After a long regular season and an intense Playoff schedule, only the two best NFL teams in America will reach the Super Bowl each year.

In 2021, we have the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers heading to Raymond James Stadium for Super Bowl 55. However, the coveted event boasts an illustrious history dating back to 1967. The Green Bay Packers were led to victory in Super Bowl I & II by Coach Vince Lombardi, and in honour of those historic wins, the Super Bowl trophy is named after him.

Betting on the Super Bowl

With so many available markets, betting on the Super Bowl can be as simple or complex as you like. The most popular is a simple prediction on which team will win, but it's also possible to bet on things such as the final score, the total number of points, and many different prop bets (these are discussed in detail further down this page).

According to the American Gaming Association, Americans bet nearly $5 billion on the Super Bowl alone. More states have started to offer legal sports betting since they came up with this figure though, so the actual amount wagered on Super Bowl 2021 is likely to be even more.

Super Bowl Betting Tips

1
Chiefs Win Super Bowl

They did it last year and they'll do it again; we're picking the Kansas City Chiefs to successfully defend the Super Bowl in style. The Chiefs' offensive line is just too dynamic, too quick and will show the world why it's so feared.

2
Over 56.5 Points

With the offensive prowess of both teams, this will be an action-packed Super Bowl. The consensus is that if Tampa are to put up a challenge, they'll have to be firing on all cylinders and score 30+ points; a challenge Tom Brady will relish. We're going for the game to surpass the 56.5 over/under set by bookmakers.

3
Travis Kelce First TD

Travis Kelce is the Chiefs' most important player behind Patrick Mahomes. In fact, he must be Mahomes' best friend, being a constant outlet for the young quarterback. He's having as good a season as you can have for a tight end and we think Mahomes will avoid the Bucs' early pass rush and find Kelce in a pocket to kick things off on Sunday.

If you have a good understanding of the game, bet in-play. This will allow you to get a good feeling for the game, and you can then use your knowledge and intuition to make accurate bets on what will happen next.

The Super Bowl can be an emotional affair, especially if your team is playing. Don't let your heart rule your head though, and instead make bets based on facts and knowledge, even if that means betting against your team.

Remember that many sports betting websites will offer fantastic promotions for Super Bowl, such as free bets and enhanced odds. You should search for these before placing your bets on the game.

Super Bowl Prop Bets

Prop bets are extremely popular with those betting on the Super Bowl, bringing an extra level of entertainment to the match, while also leading to huge payouts.

While many will place prop bets before the Super Bowl, with such a great range of markets open for the event, placing live prop bets is also huge part of Super Bowl betting. Here are some of the most popular prop bets you can make on the Super Bowl.

What is a Prop Bet?

Prop bets are individual bets on specific events surrounding the game, which do not directly affect the result.

  • Super Bowl MVP
    One of the most popular prop bets is on which player will be awarded the title of Super Bowl's Most Valuable Player. Those looking to play it safe should pick a quarterback, although correctly predicting a player from a different position can lead to a nice payout.
  • Leading Rusher
    This is easy, as you simply have to predict which player will rush for the highest number of yards throughout the game. This is an especially fun bet if both teams are known for their ground game. Will the star running back come through, or will a new name shine on the biggest stage of them all?
  • Number of Touchdowns
    This bet doesn't need explaining, as you simply have to bet on how many touchdowns will be scored throughout the game. Some will prefer to bet over or under a set number, while more adventurous gamblers will instead bet on the exact number of touchdowns.
  • Return of Next Play
    This is one for those who like to bet in-play. You'll need to read the game and decide what the result of the next play will be. Will they manage to punch the ball into the end zone, or will they end up punting the ball back down the pitch? These bets are resolved quickly, so you can keep making them for the whole game.
  • Coin Toss
    While betting on the coin toss might sound pretty mundane, many love to start off their night of betting by predicting whether it will be heads or tails. As you can probably work out, you've got a 50/50 chance of being right. Some sites instead offer odds on the team that will win the coin toss.
  • QB to Throw an Interception
    Before a game, why not have a bet on how many passing yards will be thrown by a quarterback? This can be as an over/under bet, or you try to be exact with the figure. It's also often possible to bet on the combined number of yards thrown by all QBs in the game.
  • Total Passing Yards
    With this bet, you'll simply be betting on whether a quarterback will throw an interception during the game. Most will throw at least one, so the riskier bet is on none being thrown. You could also bet live on whether the current play will end with an interception.
  • Retirement After Game
    Super Bowl is often the final game for a player, as they bid to go out on a high. You can bet on whether a certain player will retire, and the odds can be good if you manage to predict a retirement nobody else saw coming. Remember that players keep playing for much longer nowadays though – just look at Tom Brady!
  • Color of Gatorade
    In a Super Bowl tradition, the coach of the winning team is usually covered in Gatorade at the end of the match. Gatorade afficionados will know that the drink comes in many different colors though, so what will the color of the Gatorade poured over the coach be?
  • Half Time Show
    The half time show is usually one of the highlights of the Super Bowl. Many people bet on this event, and perhaps the most popular bet is whether an act will perform a certain track. It's often possible to also find some really obscure markets when looking to bet on the half time performance.
