While the action on the field is of interest from a sporting sense, the big game draws an enormous amount of interest from the gambling industry, pulling in many casual fans, with data showing approximately 26 million Americans will wager on the game in some capacity for a total of around $7 billion (£5.1 billion).
Betfair spokesman Sam Rosbottom confirmed that 90 per cent of bets last year, when the Chiefs upset the San Francisco 49ers at Super Bowl LIV, came on the Sunday itself, while he also confirmed from the bookies’ perspective, Brady and the Bucs causing the upset would be the worst-case scenario given their popularity with punters - with some of them able to match the Bucs before the season started at 74/1 for a mega payout.
Last year, we saw the Chiefs enter the game at a -1.5 favourite, with the total points line set at 53.5 points - the biggest underdog of recent times was the New York Giants, who covered an underdog at +12 points versus the New England Patriots and won outright at Super Bowl XLII.
There is not just the action on the field to consider when making a bet, you can find a wager on pretty much anything surrounding the event as a whole: including the national anthem, sung by Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan, the half-time concert by The Weeknd and even what colour the Gatorade bath will be for the winning coach.
