Last year, the American Gaming Association estimated that nearly $8 billion would be bet on the Super Bowl. This year, that total could surpass $10 billion.

More importantly—for sportsbooks, at least—Philadelphia’s home state of Pennsylvania has legal sports betting, while nearby Kansas also accepts legal wagers.
Super Bowl betting totals have been growing at an exponential rate since the market fully opened in 2018. With less than a week until the big game, gambling agencies are on the brink of another major win.
