A third of Super Bowl betting expected to be online

According to the American Gaming Association (AGA), some 36 million adults from 21 states will now have access to digital wagers, making for one of the busiest Super Bowl games on Sunday.

In terms of online wagering activity, one-third of all wagers will be placed via mobile devices – out of a total of $4.3bn predicted betting handle for this Sunday's game.

There are many excellent offers running right now, with PointsBet and other sportsbooks operating numerous possible props, fixtures, and value odds.

Commenting on the upcoming Super Bowl, AGA President and CEO Bill Miller said that many Americans have been turning away from the illegal sports betting industry in a bid to bolster the legal segment, and more importantly, because licensed betting markets are finally available.

According to the AGA, 65% of all those who plan to place a wager with a bookmaker this year say that it's important to them that this bet is placed at an authorized gambling website.

As mentioned earlier, there are 21 states that now accept sports betting in the US, and by the end of the year, over half of all states will have legalized the activity.

Some $150bn are reportedly wagered offshore, but the AGA is yet to re-draft this number as the organization will need to take into account the rapid legalization of the sport.

However, despite more legal options to bet on, the total handle is expected to fall because of covid-19. Normalization in sports betting handle is likely to occur in 2022 or 2023.

Meanwhile, some 56% have backed the Chiefs and 44% have backed the Buccaneers. If you wish to bet on a blockchain site, there are numerous options such as Bitcasino.io, FortuneJack, and 1xBit.
