When it comes to sports betting, no professional league is more popular in North America than the NFL, which has built an incredible brand with sports wagering as a major reason for it. However, there is a risk that is run when it comes to online betting on professional sports, as players are always wary of whether or not there is a fix on in the game. While Super Bowl III is remembered for Joe Namath’s iconic performance and the New York Jets beating the Colts, there is more to the story than just the final result, with an intriguing conspiracy that has gotten a ton of attention over the years.
When Broadway Joe guaranteed a win for the AFL representatives, not even the experts knew what to make of it. After all, the Colts were representing the NFL and favored to win the game by 18 points, another indication that many thought that the AFL was still a second-rate league. However, the Colts went on to turn the ball over five times in the red zone against a defense that ranked just fourth in the AFL, putting up just seven points despite being 18-point favorites to win the 5Dimes game. The greatest upset in NFL history was an incredible story for the league and helped install a sense of parody, even if at the time the AFL was still a second-rate league. There has never been any confirmation of any illegal activity surrounding the actual game, but Super Bowl III will always be remembered for the upset that took place, and the possibilities around it.
