The Super Bowl has become the marquee event of the year and is the biggest wagering game of the year. As you look to bet on Super Bowl action there are some trends you want to be aware of. Let’s take a look at some Super Bowl betting trends.
Bet on Super Bowl numbers show that the favorite is 21-18-3 in the last 42 Super Bowls. That is a slight profit if you wagered on every single favorite with your bet on Super Bowl wagers. The over was a big success for gamblers that bet on Super Bowl games until recently. The last four Super Bowls have now gone under the bet on Super Bowl total. You can probably pick up which way most people go in Super Bowl betting based on these numbers. Yes, favorites and overs. The public loves the favorite and over anyway and the Super Bowl just magnifies this fact. That makes for a dangerous situation for the sportsbooks if both the favorite and the over win in Super Bowl betting.
Another trend to remember is that the straight up winner of the Super Bowl almost always covers the spread. That means if you are betting the underdog in the Super Bowl you should really bet the money line instead because if the dog covers they usually win the game outright for gamblers that bet on Super Bowl lines. There are some other trends that make sense with a bet on Super Bowl wager but are hard to predict like rushing attempts, most field goals, fewest turnovers, etc. Teams that win these categories usually win the game, but that is the case in most games.
As you look to bet on Super Bowl odds it is interesting to look at trends but they are not the overriding factor of any game. Very often handicappers will get bogged down by trends and not look past them when they bet on Super Bowl odds. The Super Bowl is an event all unto itself and must be handicapped as such. Just because a trend has worked in the past does not mean it will work every time. Looking at favorites, overs, and the underdog on the money line are definitely Super Bowl betting trends worth considering. Other than those three trends there is little else that has withstood the test of time that would be worth a bet on Super Bowl wager.
