Super Bowl XLIV is two days away, and just under half (49%) of adults who plan on watching the big game say they will be watching it intensely, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Nearly as many adults who plan on watching the Super Bowl (44%) will mostly be socializing while the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints duke it out on national television.

More men will be glued to the screen on Sunday than women. Female game-watchers will be socializing more.

Just 17% say they will place a bet, participate in a pool or wager money on the game in some other fashion. An overwhelming majority (80%) say they won’t gamble on the game.

Out of those who will gamble, 57% say their bet will be a serious one with real money. Thirty-eight percent (38%) say it will be a friendly wager for something like dinner or a drink.
