2014 Cupid’s arrow will be shot more in New Jersey than any other state, on average, this Valentine’s Day, according to leading betting intelligence website http://www.US-Bookies.com, which is a hub for state-based wagering sites, including http://www.bet-nj.com. Based on the betting odds and the Garden State’s estimated population of more than 9 million*, more than 15,000 people in New Jersey are expected to be part of a wedding proposal on February 14.

"The odds suggest record numbers of Americans could get down on one knee this Valentine's Day. Cheesy or not, when it comes to being the nation's favorite time to propose by some distance, all bets are off,” said industry analyst Alex Donohue of Bet-NJ.com, a US-Bookies network website. “Although the overall number of proposals in other states will be higher, the line suggests New Jersey is likely to be the most romantic come the 14th based on the number of people popping the question relative to overall population. There must be something in the Garden State’s water.”

Based upon data gathered, US-Bookies.com established hypothetical betting over/under for couples to get engaged in New Jersey on Valentine’s Day is 15,000. Odds for the actual number to surpass 15,000 are set at 8/11, with even odds for the number of engagements to fall short. Based on these figures and the state’s population, 1 in every 600+ residents will be part of a wedding proposal on February 14th. With New Jersey making up about 2.75% of the US population, the predicted engagements account for 3% of the nationwide over/under of 500,000.
