New England Patriots, Still the Favorite to Win the 2019 Super Bowl LIII (53) Championship
Nearly every American NFL enthusiast is placing bets where their mouth is, on the forthcoming Super Bowl LIII face-off on February 03, 2019. Fans of the Los Angeles Rams are unfazed over the formidability of the New England Patriots; confident that the Rams have what it takes to claim the title. After all, the Rams demonstrated dominance in the 2018 National Football League by heading undefeated into Week 8.
In fact, sportsbook operators immediately declared the Rams as one-point favorites right after the final match-up was set. At that time, the New England Patriots came out as opening line underdogs for the 2019 Super Bowl and stayed that way for about a week. Patriot fans regarded the opening line as ridiculous.
After the Pats settled the final Super Bowl matchup by beating Kansas City last Sunday, betting activities clearly manifested a different trend. Nearly every betting outlet and online betting sites in America, saw money pouring in for the New England Patriots; relegating the Los Angeles Rams to the underdog position.
To Bet or Not to Bet, Will it Make a Difference?
Despite the betting frenzy, it is best to keep in mind that sport matches are not just betting markets. Americans know this because for more than a decade, sport betting was illegal. Major sports leagues fought tooth and nail to make sure that it stays that way; wary that betting activities will mar the integrity of every sport event that takes place.
However, legal battles initiated by the State of New Jersey, ended with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the right of every state to allow single-game betting in their jurisdiction.
Whereas before, most sports loving Americans were content to just watch and root for their team with a beer in hand. Many though took chances by placing bets, even if illegally, on what they perceive as the best sport betting website (เว็บพนันบอล แนะนํา). After the Supreme Court ruling, associations like the NFL, MLB, NHL, and NBA embraced the legality of sport betting by partnering with sports gambling operators. The arrangement now allows sports associations or leagues to rake in a percentage of money gained by their sports betting partners.
At the end of the day, those who placed bets on winners, experience some form of gratification regardless of the type of bet used as medium: money-line, point spread or over/under. Bad bets are no cause for worries, as they can help sports bettors be wiser the next time.
