Superbowl odds begin with the pointspread. In Super Bowl XLIII the Pittsburgh Steelers are 7-point favorites against the Arizona Cardinals. You would either take the favorite and lay the points, (Pittsburgh -7) or take the underdog with the plus points, (Arizona +7).
Another common Superbowl odds option that continues to gain in popularity is over/under betting, also known as “totals.” To bet an over under you would wager on whether or not the combined score in the Super Bowl (46.5) would go over or under in Superbowl odds. Bettors would either take this matchup over or under the Superbowl odds total of 46.5.
Another Superbowl odds choice is the money line, which is how baseball and hockey are bet normally. Instead of a pointspread a gambler would simply either take the favorite, (Pittsburgh -$240 to win $100), or the underdog, (Arizona +200 on $100 wagered).
The appeal of the money line is that there is no pointspread and all the gambler has to do is pick the straight up winner in Superbowl betting. Parlays and teasers are also available as different ways to mix things up with Superbowl odds as are individual quarter wagers and the popular halftime bet in Superbowl odds.
