As the pinnacle of football, the Super Bowl sets the stage for not only epic battles on the gridiron (and a halftime show that sets the entertainment world ablaze), but is also the cornerstone of sports betting around the world. A study of the Super Bowl betting odds history is nearly as vivid and colorful as the games themselves. Betting on the NFL’s greatest Sunday matchup requires skill and a basic knowledge of sports wagering. We’ve compiled the scores, ATS and OVER/UNDER results of each Super Bowl to date to help you handicap your bets.

Check out the Super Bowl betting odds history below for a better idea on how the big game usually plays out.

Understanding Super Bowl Point Spread & Totals

The Super Bowl point spread is a handicap applied to create a more balanced betting field. For instance, prior to Super Bowl LVII, the Philadelphia Eagles needed to win by two points or more to cover the spread. On the flip side, the Kansas City Chiefs simply needed to lose by less than two points, or win outright to cover.

For OVER/UNDER bets, a total point threshold is set, such as the 50 total point mark for Super Bowl LVII. Bettors than predict whether the combined score of both teams will be OVER or UNDER this number. Super Bowl LVII blew past the 50-point mark to finish with a score of 38-35, delighting OVER bettors around the world.

Super Bowl History For Spread And Totals Betting

Historical data shows that Super Bowl winners almost always cover the spread. A comprehensive look at past winners reveals this trend to be a constant, as the eventual winner has covered the spread in nine of the last ten games, and 17 of the past 20. In fact, only seven total Super Bowl victors have failed to cover the spread.

Now that their 24-year dynasty has officially come to an end, New England Patriots fans can rejoice at the fact that they hold the record for most Super Bowl appearances with 11. The Pittsburgh Steelers are next on the list with eight Super Bowl appearances. Remarkably, the Patriots have covered the spread in seven of their trips to the big game.

Underdogs have performed remarkably well in recent years, covering the spread in 15 of the last 23 Super Bowls, including last season when Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs pulled off a slight upset over the Eagles. Although, favorites are an impressive 36-21 SU and 29-26-2 ATS.
