The Super Bowl is Sunday and while it’s always an exciting day for football fans, apparently this year it won’t necessarily be an expensive one. A new LendingTree survey finds:
- Super Bowl spending is expected to be down 19% this year.
- The average American will spend $88 on Super Bowl Sunday, down from $108 last year.
- And some people aren’t even interested in the game, with 28% saying they won’t even be watching, up from 21% last year.
Some of that money being spent will be used to bet on the game.
- About 30% of Americans say they will place some sort of bet on the Super Bowl.
- The things folks will bet on include:
- The overall winner (18%)
- The final score (9%)
- The outcome of the coin toss (4%)
- The length of the National Anthem (3%)
- Parlay bet (3%)
- Other (1%)
- Overall, Gen Z are the most likely to bet on the game (42%), followed by millennials (41%) and men (36%).
But most people won’t be betting a ton, with 62% of folks planning to gamble less than $100.
