What you might not realize is that the Super Bowl actually can predict how the stock market will do. It sounds crazy, but history has shown it sure does work.
Super Bowl betting for Super Bowl XLII is likely to set betting records around the world since the interest in the game is at an all-time high. New England is trying to make NFL history and cap a perfect NFL season while the Giants are a New York team that gets huge publicity. What people might not realize about this year’s Super Bowl betting is the historical significance of the game on the stock market. Past history has shown that a win by a team from the original NFL means that stocks will have an up year while a win by an old AFL team means a down year for stocks. Since New England is a heavy Super Bowl betting favorite that does not bode well for the stock market.
If you think all of this is crazy as you look at Super Bowl betting then you might want to reconsider. In 33 of the 41 Super Bowls this indicator has proven correct. That is a winning percentage in excess of 80%. That is a number that any Super Bowl betting gambler would love to have.
Looking at Super Bowl betting this year we see that New England is a big favorite to win the game. Super Bowl betting trends are always interesting to look at but this one involves more than just the game. It has predicted how the economy will do in the future and it has been uncannily accurate. The Patriots are heavy Super Bowl betting favorites and unless the Giants pull off a major upset, the money markets around the world are likely to go down even further.
If you want to look at another Super Bowl betting trend that points to the Patriots then you might want to consider points scored. If a team scores at least 27 points in the Super Bowl they will almost assuredly win the game. Only twice in NFL history has a team scored more than 27 points and lost the game. New England has the best offense in NFL history and is averaging over 35 points per game while New York is only averaging about 23 points per game. That doesn’t bode well for the Giants in Super Bowl betting.
