Super Bowl XLII Most Watched Ever

A record number of viewers tuned in to the Super Bowl on Fox yesterday to watch, among other things, Justin Tuck and the Giants defensive line make Tom Brady look like the backup college quarterback that he once was. According to Nielsen Media Research, the Giants upset over the Patriots drew 97.5 million viewers, roughly 3.5 million more than the previous high.

For us, it means we can chalk up another prop bet victory , since we correctly predicted that this would be the most watched game in NFL history. Our record for Super Bowl prop bets this year was a modest 2-1, and we look forward to a few more prop bet victories on the Pro Bowl this coming Sunday.
