What is the Super Bowl?

The Super Bowl is the NFL’s championship game and one of the biggest events in sport – a single game that crowns the best football team in the world. Over $10 billion is wagered on the event annually – according to the American Gaming Association, over $6.8 billion of that is bet by Americans alone – with NFL betting sites offering the usual NFL spreads and totals, but also some of the most diverse NFL prop bets imaginable.

The Super Bowl brings out the bettor in everyone. We can wager on the length of the national anthem, the color of the Gatorade dumped on the winning coach, and, of course, the game itself, which features the top team from each NFL division.

Reigning Champions

Logo Football NFL tb

Super Bowl LV Winners

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat reigning champions the Kansas City Chiefs, dominating the game from start to finish. Quarterback Tom Brady rolled back the years in the 31-9 win to secure his seventh Super Bowl – not just the most of any player, but more than any NFL franchise. Most online NFL sportsbooks had the Chiefs as -3 heading into the championship game, but the Bucs more than covered the spread and then some.

Super Bowl LV MVP

Tom Brady

Having won six Super Bowl titles, including four Super Bowl MVPs, during his time in New England, this was Brady’s first award with the Bucs. The 43-year-old threw for 201 yards and three touchdowns, doing most of his work in the first-half to put his side practically out of sight by half-time.

2021 AFC Winner

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs won their second AFC title in as many years, beating the Buffalo Bills at Arrowhead Stadium 38-24. Having finished with a 14-2 record in the regular season, the Chiefs blew the Bills away in the middle half hour of the game, wining the second and third quarters 31-6. Patrick Mahomes threw for 325 yards and three touchdowns, with Tyreek Hill (172) and Travis Kelce (118) both going for 100+ yards receiving.

2021 NFC Winner

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Led by the evergreen Tom Brady, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat Aaron Rodgers’ Packers in Green Bay to claim the NFC title. The 43-year-old QB threw deep early and often to give Tampa a two-score lead that the Packers could never overcome, taking the Bucs to just their second Super Bowl appearance in franchise history, and their first in 18 years.

Previous Winner Football Super Bowl MVP

2021 Regular Season MVP

Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers finished the regular season with 48 touchdowns, completing 70.7 percent of his passes, leading the league in both categories. It was the 37-year-old’s third MVP award, tying him with four other players in the all-time list. Only Peyton Manning, on five, has more.

NFL: Most Popular Markets

Picking the Super Bowl champion is one of the most popular future bets available. Nearly all NFL betting sites offer this market throughout the entirety of the NFL season, and even before future NFL schedules are announced, with odds constantly shifting as games are played.

Betting it early gives the best odds and with each team starting with the same record at the beginning of the year, taking non-favorites can be appetizing.

While the Kansas City Chiefs went into the season as favorites, at +500, we could have got +1200 on the eventual champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That number even drifted out mid-season, also.

Those are still great NFL odds that even new bettors learning how to bet NFL games can take advantage of.

NFL Bets Explained

Moneyline

Betting the moneyline is the simplest of all football betting picks – just pick the winning team. Sometimes referred to as ML, the moneyline will have two sets of odds – one for each team. With ties being very rare in American football, the moneyline is a two-way market which means you only have two choices, a winning outcome and a losing outcome.

Live Betting on the NFL

If we missed the start of a game and didn’t get a chance to get our bets in, there’s no need to worry. NFL in-game betting can be found on a majority of online NFL sportsbooks and lets us place wagers after the game has already begun.

Outside of spreads and totals, many derivative and prop markets are usually available to customers with the NFL lines and odds changing as the game goes on.

For example, if the Pittsburgh Steelers were -10.5 favorites before the game and were losing 14-3 after the first quarter, we might think of placing an in-game bet on the Steelers with the new live line of -3.5.

NFL Betting Tips

Beating the books is no easy task. Any advantage a bettor can have over the book is valuable and could mean the difference between being in the red or the black.

Getting certain perks, such as odds boosters or early payouts help put the odds slightly more in our favor. Every little bit helps and familiarizing ourselves with these promotion offerings is just one more tool we can use to help us win.

Many online NFL sportsbooks offer great sign-up bonuses and lure us with a plethora of promotions. Because of this, choosing a sportsbook can be intimidating, but researching and understanding the rules for these promotions can go a long way in helping us gain any advantages versus NFL sportsbooks.

NFL Betting Promotions

Parlay Insurance

Some NFL books offer bettors protection with multiple-leg parlays called parlay insurance. Let's say we make a five-game parlay and four of the five win, parlay insurance will pay us our original wager back when most books would deem that bet a loser.

Odds Boosts

Newer sportsbooks often offer a promotion called odds boosts. The book will offer better (boosted) odds on certain wagers that move the odds into the favor of the customer. These could include spreads, totals, moneylines, and prop markets. Some books allow customers to use the boost for bets of their choice while others offer only specific plays for the boost.

Sign-up Bonuses

When signing up for a new NFL online sportsbook, it’s important to shop around for sign-up bonuses. Some books will match customers’ first-time deposits up to a certain amount. Players will sometimes have to bet that bonus a certain number of times (called a rollover) before the money can be withdrawn.

Early Payouts

Sometimes we bettors don’t have to sweat through an entire game before winning our bets. Early payouts are a great promotion that turns our bet into a winner if our team is winning by a certain margin, before a game is even over. If we bet on the Dallas Cowboys to win the game (moneyline) and they jump out to a 17-point lead (or whatever the book’s set number for this promotion is) we will be paid for that bet regardless of the final outcome.
