A new survey conducted by Morning Consult asked more than 2,200 respondents how they felt about sports betting. The survey was conducted a few days after the May 14 Supreme Court decision.
- The first point made by the survey was the amount of legal vs. illegal wagers on the 2018 Super Bowl, and the graphic is staggering.
- What sport do bettors most want to wager on? Not surprisingly, it’s the NFL. With almost 30 percent saying they would bet on the Super Bowl if allowed, 24 percent would participate in betting on NFL games, by far the largest interest group of all the sports.
- And who will the sports bettors be? The Morning Consult survey says they’ll be younger and less affluent than your typical gambler. To view the full survey, visit www.morningconsult.com.
