With so many of us glued to our televisions on Super Bowl Sunday, the idea of NOT placing a little wager creates a sense of extreme FOMO or fear of missing out. Just remember, betting on the Super Bowl is suppose to be a fun source of entertainment. Here are some helpful tips to consider before placing your Super Bowl bet this February.
Non-Game Prop Bets
Typically a Super Bowl features two, somewhat evenly matched teams, right? So, if you’re looking to avoid making an educated bet on the point spread, moneyline or point total before the game, stay focused on the non-game / entertainment prop bets. These include the outcome of the opening coin toss, what product the first commercial will be promoting, certain phrases Jim Nantz and Tony Romo might say while calling the game, halftime show wardrobe malfunctions and who the Super Bowl MVP thanks first after the game. These prop bets are perfect for the casual Super Bowl bettors.
LIVE betting a sporting event is great because you get a better feel of the game flow after it’s started. Our recommended online sportsbooks will offer LIVE betting during Super Bowl 55. So, if the underdog jumps ahead in the first quarter and you still like the favorite to rally back to win, LIVE betting allows you to place a wager at a cheaper price after the game has started. LIVE odds change frequently so you have to be quick with your betting trigger finger.
Player Prop Bets
Who will score the game’s first touchdown, how many receptions will the top receiver have at game’s end and will a kicker connect on more than 3 field goals in Super Bowl 55 are all examples of player props you should look into. Also, because this game will be played in Tampa Bay, always be cognizant of the weather forecast because that could impact some of your player prop bets, too.
If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a million times: bet within your means and that goes for the Super Bowl, too. It’s wise to set aside a pool of money you plan on wagering on the NFL championship game before opening kickoff. If you run out, don’t worry the next NFL season and Super Bowl will be here before you know it.
