Super Bowl Betting

The NFL has crowned another champion, but not all of the big winners were on the field.

Nevada sportsbooks say they took in a record $132 million in bets for super bowl fifty. They say although a lot of the favorites didn't pan out a lot of people, including the sportsbooks were smiling at the end of the fourth quarter.

For example, Carolina was a favorite to win and to no one's surprise most people put money on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton taking home the title of MVP. However Denver surprised everyone by winning the game 24-10 and it was Denver linebacker Von Miller who took home the MVP award.  read more »

It's been a week of crowds, concerts and super fans; and now it's finally time for the big game.

The countdown to Super Bowl 50 has brought an estimated one million people to the San Francisco Bay Area. And while locals weren't exactly happy with the street closures and extra foot traffic everyone involved is calling the event a success.

Officials with the host city San Francisco say the city has practiced for this with previous events including the America’s cup and Giants’ victory parades. They say this is a sign that the bay area can handle one of the world's biggest games and they hope that the NFL will return sooner rather than later.  read more »

Super Bowl 48 is over; and while the Seahawks ran all over the Broncos the commercials played it safe.

Analysts say the companies that decided to spend $4 million on a 30 second ad for the big game did so with caution. Instead of controversy they went for iconic American images and family centered topics such as puppies, Muppets and Bob Dylan.

Research firm Ace Metrix says this year's line-up featured fewer spots from websites and software companies and more from packaged food and luxury auto makers. Family favorite brands such as Heinz and Cheerio's also made it back to the playing field.  read more »

The Stoner Bowl

It's Super Bowl weekend but for some people the match-up between the mile high and the evergreen state isn't just about football.

In 2012 Washington State and Colorado both voted to legalize recreational marijuana use. And now with the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks playing in the big game pot shops are cashing in.

Nate Johnson owns the Queen Anne Cannabis club in Seattle. He says since clinching the division demand for “beast mode” a strain of marijuana named for Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has skyrocketed. Another big seller is green and blue pot laced cupcakes. But dispensary owners aren't the only one enjoying the idea of two pot friendly states going head to head.  read more »
