Super Bowl XLVIII is upon us, and come Sunday, Feb. 2, millions of Americans will cheer on the Denver Broncos or Seattle Seahawks. Fans have been waiting all season to see their teams reach the big game and the stakes are high - in more ways than one. CNBC estimates $10 Billion dollars will be bet on the outcome of this year's Super Bowl.
