DAYTON — Whether you’re a football fan or not, everyone still has their bet against who’s going to win the big game.
More than 31 million Americans will be betting on the Super Bowl this year, according to estimates released by the gambling industry’s national trade group.
With the big game just days away News Center 7′s Dontre Drexelius hit the streets to see what people think the outcome will be.
“I think the Bengals are going to win of course,” said Brigette Bogle, she thinks they will win 28 to 14.
Abe Bassett of Beavercreek also predicts the Bengals will win, but his prediction of the score was much higher.
“The Bengals are going to win obviously, 103 to 25,” Bassett said.
That score would be truly amazing and record-breaking!
The highest-scoring Super Bowl was in 1995, in which the San Francisco 49ers defeated the San Diego Chargers 49 to 26 for a combined 75 points, according to NFL records.
Bruce Goodman of Dayton thinks the Bengals will win, but in overtime.
“Bengals! By three in overtime, 23 to 20,” Goodman said.
Ohio’s Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted had something to say about the game.
He said all of Ohio should be excited for the Super Bowl and also predicted a close game.
“I think it’s going come down to how well the Bengals’ offensive line performs,” Husted said.
He predicts the Bengals will pull a very narrow victory with a score of 24 to 23.
While their predictions of the scores may be different, many are rooting for the Bengals to take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy Sunday.
