How to Bet on the Super Bowl in New Jersey
Sports betting in New Jersey has been legal since July 2018, making the state a pioneer and leader in the world of online sports betting in the US. It should come as no surprise that many in the state will be locked into Super Bowl betting odds.
Super Bowl LVII will be the most bet-on event of the year, presenting an excellent opportunity for sports bettors in Garden State to win big.
Here is a closer look at Super Bowl betting in New Jersey.
Super Bowl Betting Odds
History of the Jets and Giants in the Super Bowl
Even though both the Jets and Giants are branded as New York teams, they share a stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Both teams have large fan bases throughout the Garden State with rich traditions and histories.
When it comes to Super Bowl glory, the Giants have enjoyed more success. They claimed Super Bowl crowns in 1986, 1990, 2007, and 2011. They also appeared in the big game in 2000 going down in defeat against the Baltimore Ravens. The Giants were involved in one of the more infamous moments in Super Bowl history, the David Tyree helmet catch which helped lead a monumental upset of the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.
The Jets have had far less success but were involved in their own iconic Super Bowl moment. Their sole Super Bowl win came in 1969, led by a brash Joe Namath, who guaranteed an upset win prior to the game and then delivered.
Super Bowl Betting Lines
Super Bowl betting in New Jersey presents customers with a ton of options to consider.
The most common Super Bowl bets are:
- Moneylines (team to win)
- Spreads (team to cover)
- Totals (combined number of points scored)
Moneylines are the most straightforward as you are just picking which team you think will win. Spreads and totals involve picking against a betting line.
If you bet on the Giants (-2.5), they need to win by a field goal or more for your bet to win.
If you bet the over in the Jets/Dolphins game at 46.5, the two teams would need to combine for at least 47 points.
Super Bowl Props
Customers will also have access to dozens of prop bets, including
- Player props
- Game props
- Novelty props
Player props are bets on individual milestones, (i.e, Daniel Jones over 200 passing yards). Game props relate to events you think will occur during a game (i.e, New York Jets to score first).
Novelty props have nothing to do with the game but instead focus on the spectacle surrounding it (i.e The length of the National Anthem).
