The Super Bowl is all about food, TV commercials – and, apparently, losing money on bad bets.
A whopping 92% of people who have bet on the big game say they’ve lost money at times, with 14% of them saying they’ve parted with more than $100, according to a new survey.
Almost one-third of people – 31% – say they’ve wagered on the Super Bowl, which this year is a rematch of the New York Giants and the New England Patriots.
Not surprisingly, men place far more bets than women, 41% to 21%, according to the survey by CouponCabin.com. Some people say they’ve won money: 44% say they’ve walked away with $100 or more and 7% claim to have taken in $501 or more.
