Colossal in global appeal, betting options offered, plus the parties that sprout up because of it, few single-day sporting events rival the excitement and entertainment value offered by the Super Bowl. Contested annually, since 1967, and featuring the top NFC and AFC squads, the NFL Championship contest is a cornucopia of heroes and heartbreak. Ahead of Super Bowl LII, here we take a look at the past winners and losers on Super Bowl Sunday.


Super Bowl Scores History

Following four weeks of preseason games, a 17-week regular season schedule, plus three exciting rounds of playoff action, two teams remain standing in the fight for NFL supremacy. While slated to be a battle of “the best of the best” Super Bowl Sunday has had its share of blowouts. In addition, as our score table below illustrates, several dogs have had their day during thrilling NFL title games.

Super Bowl Wins by Team

Deeply desired, by every NFL team, the list of Super Bowl Champions is not as long as some might expect. With model franchises regularly in contention, like New England and Pittsburgh, just 19 NFL teams have hoisted the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Getting to the Big Dance is a tough task as four current squads have never played on Super Bowl Sunday and another six have only been to one.

Super Bowl Favourites

Dripping with tradition, and steeped in history, few if any sporting events rival the NFL Super Bowl. From hard-fought battles in the early days, that were mainly waged in the trenches, to the high-flying excitement of today, American Football Championship clashes heat up in early February every year. Hundreds of moneymaking betting options put a bow on this spectacular sporting event.

When it comes to handicapping, one of the best things about the National Football League is its compact schedule. Shorter than any pro sports season in North America, bettors can easily follow the action from Week 1 all the way up to Super Bowl Sunday. The rise of the information age also helps ‘Cappers make informed, profit taking, decisions throughout the 22-week betting period.

Also, since there is a two-week gap between the AFC and NFC Championships and Super Bowl Sunday, bettors have plenty of time to research the match - a requirement to cash winning wagers. Whether it’s betting on standard straight up, ATS and game totals options, or dabbling in the hundreds of unique prop offers, there’s something for everyone’s betting preference and budget.

Best Online Super Bowl Betting Sportsbooks

That said, betting on the premier football match of the year is easier said than done. Including the Seattle vs New England SB XLIX match, that was posted at EVEN, favorites own a slim 26-22-2 edge against the spread and a sparkling 35-15 straight up mark during the first 51 fights. Chalk squads owned the spotlight early as favorites went 20-9 during the first 29 Super Bowl battles.

Excluding two games that ended as a PUSH, the dogs had their day from 1996 to 2017 as pups went 13-6 ATS over 21 NFL Championships. From 2008 to 2017 the underdogs rewarded their backers in a big way going 7-3 ATS and an even more impressive 6-3 straight up. The dogs were barking in their ATS wins as they outscored the favorites by a 180-106 combined final margin.

With eight teams still left in the chase, it’s difficult to forecast what kind of numbers will be posted on Super LII. The big game plays out a US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, MN, on February 4, 2018. Our current SB futures odds point to a New England Patriots vs Minnesota Vikings match.
