CG Technology operates race and sports books at some of Las Vegas’ top casinos, including the Venetian, Palms, The Palazzo, The Cosmopolitan and the Tropicana. Through its proprietary technology, it allows visitors to “trade” sports on mobile devices and sportsbook platforms before and during games.

Although the National Football League has taken a stance against sports gaming and gambling, football gambling is a big market for visitors in Las Vegas. No NFL event is bigger for Las Vegas than the Super Bowl, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in February 2016 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.

Last year, roughly $116 million was handled on Super Bowl XLIX between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks, according to the Nevada Gaming Control Board. That number is second all-time to Super Bowl XLVIII, when sports books processed $119 million in wagers.

As the 2015-2016 NFL Season kicks off on Thursday, Sept.10 between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots, CG Technology has released its official NFL season odds for every team to win the Super Bowl and their respective conference. CG has also released over/under odds for wins of every team.
