Nearly $5 Billion USD in Bets Will Be Placed on Super Bowl LI

According to a report from the American Gaming Association, an estimated $4.7 billion USD in bets will be placed by Americans on Super Bowl LI this Sunday. Because Nevada is the only state that legally allows sports gambling, 97% of the aforementioned sum (approximately $4.5 billion USD) will be placed illegally, mainly through underground means and offshore sites. That’s an 11% increase from Super Bowl L’s numbers.

As Forbes reports:

The AGA represents the $240 billion USD U.S. casino industry and has been a vocal advocate for a change of federal law, which currently precludes states (other than Nevada) from allowing individuals to wager on the outcomes of individual games. It has cited to a September 2016 report, which concluded that legalized and regulated sports betting is a necessary condition to preserve and protect the integrity of sports, not a detriment to the integrity of sports.

Yet, National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell has remained steady in his position that the league enforce the current federal law that largely prohibits sports betting throughout the U.S., which was originally implemented to protect the integrity professional and amateur sports. Even though the Oakland Raiders appear destined to move to Las Vegas, Goodell has not wavered on his belief that the federal law should remain in place.

Whether it’s legal or not, people are going to bet on the game. As of Tuesday, the New England Patriots are three-point favorites over the Atlanta Falcons.

Vince Staples Announces the Mysterious 'Bagbak'

Even though he’s been consistently killing it as a featured guest and collaborator in recent months, Vince Staples has yet to move beyond last summer’s essential Prima Donna EP. However, with a new year well underway, it looks like the Long Beach rapper is ready to release something on the solo front. Keeping his tactics cryptic, Staples has taken to social media — specifically Instagram and Twitter — to introduce a new musical effort known as “Bagbak.” Several media outlets have speculated on “Bagbak” being anything from a fully-formed project to a new single, so, for now, critics and casual fans alike just have an announcement, some artwork and a release date to work with.

Barring any more announcements or revealings, check back in on this Friday, February 3 to find out what Vince Staples’ next major move holds.
