Plain and simple: America is betting on the Super Bowl.

Around 68 million adults in this beautiful nation of ours — which is nearly 1 in 4 — will be gambling on Super Bowl LVIII, breaking betting records for the Big Game by a far margin, according to the American Gaming Association, the gambling industry’s national trade association.

The American Gaming Association dropped figures Tuesday that feature wagers placed with legal outlets, bookies that are illegal and foreign operations that are online-based.

It’s expected that the amount of Super Bowl bets wagered in 2023 will be 35% higher than 2022, which set the prior record. Super Bowl LVIII is estimated to bring in a whopping $23.1 billion worth of bets, which skyrockets $16 billion over last year’s Big Game, according to the group’s predictions.

This is definitely a result of gambling getting more legalized all over the United States. Hell, I’m an example of that with Florida recently legalizing sports betting, now I’m loaded up with Super Bowl bets.

The whole two weeks I’ve been working on wagers, whether it’s straight bets, parlays, correlated plays, 4-ways, set-ups using other sports, I’ve got wagers out the ying-yang for the Big Game — which is gonna make things so much more fun.
