The Super Bowl is, more than likely, the most active betting day of the year. One could say that is a safe bet at the very least. Even people who do not typically place bets on things get in on the action. It is a fun way to do something that, once upon a time, was thought of as an activity practiced only by unsavory characters. But these days, it is simply a fun activity to help make watching the big game a little more fun.
Now, placing bets on this day can mean more than just looking at the Super Bowl odds and then going with who you think will win. You can bet on how many first downs or 4th down conversions a team will get during the game…..or during a half…….or during any given quarter. You can bet on whether a player who is questionable due to being on the IR list will play or not. Or for how long. Or during which quarter. You can bet on the coin toss. You get the picture. These are football odds and what you bet on during the game is only limited by your imagination. Covers.com is a very good place to this.
Focusing on the game itself specifically and football odds in general, there are a few things you should consider. Some people go by the statistics for each team. The biggest one being the points allowed by a defense and the points scored by an offense. Also, each team in the Super Bowl represents their division, the AFC and the NFC. Some people go by how well each team played against other teams during the regular season (and especially the post season) in the opposing division. Tactics like these are called by some as playing the NFL odds, and this is the type of betting that happens the most among fans. Aside from that, “covering the spread” is the most popular betting option offered by betting companies (Once upon a time called “bookies”). This is basically betting on the margin of victory and it is offered to help even out the books in the chance that one team is more heavily favored, therefore bet on to win, than the other.
