Big Superbowl Odds

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

Superbowl odds can make a break the entire football season for gamblers and sportsbooks

As you get involved in Superbowl betting there are a few things you might want to keep in mind.  Let’s look at a few of those as we get ready to bet this year’s Superbowl odds.

Superbowl odds favorites are popular and they are also slightly profitable in Superbowl betting history.  The favorites are just over .500 in Superbowl odds.  The same thing applies to the NFC in Superbowl odds as they are just over .500 against the NFC.  Looking at the totals in Superbowl odds we find that the last four games have all gone under but since 1982 the over is still slightly above .500 in Superbowl betting.

Many gamblers are going to look to the favorite and the over in Superbowl odds although that did not happen last year when the public bet the underdog New York Giants in Superbowl odds.

As you consider Superbowl odds you also want to remember a few other trends that are tougher to predict.  Those are first downs, rushing yardage and field goals.  Obviously, those can be tough to predict beforehand but they do a good job of forecasting the Superbowl betting winner.  The team that has the most rushing attempts almost always wins in the Super Bowl.  The team that gets the most first downs is not quite as clear cut.  It is about .500 the past decade or so.  The team with the most field goals usually wins the games.  That statistic almost always points to a winner in Superbowl odds.

If you think you can pick the winner of this year’s Super Bowl your chances of winning your bet is very good.  The Super Bowl winning team also covers the spread most of the time. It happened again last season as the New York Giants won outright as 12 point underdogs against the New England Patriots.

Betting Superbowl odds based on trends is risky.  While there are some interesting numbers to consider nothing is guaranteed when it comes to the Super Bowl. Open a New Account and bet on the Super Bowl XLIII at SBG Global!
