What Can I bet on During the Super Bowl?
Super Bowl betting offers the most odds you will see for a single event all year. While you will find traditional spreads, moneylines, and point totals, you will also have access to a litany of prop bets.
Online betting also makes it easy to participate in live betting, meaning you can continue to bet on the action even after kick-off with up-to-the-second odds.
What Does Plus and Minus Mean in Super Bowl Betting?
When you see a minus sign in front of the odds, it means it is a favored outcome, whereas when you see a plus sign, it is a less likely outcome.
Betting odds are always calculated out of 100, meaning if you see +200, it means a $100 bet would correlate to $200 in profit for a win. At -200, a $100 bet would return $50 in net profit.
What is a Super Bowl Prop Bet?
A prop bet is a side wager on a game that isn't necessarily correlated to the overall outcome. When it comes to betting on the Super Bowl, you will find three different types of props:
Game/Team Props: A bet on something you believe will occur during the game. For example,
- Chiefs to score first
- Eagles to win the 1st half
- Result of the first drive (TD, FG, Punt)
Player props: Wagers made on individual player performances.
- Patrick Mahomes over 1.5 touchdown pass
- A.J Brown over 70.5 receiving yards
- Travis Kelce anytime TD
Novelty/Exotic props: These are bets that often have nothing to do with on-field action but rather events surrounding the game. Popular examples include
- Result of the coin toss
- Length of the national anthem
- Color of the Gatorade poured over the winning coach
Who Won the Super Bowl Last Year?
The Los Angles Rams won Super Bowl LVI defeating the Cincinnati Bengals by the final score of 23-20. The game was unique from a betting standpoint in that the Rams were the first team to win the game while failing to cover the spread (-4) since the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2009.
