Super Bowl Betting Odds: Sharpest Online Prices Are Here

Tips and advice to cash winning Super Bowl wagers

First and foremost, with the NFL Super Bowl hype machine already rolling, our primary betting advice is; Keep a clear head, bet within your bankroll budget, and get the sharpest Super Bowl odds from the top rated online sportsbooks listed here. Apart from that, since we’ll be bombarded with tons of NFL Championship wagering options, here are a couple tips and tricks we employ during the two weeks leading up to Super Bowl Sunday.

Stay Up Late: The early bird catches the sharpest morning line

Opinions vary on when bettors will receive the best betting prices for the Super Bowl. Our school of thought, one we have believed in for decades, is to stay up late in order to catch the sharpest morning line. Top rated sportsbooks will normally post the opening odds a half hour or so following the final whistle on Championship Sunday. That was the case again this year as bet365.com was one of the first books with a line on the board. Seattle opened as a -1 (-105) favorites at and, after bettors (us included) jumped all over Denver at +1 (-115)  the line quickly moved to it’s current Broncos -2 (-115) price. Armed with the morning line – we now have a chance to “middle” the Super Bowl point spread. We’ll further discuss the  “middling” term later in the week.

Cash in on the “First Team to Receive” Super Bowl proposition betting option

Entirely different from the “Who Will Win The Coin Toss” proposition (that we suggest staying away from) we have been cashing in on the “First Team to Receive” prop option for years now. NFL coaches are creators of habit and they normally stick with regular season decisions that got them to the big dance. Super Bowl XLII is a preeminent example. No matter who won the toss, the NY Giants were a lock to receive the opening kickoff. That’s because New York coach Tom Coughlin always takes the ball when he wins the flip while Bill Belichick defers if the Patriots win the coin toss. Right on cue and true to form – The Pats won the toss and deferred.

To get your Super Bowl Sunday off on winning note – we will be back with our research and call  for the “First Team to Receive” Super Bowl prop, along with many more, later in the week. In the meantime, feel free to surf around at our recommended online sportsbooks to get a feel for the various Super Bowl XLVIII betting odds!
