GREEN BAY (WGBA) -- It is a popular time for Packers fans as the team is now just two games away from the Superbowl. However, advocates for addiction help are warning about going overboard with betting.

"Just focus on having fun and betting within a budget," said Rose Blozinski, from Wisconsin Council on Problem Gamblers.

She says it is possible for more people to bet on the game, including new people to gambling. Anyone planning on betting on the game to only bet within a budget.

"We want people to have fun," Blozinski said. "We don't want people to be betting their bills or their house payments."

She says if those happen to seek help right away. You can find a link to their support page right here: https://wi-problemgamblers.org/
