An insight into the types of people who bet on sport, especially for horse racing, through bookmakers or betting agencies. In the United States, they are known as the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl follows a national American football league. Betting takes place to guess the result of the game, although punters are allowed to pay attention to other sports as well. The sport that determines the winner is one that has attracted the most attention in previous games. In the United States, the Super Bowl is usually played in February or March.
– the first game in Super Bowl history was played at the Los Angeles Coliseum on January 15, 1967, when the Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 35 to 10. – Super Bowl XXXV was the first Super Bowl played at the new MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The winning team is awarded the Vince Lombardi trophy, named after the former Green Bay Packers head coach.
– It is the only sport with a pre-match betting line. Betting starts at midnight, and ends 48 hours before kick-off. This allows gamblers to bet on the weather, the level of competition, and other factors influencing the outcome. Bettors can also place bets before the match starts.
– And in 2013, the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints had the biggest gap between their opening and closing prices in Super Bowl history. The Vikings were expected to win at 8.5 points but ended up losing by 13.

– Finally, betting on a Super Bowl is a sign of the ever-growing influence of technology in sports. In the old days, you had to go to the bookies to place a bet. Today, Super Bowl betting is easier and easier thanks to numerous websites that allow anyone to place a wager on the game.
– The competition is so fierce, as betting on the Super Bowl is even more like a game of chess. Bookmakers have worked hard to make sure they have enough information to work out who will win the match and provide the best odds, so any mistakes could lead to huge losses.
– A bookmaker can earn more than £2 million ($2.8 million) on one match alone.
