NEW YORK – New York Super Bowl fans can wager on the Big Game online at regulated mobile books for the first time with SB 56.
The Super Bowl is the biggest sports betting event in the country every year, so New Yorkers are sure to embrace the odds this year.
New York Compared To Other Markets
New York sports bettors have already shown interest in betting on the Super Bowl and other sporting events with mobile sportsbooks. The New York Gaming Commission reported more than $1.6 billion wagered in the first month of activity, the largest single betting month in US history.
This early success automatically shoots New York to the number one sports betting market in the country. In contrast, Arizona saw $777 million wagered in its first two months of being active and this was deemed a major success.
What makes New York different is that sports betting was already available only through physical wagers at land-based operations.
Local fans already have an understanding and feel for betting on sports, it is just more convenient now.
Looking at other top markets like Nevada, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, New York’s potential betting handle can be inferred.
Past Records And Super Bowl Handles
Super Bowl 55 was the most bet on Super Bowl in history. Nevada raked in $136.1 million in wagers, NJ sportsbooks took in $117 million, and Pennsylvania saw $53.6 million bet during the Big Game.
Nevada and New Jersey are the only other markets to eclipse $1 billion in sports betting handle in a single month.
New Jersey’s record high has been $1.3 billion in bets and Nevada’s has been $1.1 billion. With both markets clearing $100 million during last year’s Super Bowl, it is likely that New York will see similar numbers.
Super Bowl 56 is gearing up to be another record-breaking event, with more markets than ever having access to Super Bowl odds and betting lines than ever.
New York can establish itself as a market leader some Super Bowl Sunday.
