This is undoubtedly a result of the increasing legalization of gambling across the United States. Heck, I'm one of those people, Florida recently legalized sports betting and now it's full of Super Bowl bets.
Over the past two weeks, I've been working on betting, including straight bets, parlays, correlated plays, 4-ways, and setups using other sports. We are making a yin and yang bet for the big game. Things will be more fun. (Related: LOL: This has to be one of the biggest blunders in sports media history)
