…and I’m willing to bet that the team that has the most points at the end of the Big Game Sunday will be your winner but I’m not willing to bet who that team will be, but I am in the minority. The American Gaming Association forecasts that over 7.6 billion dollars will be wagered on Sunday’s game and 31.4 million of those dollars will be wagered in America. Everything from casual bets with friends or as part of a pool or a squares contest will be laid down. 30 states plus Washington D.C. will offer legal gambling and you can bet on just about anything. You can bet on who wins the coin flip to the over under of how long it will take to sing the National Anthem. It’s insane the amount of prop bets you can make this Sunday on just one game. Plus, there won’t be a lack of so-called experts who, for a fee, will give you their guaranteed lock. Every year EA Sports runs the Super Bowl through its Madden football game, and it predicts an upset with the Cincinnati Bengal’s winning 24-21 over the Los Angeles Rams. However, the Madden game isn’t the best prognosticator. The simulated championship game has only picked five of the last 10 winners of the real game. That’s no better than a coin-flip. Here’s one you can do if you’re having a Super Bowl party. Write down all the possible score opportunities on individual slips of paper like running touchdown, passing touchdown, field goal, safety, punt return and so on. Then put all of the slips of paper in a hat and for a nominal fee you can pick one slip of paper out of the hat and if that’s how the team scores you win the pot. Then all the scoring possibilities go back in the hat for the next score to be made. Hopefully come Monday you’re not broke and forgot it was Valentine’s Day. So, forget I ever mentioned any of this and may the best team win.
