Super Bowl Sunday is the sports betting world’s biggest day, regardless of which teams are competing for the Lombardi Trophy. While the Super Bowl is only one game, the number of betting options available is beyond comprehension, ranging from the simple point spread to exotic props. You can even bet other sports events that day against the stats or results of the football game. If you’ve never taken the time to digest all the betting opportunities available on game day, be sure to do so. At the very least, you will be amazed by the creativity of the oddsmaking minds.

This year’s Super Bowl will be the 55th in history. With a sample size of 54 previous games, you’ll want to consider those results as you contemplate how this year’s game might play out, checking for similarities between this year’s matchup and past games. How can you know where you’re going if you don’t understand where you’ve been? 

I’ll share some trends and patterns that have emerged from the Super Bowl over the years. Perhaps these will strongly influence your final decisions, perhaps not. Either way, you’ll be more knowledgeable about the game’s betting history than the friends you’re gathering with.
