What trends can be helpful as you consider Super Bowl odds?
Super Bowl odds can be looked at from a variety of angles. Here are some trends you can consider. The favorite is just barely over .500 versus the Super Bowl odds. The favorite is 21-19-3 in the last 43 Super Bowls. That is a slight profit but just barely. Betting the game over in Super Bowl betting has also been slightly profitable although four of the last five games have gone under the total. Last year it was Arizona covering the Super Bowl odds while the game went over the total.
Normally in Super Bowl odds the winner covers the pointspread. Having said that, Pittsburgh didn’t do it last year against Arizona as they won the game by four points and didn’t cover the Super Bowl odds. The previous three winners had covered the spread when they won the game. One of those winners, the New York Giants was a big underdog and they paid very well on the money line in their win over New England. Gamblers have noticed this trend as well as they usually take the underdog on the money line when betting the Super Bowl. Keep in mind though that it didn’t work out last year when Arizona covered the pointspread but lost the game outright.
As you consider Super Bowl odds there are other trends to consider. Usually when a team has the most rushing attempts, fewest turnovers, most field goals, etc. they win the game. Sometimes these trends are tough to predict in Super Bowl betting.
Trends are important to consider in the Super Bowl but they are not the only factor. You also need to consider other things as well in the Super Bowl. That includes line value, fundamental matchups and even additional Super Bowl betting options like quarter bets, halftime, props, etc. Even though the favorite and the over have been popular, those bets don’t always win. You can look at Super Bowl odds trends when you bet on the big game but don’t become overwhelmed by them or put too much stock in them or you might get carried away.
