To many fans, Sunday's Super Bowl victor is less important than their daily fantasy sports wagers and the very real cash they could win.
Along with the rapid growth of fantasy sports betting sites FanDuel and Draft Kings, has come increased scrutiny and questions about whether daily fantasy sport betting is even legal.
At least $26 billion changes hands in the budding fantasy industry. So is it just a game, or is it gambling?
Attorneys general in six states have declared the daily fantasy games a form of gambling or illegal under state laws, including New York, Texas, Illinois, Hawaii, Vermont and Mississippi. Yet last week, Rhode Island's attorney general declared the activity legal but said it needs to be regulated.
The fantasy sports industry and their attorneys argue it's not gambling because it's a "game of skill" rather than luck. Those who side with the states, however, have an entirely different take.
"Daily fantasy sports are gambling because it is a game of chance," Timothy Fong, co-director of University of California at Los Angeles' Gambling Studies Program told CNBC's "On the Money" in an interview.
Fong argued that any event can alter the game, and "just a single moment in time that determines outcome, which is essentially gambling."
