The Super Bowl is perhaps the most watched single sporting event world wide every year. Regularly attracting over 100+ million viewers annually, mega corporations are willing to sink big money into advertising but they aren’t the only ones with big money riding on the event. Any sporting event that draws this much attention attracts mass wagering and the Super Bowl is no exception.
In fact, sportsbooks in Nevada alone take in over $90 million in bets on the Super Bowl annually, and those numbers are even higher overseas where sports betting is marketed to the masses. No other event draws the sheer number of betting lines than the Super Bowl does every year.
From bets on the game itself (before, during, after), to the crazy, wacky proposition bets, there is no detail surrounding the Super Bowl that doesn’t have a betting line. Read more below to find the latest odds to win this year’s Super Bowl and about the other ways to wager on it.

Great value can be found in betting on Super Bowl futures. With some research, you might be able to predict the next Super Bowl champion darkhorse and get 40 to 1 odds!

Super Bowl Prop Bets
After the conference championships the Super Bowl proposition bets or Super Bowl props start rolling out. These are really fun because they can be about anything. Included are silly bets like the coin toss, the color of the Gatorade shower on the winning coach, length of the National Anthem, how many times an announcer says a certain word during the broadcast, and other wacky things that have nothing to do with football. Super Bowl prop betting lines on wagers just like these are where the majority of the wagers on the game comes from in the two weeks leading up to the event.
Other types of Super Bowl proposition lines include player props & team props. This is simply betting on the performance of an individual player or team in very specific statistical categories. Quick examples of these bets are things like the over/under for the amount of time left on the clock when the last scoring play occurs, total yards for each team, which team will score first, team with most first downs, and the list goes on and on. For more information about Super Bowl player props and team props, check out the NFL betting odds page for complete examples.
Betting The Super Bowl Spread & Other Straight Bets
Betting on the spread of the Super Bowl is the most common way to bet on the event, and perhaps the most wise. Straight bets on the Super Bowl most likely account for the majority of the money wagered on the game as most proposition bets have low betting limits. It is not uncommon for a single bettor to have thousands wagered on a single half, let alone the entire game. As soon as the Super Bowl matchup is known, oddsmakers go right to formulate odds and sportsbooks compete to have the first Super Bowl lines available. For those not in the know about the spread, check out our NFL betting odds page for examples.There are different spreads for the Super Bowl that include the spread for the entire game, the first half alone, the second half alone, and each individual quarter. Do know that second half, as well as second, third, and fourth quarter spreads are only available between the halves, and respective quarters.

Just like the spread bets, second half, and quarters after the first are only available between the halves and respective quarters. If you need more information about what over/unders and moneyline wagers are, please consult the NFL betting odds page for clear examples.
Live Betting On The Super Bowl
For those who like instant gratification, “Live Betting” on the Super Bowl is the way to go. At any point during the game, but mostly between plays, several live betting options will become available. These include things like run or pass on the next play, over/under yards gained on the next play, will the team with the ball score on this possession, etc… This is done through a live betting application and the odds literally appear and disappear in a matter of a few seconds. The action is extremely fast paced and is very exhilarating. Las Vegas does not offer betting like this but you can find it at the best online sports betting sites like Bovada.

During Super Bowl commercial breaks, sports betting sites like Bovada will offer an adjusted game spread depending on what has already happened in the game. This can be really profitable and just as rewarding as any other bet you can make on the Super Bowl.
