We'll put $5 on the Broncos, because that's all we have.

Watching football and chugging beers is awesome — but it gets a lot more awesome if you can win hundreds of dollars off your jerk friends in the process. We always yell at the screen a whole lot harder when rent is on the line. 

And the rest of the world is just as irresponsible and impulsive as we are. Cited from a report by the L.A. Times, the U.S. population will wager over $4.2 billion this upcoming Super Bowl Sunday. And even people who never gamble will this year, according to Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino’s Jay Kornegay:

“A lot of people bet on only one game the entire season, and this is the one… We expanded the prop menu years ago because the games were so boring, and the prop bets help keep fans entertained even if the score is lopsided,” Kornegay said. “Certainly they have become a big part of Super Bowl weekend… I’ve also heard of people throwing prop parties when they get together in groups. They have a lot of fun with them.”

People are even betting on what Peyton will do after he (hopefully) wins and retires: buy a football team, become a sportscaster, drop a rap album with Eli … 

Here's a look at the last 10 Super Bowls, and how much cash people threw around. 

Come on, Manning! Papa needs a new pair of shoes!
