The Super Bowl quite simply is Christmas for sports fans and gamblers alike. Watched by over 100 million since 2010, the viewership just keeps increasing. Even Super Bowl Commercials are so famous they cost an average of $4 million for a 30-second spot. From 2005 to 2014, over $2.19 billion was generated in terms of network advertising sales alone. Oddsmakers gladly set all kinds of betting lines many of which are focused on non-football events.
The halftime show with performances from artists like Beyonce and The Rolling Stones is just one example. With the advent of online betting and smart phone technology, Super Bowl betting has exploded and reached new heights with 2015 recording a new high of $119 million and each year looks to keep it trending upwards.

What To Bet On Super Bowl
The number of betting options are plentiful:
Money Line: the easiest bet to make: pick the Super Bowl winner, straight up. Favourites have minus numbers like -160 while underdogs have plus numbers like +135. These are derived from $100 bets where a bet of $160 is required to win $100 for the fave and $135 is won on a $100 underdog bet.
Point Spread: betting on whichever team "covers" the points they are allotted. Favourites have minus numbers like -4 indicating they need to win by more than 4 points while underdogs have plus numbers like +4 indicating they are allowed up to 4 points to lose. Both teams will have similar betting prices.
Over/Under (Totals): predicting if the combined score between both teams will amount to more than (over) or less than (under) the oddsmaker's projected number.
Props: this is where it gets real wild. Props are "exotic" bets that do not have anything to do with the game's outcome but more on side action. Some props may include and have included:
- Length of the national anthem
- The accessories/outfit of the halftime show performer
- Colour of the Gatorade bath
- The number of pizzas sold by Domino's
