The Super Bowl is so much more than a football game, entertainment product or television program. It’s an unofficial holiday that serves as a business, marketing and cultural juggernaut. A lot of industries ancillary to the National Football League do their biggest business in and around the Super Bowl, and the gaming sector is certainly one of those.

For Super Bowl LIII, $325 million in total bets is projected at legal sportsbooks across the country, and there is action on so much more than who will win (New England Patriots are favored by 1.5 points) or the over/under (currently sitting at 59).

By this time, you probably already knew those numbers, but what about Super Bowl LIII prop betting?

You’ve got to check out the Super Bowl 53 Props at TopBet, which are often extremely detailed and highly specialized. Start with the category of “who will score the first touchdown in the Super Bowl?” You’ll see 19 different individual players listed, and four additional categories, including “no touchdown” on top of that. In terms of total points scored, you’ll see a dozen different choices to bet on, with the final classification being 78 points or more.

You can also bet on whether: the first touchdown will be scored by a player with an odd or even jersey number, the over/under on yardage for the first touchdown, lead changes, over/under on field goal distance, over/under on missed field goal attempts and so much more.

If it that seems like overload, it’s really not because wagering interest in this game will truly be off the charts.

“We’re setting the line at a $100 million in legal bets in New Jersey and $325 million in total bets placed on the game at legal sportsbooks nationwide,” said Dustin Gouker, lead sports betting analyst for PlayNJ.com.

“An intriguing matchup with two high-powered offenses and plenty of star power, and the proliferation of proposition bets, should all combine to make for an impressive total.”

This will be the first Super Bowl in which legal bets can be made in the garden state; joining the other now legal jurisdictions in the United States including Delaware, Mississippi, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and West Virginia.
