History of the Coin Toss

Just like the board on a Roulette wheel, the result of previous years has nothing to do with this year. But it’s still fun to look at.

The popular expression “Tails never fails” has wrung hollow in recent years, with Heads cashing in four of the last five tosses. Will the trend continue in Super Bowl LVII?
