Super Bowl LVII Odds
History of the Eagles and Steelers in the Super Bowl
Pennsylvania is home to two iconic franchises in the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers. Both have rich traditions and some Super Bowl experience.
The Steelers rank among the most successful NFL franchises. They have appeared in the Super Bowl eight times, hoisting the trophy an impressive six times (1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, 2005, 2008).
The Eagles have also enjoyed success over the years, appearing in the big game on three occasions. They captured their lone Super Bowl title in 2017, defeating the New England Patriots. They will be competing for their second crown in Super Bowl LVII.
Super Bowl Betting Lines
Bettors can make an array of different bets when betting on the Super Bowl in Pennsylvania. They’ll have access to all the same betting lines typically found at NFL games but a whole slew of new betting options as well.
The most common NFL bets are on moneylines, spreads, and totals. All betting sites will offer these odds for every game. However, a big part of Super Bowl betting is the massive array of prop bets.
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 Eagles to win).
Point spreads are similar – sportsbooks start by identifying the margin of victory for the favored team they believe has the highest chance of occurring. (i.e. PHI -4.0). For the favorite to cover the spread, they need to win by a larger margin than the set line.
Point totals distinguish themselves from moneylines and spreads in that they’re only concerned with the total points the two teams combine to score. If you expect a lot of offense back the over. If you think it will be more of a defensive grind back the under.
Prop bets are side bets on the game that aren't correlated to the overall outcome. They usually tie into whether individual players or teams hit specific milestones during the game. Bettors can find odds and bet on
- Over/unders on passing yards, rushing yards, receiving yards
- Odds of a specific player scoring a touchdown
- Which team will score first/last
The Super Bowl lends itself to several props that aren’t available for any other NFL game. Many have little to do with the game itself. Popular novelty props include:
- The coin toss (heads or tails)
- Length of the National Anthem
- The color of the Gatorade poured on the winning coach
