The Super Bowl XLVI finalists, New York Giants and New England Patriots, both won the trophy 3 times. This year, only one of the teams will add the precious 4th to their teams’ glorious story.
Well over 110 million people are expected to watch the upcoming Super Bowl XLVI final. This creates huge business opportunities for those able to take advantage of this audience. For example, for advertising and sports betting industries, the business is picking up.
It is estimated that there will be around 70 commercials during the final game, with individual 30-second TV spots sold for as much as $3-4 million.
Sportsbooks, including mobile betting outlets, using the latest Android and iPhone technologies, are fighting for punters.
Online sport betting hasn’t cleared its way yet under American gambling laws. But, betting on sports in the United States, including Super Bowl, is available to worldwide audience as there are offshore enterprises offering real money betting to aficionados.
One of these, Intertops Sportsbook, offers thousands of daily wagers to punters in 180 countries. This online sportsbook has a wide range of betting options on the Super Bowl final for the analysts and statistical gurus, as well as the general public, to participate.
Will the Feds let punters play?
For the New York Giants fans, there is potentially good news. The Giants stadium is actually based in New Jersey, a state that is looking to fight the federal ban on online sports betting.
This, perhaps, will give New York/New Jersey Giants supporters an option to participate in their team’s victories with online bets placed.
