In less than a week the national anthem will be sung, the coin will be flipped, the whistle blow, the ball will be kicked and online sports wagering biggest single day event will be underway. This year’s Super Bowl in Arizona promises to bring plenty of excitement to online sports wagering and its fan interest is through the roof. Sports wagering fans often have a love hate relationship with the Super Bowl as it so often turns out to be a rotten game.
In recent years the Super Bowl scores have been much closer than they were in online sports wagering past and perhaps the blow outs of the late 80s and 1990s are gone. It would be nice to think that were the case and that online sports wagering fans could have something to look forward to in the future.
For too long the Super Bowl has lacked any real appeal as an online sports wagering opportunity, and has for decades been little more than a reason to party with online sports wagering friends.
But since the era of free agency, and really since the beginning of this millennium things have gotten much more interesting when it comes to online sports wagering on the Super Bowl.
Once the effects of free agency came about and teams begin getting better and worse over night thanks to free movement of superstars online sports wagering on the Super Bowl has taken on a whole new complexion.
Online sports wagering fans can think back to Reggie White signing with the Green Bay Packers in the late 90’s as perhaps the first real free agent impact on a Super Bowl online sports wagering scenario.
Then of course Marshal Faulk going to the St Louis Rams also helped the Rams get to the Super Bowl, something that most never expected.
Falk was traded of course but the Colts never would have pulled the trigger if they didn’t think they could pick up a free agent or draft someone to replace him, so even indirectly free agency has played a roll in online sports wagering on the Super Bowl.
This year the roll of free agency is ridiculously evident in the Super Bowl scenario. Just look at the New England Patriots: Wes Welker, Junior Seau, Mike Vrabel, Dante Stalworth and the list goes on and on and on.
Free agency has changed the face on the Super Bowl, and according to most fans, it’s changed things in a good way.
