This weekend, Americans will gorge themselves, drink themselves silly, and -- oh yeah -- possibly take in a football game.
Ahead of Super Bowl Sunday, the financial website WalletHub has crunched the numbers to determine how many chips will be crunched, how much beer swilled, and how much dough Americans are willing to shell out to celebrate America's unofficial national holiday.
Not surprisingly, perhaps that 1 in 10 say they'll miss work on Super Bowl Monday. Here's a deeper look at Super Bowl LIII by the numbers:--200,000 Uber/Lyft airport pickups will be made in the 10 days leading to Super Bowl LIII--$400 million of positive economic impact for Atlanta--$270 is the average hotel rate in Atlanta this week: 200% higher than normal--$7,166 is the average price of a Super Bowl LIII ticket on the resale market--$5.24 Million is the average cost for a 30-second commercial during the game
