Americans will wager $6 billion on the Super Bowl this year, a new survey says.

The survey, conducted by Morning Consult for the American Gaming Association, estimated that 22.7 million American adults — or 1 in 10 of us — will bet on the game Sunday between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams in some form. That could be online, with a bookie, at a casino, in a pool or squares contest, or with a friend.

About 1.8 million adults plan to bet illegally through a bookie, with millions more going through offshore online groups, the survey said.

As for who Americans are wagering on, 52 percent said they will bet on the Rams.

“The interest in legal, regulated sports betting in the United States has never been higher,” association President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Miller said in a prepared statement. “More Americans than ever before will be able to place their bets with legal sportsbooks now operating in eight states, generating valuable revenue for state, local and tribal governments and increasing fan engagement with the game.

“These results, however, also point to the continued viability of the dangerous, illegal sports betting market in America. It is more important than ever for jurisdictions to enact sound policies that provide a safe, legal alternative with protections for the nearly 23 million Americans who will place a bet on the big game.”

The survey was conducted Jan. 22 and interviewed 2,201 adults nationwide. The interviews were conducted online and the data were weighted. The margin of error is 2 percent.
