Super Bowl LVII could see the most bets for any U.S. sports event.
The Feb. 12 contest — between the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona — is projected to take in more than $1.1 billion in wagers at legal sportsbooks across the U.S., also making it the most bet-on Super Bowl.
The top five sports betting states could bring in more than $621.9 million in bets for the game, or around 56.5% of all bets, according to Play USA.
- Nevada is expected to see the most bets at $176.2 million.
- Legalized betting during the Super Bowl will be new to Kansas, Ohio, and Massachusetts.
- Legal online sports betting is now also available in Maryland.
The Eagles’ home state of Pennsylvania does have legalized sports betting, whereas the Chiefs’ Missouri does not. The Eagles are currently favored by two points.
It was projected that legal bets would total $1 billion for Super Bowl LVI — but the American Gaming Association estimated that there were $7.6 billion in total wagers (not just at legal sportsbooks). More than 31 million Americans made legal wagers, and 9 million bet online.
