Will this be the biggest Super Bowl for online sports betting?
The Los Angeles Rams will meet the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, February 13, after both sides produced fantastic comebacks to win their Conference Championships.

The popularity of sports wagering keeps growing in the US since the 2018 decision of the Supreme Court which allowed all states to set up legal sportsbooks.

Beijing Olympics has started amid controversy
