Each year, the Super Bowl ranks among the most-watched events in households around the world. 96.4 million people watched the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeat the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV last year, so it should come as no surprise that the Super Bowl is also the most bet on sporting event in the U.S. As states continue to legalize sports betting across the country, many people are becoming more comfortable with online betting, especially prop bets. A prop or proposition bet is a wager not tied to the final score or outcome of the game. This year's Super Bowl features the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals in the first matchup without a top-two seed since 1990.
