Betting on the Super Bowl is most known for its vast number of proposition bets, ranging from the length of the National Anthem to the color of the Gatorade poured on the winning coach. But don’t get so caught up in the hype that you forget the old stand-by bets that have been getting you through the regular season.
There is, of course, still the money line, the most basic of bets. Point spread bets are the bread and butter of NFL betting. And totals bets, where you pick over or under the points scored by both teams combined.
It’s that last type of “regular” bet that we’re focusing on here. Let’s right to it so you can bet on the Super Bowl Betting Lines.
How To Bet The Over/Under Total for the Super Bowl 57
Regular Season vs Postseason
Of course, paying attention to how a team does against the totals line in the regular season is important. It’s the foundation of the research you do for your Super Bowl wager. But you definitely need to put an emphasis on the playoffs. The teams are better, and there are fewer mistakes made on the field and far easy touchdowns.
Just look at the playoffs following this past season. All four Divisional Round games finished under the totals line, as did both Conference Championship Games. As the competition got tougher, the points were harder to come by.
Overall this season, the under was 7-5 leading up to the Super Bowl, which is exactly what happened in the 2021 playoffs.
Know the History
Each of the last four Super Bowls has gone under the totals line, with Super Bowl LIII being the worst offender, finishing under by a whopping 39.5 points. Before this current run of four straight unders, the over won twice in a row, but in Super Bowl LI, the only reason the over hit was because the game went to overtime.
Over the last 18 Super Bowls, beginning with Super Bowl XXXIX – the Patriots over the Eagles – the under is 11-7.
Even the most experienced players can experience Super Bowl jitters, and early in games, that affects offensive execution more than anything else. Plus, the betting public loves scoring, and they want to root for the offenses, which can artificially push the line higher.
Know the Bets
The most basic of the totals bets is the end-of-the-game wager. The winner of the game doesn’t matter, and overtime will be added to the final total. It is not a four-quarter bet; it’s the final score. So bet on that accordingly.
But you can also bet on the over/under for each quarter, as well as at halftime. Then, after the quarter is half over, bet on the next quarter and half on the new line.
When you place a wager on the totals line of the second half, it will include any overtime unless it explicitly states otherwise. A first-half totals bet ends at halftime, and a second-half totals bet ends at the conclusion of the game. So again, before placing those bets, know your sportsbook’s rules and bet accordingly.
