| well this superbowl thingy enjoys quite a massive popularity back in the lands where the great leader donald tramp is the ruler of all things. not really into this feaver of bowl, even they are super, so nothing interesting for moi here, maybe except the amount of cash companies will pay for seconds of commercials time...|

| in the US it is certainly a very big event ... but I think in other countries do not have such a big fuss out of this event ... is a tradition it is the US, and only the United States ... but the bet is certainly interesting although I do not understand this kind of sport|

| I also agree with what has been written already by other posters that american football is mostly popular in united states, naturally it is called american. Stiil lots of information about super bowl when it comes near is on internet, many headlines, stories , interviews. Probably americans are going creazy for this super bowl|

| I have to say that while I am aware of Super Bowl and what it means to many people across the globe, let alone in the United States of Trumpville, with its capitol at Washington Dictatorship Central, I have absolutely no interest in this event and won't be staying up late on any night soon but to those who do.... enjoy!|

| I have always been a small fan of American Football but i always really look forward to the Super Bowl. I think that New England will win but the Atlanta Falcons have been scoring for fun and this could be a high scoring affair |

| the only time of year people get excited by adverts on tv. also when you have 100,000+ cpacity stadium the atmosphere would be reason to go even if you dont know the sport. |

I'd recommend taking the under tbh. Super Bowls are not really high scoring affairs and I see plenty potential running game in this match. The fact that the line is still close to sixty points now is a gift from the gods - means the public expects high scoring game.
Take the under.

| in the United States is a very cool event, and today I watched a commercial for the event advertising ... very interesting ... and to broadcast the exorbitant prices of course ... but I love football and not the correct rugby American|

| I watched first half of super bowl!I am not some fan of american football,but I watched because its final and wanted to see will this match be good!but on half time I thought that all is over and cant believe that new england made such a comeback!|

| Cannot believe that Atlanta players could blew 25 points lead in the biggest game of their lives but hey theres a first time for everything. Absolutely ridiculous was how they have been outplayed after the halftime.|
