2016 Super Bowl Betting - Superbowl Bets 50
2016 brings the 50 year anniversary of the biggest game in North American sports. The NFL is doing away with their 'Roman Numeral' designation but that just makes the historical significance of the 2016 Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers more obvious. What began in 1966 as a mere competitive formality brought about the merger of the NFL and AFL today has a staggering impact on the United States financially, socially and culturally. Although the Champions League soccer final might be a bigger deal in much of the world in North America there is no bigger sporting event than the Super Bowl in terms of importance, viewership and betting interest.
Super Bowl 50 will be held on Sunday, February 7 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. That's the state of the art home stadium of the San Francisco 49ers but since they're nowhere near the playoffs this season one historical Super Bowl streak remains intact—no team has ever played on their home field in the game. Other than the Los Angeles Rams' Super Bowl XIV loss at the Rose Bowl in nearby Pasadena, no team has even come within a couple hundred miles of playing at home. It won't happen this year either though for official purposes the Denver Broncos will be the 'home team' as the AFC has this status in even numbered games.
Where to Bet on Super Bowl
Not only has the Super Bowl itself changed since its beginning in 1966, so has betting on the 'big game'. If a US citizen wanted to place a bet on the first Super Bowl he had two choices: the sportsbooks of Nevada or the local 'bookie'. Now Super Bowl betting is available anywhere in the world from a variety of sports books. Players can not only bet on the Super Bowl with ease they can shop around for the best sports book bonuses and most current Super Bowl odds. It's never been so easy to place a bet on Super Bowl 50 whether you do it at a Las Vegas sportsbook, from your home computer or even on the go from your smartphone or tablet.
