Super-Bowl Odds & Television

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

Super Bowl odds definitely increase the popularity of the Super Bowl on television.

Usually the Super Bowl is the most watched television program of the year in the United States. It has been estimated that millions of people get involved in Super Bowl betting each year and more than half of them have some sort of wager on the game.

Super Bowl odds history indicates that the highest-rated Super Bowl was back in 1982 as the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl XVI. It is estimated that 49.1 percent of the households in the U.S. were watching the game. It is the fourth highest watched TV program of all-time. Last year’s Super Bowl has the record of most viewers in the U.S., estimated at 97.5 million people. It ranks second only to the final episode of M*A*S*H in 1983.

As you look at Super Bowl odds this season you may want to know that 25 of the 42 previous games were played in one of three areas, Miami area, New Orleans, Los Angeles area. Other popular sites, as Super Bowl odds records show, have been Tampa and San Diego. Super Bowl XLIII will be held in Tampa as Super Bowl odds information tells us. Next year’s game will be in Miami as Super Bowl odds info illustrates while Arlington, Texas has the 2011 game and Indianapolis the 2012 game. Super Bowl betting history demonstrates that only twice has a team played in their home area. The San Francisco 49ers played Super Bowl XIX in Stanford Stadium while the Los Angeles Rams played Super Bowl XIV in the Rose Bowl. Only three times has Super Bowl betting been hosted in northern cities. Detroit and Minneapolis have hosted Super Bowls as Super Bowl odds records show. Considering the cold weather effect on fans, even though the game is played indoors, it is unlikely many cold weather cities will get future games.

Super Bowl odds history shows that never has a Super Bowl gone to overtime but there have been three games tied in the final minute. There has never been a shutout in any of Super Bowl odds since its inception. Previous Super Bowl odds tell us that no game has ever been scoreless at the half. Heading into Super Bowl odds for 2009 there have been six teams that have never played in the game, the Arizona Cardinals, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints and Jacksonville Jaguars. No team has ever won more than two straight Super Bowls as Super Bowl betting history tells us.
