Sportsbooks in New Jersey Take $143.7M in Wagers for Super Bowl LVI

Data from New Jersey sportsbooks tell us $143.7M was wagered on the game, a 22.4% increase over last year’s takings.

Sportsbooks paid $135.9M in winning bets on the game, which left $7.8M in profit as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tasted victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Even though 2021 saw sportsbooks take a smaller $117.4M on the Super Bowl, they paid out a total of just $106.1M for a larger profit of $11.3M.

Earnings aside, though, there has been an upward trend in bets placed, both in terms of the dollar amount and number of bets.

It’s pointing to a very positive picture. Nevada was up over 30% from last year, New Jersey was up over 20%, which is particularly impressive given that New York is now online.
