For residents of some of the OG sports betting states (after the legalization, of course), betting on the Super Bowl 2021 is now old habit.
New Jersey bettors, for example, will see Tom Brady play in his second Super Bowl since 2018, and it will be the same for Patrick Mahomes.
Both quarterbacks are trying to win their second title since 2018. Brady, of course, won 13-3 with New England in Super Bowl LIII, after beating Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime of the AFC Championship game in 2019. Mahomes led the Chiefs to a 21-point fourth quarter rally last February in a 31-20 win over San Francisco.
When you used to bet with bookies, you had slim pickings: you could take the Chiefs -3, Tampa Bay at +3, or maybe the total, which sits at around 56.5 right now. That was the ancient past, though; online, you can bet just about anything you want.
Say you want to bet Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes will throw for over 400 yards each: you can bet that. If you want to make it easier, most books will have hundreds of options for you to wager on before and during the game.
Most books will also have bet boosts and super boosts for the big game right on the front page. Also, since there are so many new states, many books will also be offering new account signup bonuses, which could come with risk-free wagers as well. There is nothing better than knowing your first bet is either going to win you a lot of money, or get refunded with no risk. It really is a win–win.
So stay tuned to American Gambler over the next 12 days, as we build up to the biggest Super Bowl in sports betting history.
