Big bets

The Super Bowl is said to be the biggest sports betting day of the year.

In 2018, the Supreme Court overturned the federal ban on sports betting, allowing states to legalize it if they so choose. Now 36 states offer legal US sports betting either in person or online. Arizona joined this group and live betting was introduced in September 2021.

According to Sportsbook Review, Americans wagering increased from $44 billion in 2021 to $74 billion in 2022, a 70% increase.

By 2018, the NFL was working hard to distance itself from betting. But the league has made a complete about-face with the big money at stake.

love and facts

In recent years, it has been claimed that more women are victims of domestic violence on Super Bowl Sunday than on any other day.

According to fact-checkers, this claim is false.

The following details are from Snopes: The claim that Super Bowl Sunday is “the biggest day of the year for violence against women” is a case study of how easily an idea consistent with what people want to believe implanted in the public consciousness can be anointed as “fact” even when there is little or no supporting evidence behind it. Christina Hoff Sommers chronicled a timeline of how the apocryphal statistics on Super Bowl Sunday domestic violence were widely (albeit erroneously) published over the course of a few days before the January 1993 Super Bowl in Pasadena.
