Super Bowl XLVIII odds and top prop bets on PlayNow.com

29/01/2014

The single largest sports betting event in the world kicks off this weekend as the Seattle Seahawks take on the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.

More bets are placed each year on the Super Bowl than on any other individual sports event.

BCLC offers more than 300 different bets on ‘Super Sunday’. Peyton Manning and the Broncos are currently favoured by 2 points and the over/under for total points scored is 47.

At the beginning of the NFL season both Seahawks and Broncos were 10/1 odds to win the Super Bowl on PlayNow.com. Player and in-game prop bets have Richard Sherman at 29/1 to take the MVP honours, while Marshawn Lynch is the current betting favourite to score the first touchdown at 4/1.

Live betting will be available on PlayNow.com for registered players to make a wager as the momentum of the game changes.

It is estimated that $10 billion is wagered globally with over 200 million people placing bets on the game. In 2013, players in B.C. wagered approximately $275,000 on Super Bowl through BCLC.

In B.C., wagers can be placed online through PlayNow.com or at any lottery retailer through Sports Action.

Through Sports Action and PlayNow.com, BCLC offers safe, secure and socially responsible gambling entertainment to sports players while generating revenue to benefit all British Columbians. Each year, proceeds from BCLC games help fund important health, education and community programs across B.C.
