Bettors will also have access to plenty of prop bets on the game, including individual player props and game-specific props.
Super Bowl Game Lines
The moneyline is the simplest bet. Odds are set based on a team’s perceived likelihood of winning the game. You bet on who you think will win, with less favorable payouts for favorites and more favorable for underdogs.
Point spreads identify the most likely margin of victory for the favored team. For example, if the Carolina Panthers are expected to beat the Atlanta Falcons by more than a field goal, the spread would look like this:
- Carolina Panthers (-3.5)
- Atlanta Falcons (+3.5)
In this example, your bet would payout if the Panthers won by four or more points and lose if they lost the game outright or failed to win by more than three points.
Point totals are only concerned with the total points scored between the two sides. Bettors can bet the over if they believe the teams will score more than the set total or the under if they believe the teams won't reach the total.
The line might look something like this:
- Over 49.5
- Under 49.5
Prop bets are side wagers about events you think will occur during a game. They usually don't correlate to the overall outcome. You can make a prop bet for individual players or specific game events.
Player props might include:
- Patrick Mahomes over 200 passing yards
- Travis Kelce over 70.5 receiving yards
Game props might include:
- Eagles to score first
- Chiefs to record over 1.5 sacks
