Wanna make a bet?

A record 31.5 million Americans plan to bet on Sunday’s Super Bowl, according to estimates released by the American Gaming Association.

That will add up to over $7.6 billion being wagered when the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals take the field.

Officials attribute more betting on the big game because 30 states plus Washington, D.C. now offer legal gambling; That includes Arizona and Connecticut which legalized sports betting just in the past year.

Have you made a wager for the Super Bowl? Is it casually with friends or part of an office pool — or something more “official”? What’s one of the craziest bets you’ve lost?
