Bettors can make several different unique bets on the Super Bowl, but they’ll also find the same betting lines typically found at NFL games. Moneylines, spreads, and totals are the most common, but bettors will also find props on the game, players, teams, and same-game parlays involving combinations of them.
The most common NFL bets are on moneylines, spreads, and totals.
The moneyline is the most straightforward – odds are set based on a team’s perceived likelihood of winning the game outright, and the bet wins if the team the bet is made upon wins the game. (I.e, You just bet on the Bills to win).
Point spreads are slightly different. While the odds are more even, one team starts with a handicap. Sportsbooks identify the margin of victory they expect for the favored team (for instance, Giants -5.5. This means oddsmakers expect the Giants to win the game by six or more points.
Point totals distinguish themselves from moneylines and point spreads in that they’re only concerned with the total points the two teams combine to score (i.e, O/U 45). If you expect to see a fair amount of scoring in the game, you would take the over. If you think it will be more of a defensive grind, consider the under.
Prop bets are simple but more specific than game lines, usually concerning whether individual players or teams hit particular milestones during the game. Bettors can find odds and bet on whether a quarterback will throw for over a certain number of yards, whether an offense will gain over a certain number of total yards, which team will score first or last, which individual player(s) will score a touchdown, and several other similar props.
The Super Bowl allows for props on several production elements and other such things not present at every NFL game. Bettors won’t have to look hard to find odds on the length of the national anthem, the color of the Gatorade bath for the winning coach, or other such events around the game.
Online betting on the Super Bowl from anywhere in New York is simple. Bettors just need to sign up and log into their sportsbook app of choice.
Many online sportsbooks offer incentives for first-time bettors, including free bets upfront or as a consolation prize for first bets that don’t hit.
First-time bettors for the Super Bowl should know that they’ll need to share proof of identity and location – sportsbooks need to verify that bettors are in a legal betting area and aren’t prohibited from using their service – and that withdrawals may take several days to process whereas deposits typically go through very quickly.
