Which sporting event is biggest when it comes to betting world wide? (Legally that is)…

A) the World Cup

B) Super Bowl

C) March Madness Tournament

D) World Cup of Cricket

Answer is A. All four events are massive when it comes to betting and the Super Bowl is impressive considering it a single day event unlike the others. But the 2014 Brazil World cup reported well over $500 Million in world wide bets. While the Super Bowl and March Madness is predominantly bet in the US and come close to each other with around $250-$300 Million bet throughout the Licensed Sports Books. However, illegally wagered bets is another story. Some reports say anywhere from $9-$12 Billion may be wagered on March Madness where as $4 Billion on the super bowl and no one can really say for the month long World Cup or Cricket one of the most popular sports in the world.
