Bet on Super Bowl LII at Sports Interaction

Game Total betting requires proper research and a "feel" for how handicappers think the contest will play out. While billed as the top AFC squad squaring off against the best NFC team, there has been a mix of blowouts and tight fights during the first 51 Super Bowl matches. Lopsided and close contests are reflected in the Over/Under wagering results as both options have cashed fairly evenly. 

Split 23-23 down the middle, after UNDER cashed during the Patriots vs Giants SB 46 meeting in 2012, the OVER has moved ahead recently and now claim a slim 27-24 all-time advantage. It is surprising that the Super Bowl final score has never resulted in an O/U PUSH. The possibility has been there as 37 SB matches have been posted with a line that did not include a half point hook.

According to our carefully cultivated numbers; 44.17 was the average NFL Championship Game Total during the first 51 matches. New England vs Atlanta (SB 51) and Indianapolis vs New Orleans (SB 44) have sported the highest Super Bowl O/U line (57 PTS) while four matches (SB 7, 8, 9, 35) share the lowest (33 PTS) Game Total number. OVER has cashed six times during the past decade.

Game Total Recent Trends: UNDER is 3-2 all-time on the current average 48 Over/Under line.

Update: Most books are 48.5 now - That price has never been a Super Bowl O/U (03/02).

Game Total Betting Is All Numbers With Zero Heart  

Loved by many, avoided like a hornets nest by others, Game Total betting lines are part of the Big Three standard wagering options that also include Point Spread and Moneyline odds. There is a wealth of statistics to help handicappers make informed Over/Under wagers - current form is the most valuable. When a match is too close to call - total bets can be a more prudent wagering path.

While the majority of sports fans enjoy (and often hope for) wide-open and high scoring contests don't let your desire for an action packed contest cloud your Game Total ticket choice. The same applies to the often smaller crowd that prefers defensive slugfest style games. Research the teams involved, with a close eye on offense / defense, and keep duel desires out of your final decision. 

Bettors should keep in mind that this is a 50/50 option and bookmakers are looking to get equal action on both sides. If there is $10 million bet, at a -110 price point on both the OVER and UNDER, sportsbooks pocket a cool $910K risk free profit. Using a secret formula, that we are surprised has never been leaked, smart math people crunch raw numbers to determine the Game Total odds.

Surpassing The Number: Seven of the last nine Super Bowls have produced at least 48 points.

Eagles and Patriots Straddle Game Total Prices

During their 18 games this season, the average Over/Under was set at 49 points on New England matches and UNDER had a 8-10 cashing advantage - including a 1-1 playoff record. The Patriots routed the Titans 35-14 to sneak past the 47 O/U number in the Divisional round before falling just short of the 46 point price during their 24-20 win against the Jaguars in the AFC Championship. 

Over/Under wagering results are level at 9-9 in Philadelphia's 18 matchups (44.7 AVG) and seven of those exceeded the 48 point Super Bowl LII total. The Eagles and Falcons managed just 25 points in their 15-10 NFC Divisional match to stay way under the 47 game total. Exploding on offense, in the NFC Championship, Philadelphia crushing the Vikings 38-7 pushed the total well past 39 points.

New England NFL Championship matches are 5-4 in favour of OVER backers while both Philadelphia battles barely stayed UNDER the numbers (37 & 46.5) on the respective matches. During the Patriots nine title games, 48 or higher has been the line five times and just two of them (1997 & 2017) went OVER. Both teams have a solid defense that is facing pivots who can put points up on the board.

Covered Stadium Scoring: O/U is 5-5 past ten matches played in climate-controlled conditions.

Score Big At Online Sportsbooks During SB LII

Harkening back to big game title fight expectations, some fans prefer a 13-9 defensive battle while many others are hoping for a close 31-28 nail-biter that is won with a field goal in the final seconds or overtime. The Philadelphia defense, which excels at home, was able to fully control Atlanta and Minnesota who both play in a climate controlled home stadium. Containing Tom Brady & Crew on a fast track, indoors at U. S. Bank Stadium, will be a tall challenge for the Philly defenders. It's a safe bet that Bill Belichick has cooked up some schemes QB Nick Foles has never even dreamed about.

Quasi in nature, Canadians will have access to Super Bowl Game Total odds through government organized sports lottery schemes. However, being as Pro Line only posts lines three days at a time, we are not sure what the number will be at this point. We do know, on whatever odds they post, bettors will also have to make two additional selections to get a Game Total wager placed. Simply put - All of that is crazy folks. That is especially true when one considers they can place an NFL Championship bet, on ATS, SU, O/U and prop options, anytime at top rated online sportsbooks.

Betting On The SB LII Game Total: With a one week break still ahead - we have not made our Game Total pick yet. That selection, along with our point spread and moneyline predictions, will be posted at the top of this page on our before 03/02/18.
