Super Bowl Prop Bets Creating Big Stir Among Gamblers

Prop bets have become the game inside the game for sports gamblers. The traditional way to gamble on the Super Bowl was to pick one side or the other and the total score of the game. Those days are long gone as these days gamblers have all kinds of options to spend their money.

Prop bets have grown and grown over the past two decades after Perry scored that touchdown and now there are all kinds of options beginning with the games opening coin toss. A person can wager not only on whether the flip will come up heads or tails, but who will win the toss. Also they can connect any of the previously noted options.

Then there are the quarterbacks, how many yards, completions, touchdowns, and interceptions are just a few of the dozens of possibilities that exist based on the quarterbacks.

The same odds can be found for both the running backs and wide receivers as well as tackles made by various defensive players.

Some of the most obvious prop bets are who will win the MVP and who will score the first touchdown. There even is the availability to pick how the first touchdown will be celebrated this year.

Kickers have their own area in which yone can pick how many field goals will be made and missed and also includes distances with varying odds.

Ultimately, the big game must end and for those out there who like to debate that, there are prop bets on who will score last and whether the game will go to overtime or not.

For the old fashioned who do not understand all of these options, the ability is still there to just pick a team that is playing and hope for the best.…

Sportsbooks in Delaware a Possibility By Next Football Season

Traveling by car from the south states of America up through the chilly northeast I decided to stop in the great state of Delaware so that I could tour the popular Dover Downs Race and Casino.

I managed to interview some executives at Dover Downs and ended up discussing what they believe their plans are for the future. With the opening up of slots parlors in Pennsylvania, having Atlantic City not far away, and with the new competition expected to come from the beginning of table games in West Virginia; the Delaware casinos anticipate a major drop in business.

To offset this, the Delaware state legislature is considering ways of improving attendance to their casino sites to ensure that a massive amount of revenue is not lost permanently.

How are they planning on doing this? Well, it is important to know a little known fact, one of the executives told me… “Delaware is one of a few states in America that allow by their constitution betting on sports. However, there has been no legal venue for this to occur.”

According to the executive, the Delaware legislature is currently seeking ways to define their ability to institute this activity and it makes sense since they already do simulcast wagering on horse racing.

Dover Downs is already building a larger hotel on the site in anticipation of increased interest due to the proposed sports betting laws. Delaware is not allowed to have table games such as roulette, blackjack or craps according to their constitution, however. In order for Delaware to offer these games, voters must pass a constitutional amendment and currently there is no talk of such a move.

For years, gamblers have preferred Delaware casinos because the slots have higher payout rates than Atlantic City. The jackpots are not as high, however, the mid range and smaller payouts are more frequent, which helped to make Delaware casinos a more attractive destination for some seniors and many locals. Added to the attraction of tourists to Delaware is that there is no sales tax, which is appealing to seniors who like to go shopping in local area stores, and dining out is less expensive, too. Overall, Delaware offers a good value to the budget conscience.

According to the executives at Dover Downs in Delaware, there may be sports gambling by the next football season which could save the state’s casinos.…
