The New England Patriots are the favorite once again in this city's sports books to win the Super Bowl Sunday in Minneapolis.

Just days before the Super Bowl, 48 percent of Americans say they'd encourage a child who wanted to play football to play a different sport due to concerns about concussions - up 8 points since the same question was asked four years ago, according to the latest national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

The agency responsible for promoting Las Vegas says 311,000 people are expected to visit the destination during Super Bowl weekend.

NBC is set to aim for America's sense of patriotism with five 60-second ads featuring various American Olympic athletes in hopes to hype up the USA for the Winter Olympics, which start just four days after the Super Bowl.

That average price of sold tickets has held up remarkably well considering the failure of the hometown Vikings to make the big game, which many pundits (and common sense) said would drive the prices way down. A few per cent of ticket is also given to the ticket brokers as packages. This continues the trend seen in the chart of "get-in" prices above - where the yellow Ticket Club line has marked the least expensive ticket across the board since we began tracking the data more than a week ago. Check secondary market resale websites such as - StubHub, SeatGeek, TicketIQ, or Vivid Seats to get cheaper tickets.

Now, 26 years later, Crawford is back for another Pepsi Super Bowl ad - and she's not alone.
