettor also placed a $200,000 bet on 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy to be named MVP at +240 One bettor was named MVP at +240. Flip a $100,000 coin and the tails result is -105. If all of this comes to fruition, Michigan’s handicappers will make a profit of more than $1.4 million.
