BetUS.com Releases Geographic Research
A week has passed in World Cup 2006 and spectatorship has reached astronomical heights all over the world. Even US viewership has exceeded expectations. Before the Cup started the United States grabbed the #4 World ranking, and US fans logged on in droves to the online sportsbook BetUS.com to wager heavily on the US team to move well beyond the first round. With their first round shellacking however, those numbers have shifted, and intense research by the website has shown that wagering now more accurately depicts the ethnic make-up of the melting pot that is the USA. The largest most respected sportsbook on the web, BetUS.com released the following statistics today. "Extensive research shows that people from every state in America have wagered on the World Cup this year at BetUS.com," stated analyst Matt Ross. "Whereas at the start of the Cup we had bets for the US absolutely flooding our site, now that a few games have been played, support is much more widespread illustrating the diversity of cultures that make up the US."
