This is how much money Americans will spend for the Super Bowl

No matter where football fans are on Sunday, they’ll likely be spending money on the 51st Super Bowl.

The New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons are set to battle for the trophy this year, and there will be pumped up fans at the stadium, the local watering holes and in their homes throwing parties. “It’s similar to the why people spend so much on Black Friday and on Christmas and all these different commercialized holidays,” said Ash Exantus, a financial empowerment coach at New York-based banking app BankMobile. “It is based on the hype.”
