Across the country, Super Bowl betting is going on today, some of it legal, some of it illegal.
But for the first time there will be legal wagering on the game outside of Nevada, in seven more states.
We estimate that more than $300 million will be wagered on the Big Game.
The lion’s share of it will take place in Las Vegas and New Jersey, the biggest of the new sports betting markets.
We expect tens of millions of dollars of wagers to flow through the two biggest operators in NJ sports betting, Draft Kings Sportsbook and Fan Duel Sportsbook.
Heading into the game, the New England Patriots are a consensus 2.5-point favorite over the Los Angeles Rams.
Draft Kings continues to expand its casino operations profile in New Jersey.
This week, Evolution Gaming announced that it has partnered with the DFS giant to bring live dealer games to Draft Kings Online Casino.
The move, though surprising because of the Draft Kings connection, isn’t a shock for online casinos.
Golden Nugget Online Casino, the first site to offer live dealer games, ascended to the top of the market shortly after their introduction and has remained there ever since.
Draft Kings will be the eighth site with live dealer games and the fourth under Evolution’s umbrella.
The company offers New Jersey residents every type of gambling except for online poker, at this point.
