Another staggering statistic is that the Super Bowl is the most wagered on sporting event in the US. There are some sites dedicated to the betting component of sports and this is their biggest day. There will be an estimated 6 billi0n dollars worth of bets placed across a smorgasbord of options from company office pools to tons of in game stats to the wacky. Merchandisers are also cashing in on roughly 100 million in spending.
Grocery stores get a surge in sales from people hosting parties. Walmart’s sales have been pretty accurate in predicting the winner for the last several years. Another less accurate method has been video game maker Electronic Arts simulation run each year which pits the two teams to play against each other using the Madden NFL game.
One thing the video game can’t offer is the spectacular half time shows that are orchestrated each year which of course brought us the most infamous wardrobe malfunction of all time.
