Super Bowl futures odds
Super Bowl futures odds are posted all year long at online sportsbooks. You can bet on who you think will win the next Super Bowl at any point. The odds to win the Super Bowl are continually adjusted alongside each teams’ perceived chances of winning.
When teams are eliminated from playoff contention, or lose in the playoffs, they are removed from the futures odds board. Then, the Super Bowl betting odds on the remaining teams tighten up. That means the earlier you can get a bet down on the teams that emerge as true Super Bowl contenders, the better the odds.

Most popular Super Bowl bets
There are a number of ways to get in on the action on Super Bowl Sunday, but the biggest attention grabbers are a trio of pregame bets. When you visit a legal online Canadian sportsbook, the odds for these wagers will be featured prominently.
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||2.40||+3.0 (1.91)||O 56.0 (1.91)|
|Kansas City Chiefs||1.63||-3.0 (1.91)||U 56.0 (1.91)|
You can also toggle the lines to view them in the American format if you prefer.
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||+140||+3.0 (-110)||O 56.0 (-110)|
|Kansas City Chiefs||-160||-3.0 (-110)||U 56.0 (-110)|
The Chiefs are favoured on the moneyline, as indicated by the lower value of the decimal odds and the negative number for American odds. Kansas City is a 3-point favourite on the spread with the total set at 56 points. Here’s a quick refresher on how the bets work.
- Moneyline: Just pick the winner from the favourite or underdog.
- Spread: Pick the favourite minus the points or the underdog plus the spread.
- Totals: Bet on the over or under on the estimated total points scored.
As for potential returns, to win $100 on the spread or total at odds of 1.91 or -110, you’d have to wager $110. When betting on the moneyline, it’s a $160 bet to win $100 at -160 or 1.63, while a $100 winner brings back $140 at +140 or 2.40.
The big three pregame bets will bring in a huge amount of action for the Super Bowl, but they’re far from the only way to get in the game. Let’s take a look at some of the other major ways to bet on the Big Game in Canada.
Super Bowl Prop Bets
Super Bowl prop betting is also hugely popular. In fact, there are more props for the Super Bowl than for any other sporting event. Super Bowl props surround everything in and outside the game. Those available at online sportsbooks may include:
- Super Bowl MVP: Book bets at positive moneyline odds ahead of the game, even on those players with a solid chance of winning MVP.
- Non-Football Props: Props can focus on things peripheral to the game, including the coin toss outcome, national anthem, halftime show and what colour Gatorade gets poured on the winning coach.
- Yes/No Props: Pick props that ask a “yes” or “no” question, like will there be a defensive score, or will there be a kickoff or punt returned for a TD?
- Over/Under Props: Some props ask whether certain statistical milestones will be achieved, like an over/under on the total first half points or total touchdowns in the game.
- Team/Player Props: Some ask whether players or teams can achieve certain things, like who will score the first TD or how many will one team score.
- Combo Props/Parlays: Others combine two or more props into one, like the outcome of the coin toss and a game winner.
- Crossover Props: Finally, some combine two or more bets, including at least one from the Super Bowl and one from another sporting event.
For the average NFL game, there will be plenty of props to consider, but the number rises into the hundreds for the Super Bowl. They’ll be released well in advance of game time, so you’ll have plenty of time to study up and pick your spots.
Bet on Super Bowl MVP
Once the Super Bowl matchup is set, a Super Bowl MVP odds market launches. You’ll find positive moneyline odds on just about every player simply because there’s no true favourite to win Super Bowl MVP. However, the starting quarterback for the winning team often secures the honour. If that starting quarterback also happens to be Tom Brady, that goes double.
Add it up, and you can probably book bets on both starting quarterbacks and still make a profit as long as one of them wins it. Otherwise, backing the QB starting for your selected team is a good bet.

Super Bowl Same Game Parlays
Long-time Canadian bettors are familiar with the parlay-style games that have been available for ages. But the introduction of legal single-event betting opens the doors to a new format. You can place a same-game parlay wager on the Super Bowl.
In a nutshell, you’re putting together a bet with multiple legs. For example, you could put together something like this with a combo of pregame bets and player props.
- Packers -2.5 points
- Over 52.5 points
- Aaron Rodgers to throw for Over 279.5 yards
- Davante Adams to score a TD
Just like a regular parlay, you have to be right on all legs for the bet to be a winner. If just one of your calls is wrong, the bet is a loser. Known as SGPs for short, they’re risky but potentially rewarding while the entertainment factor is huge.
Super Bowl Live Betting
After the Super Bowl kicks off, it’s time to enjoy the action and hope for the best with your bets, right? That was the case once upon a time, but the introduction of live betting opens the doors to real-time wagering as the game plays out on the field.
The legal online sportsbooks will have updated odds on the main pregame bets. There will also be new props to consider, and even betting on quarters and halves.
- Who will hold the halftime lead – Packers or Bills?
- Total TDs for Josh Allen in the second half – Over/Under 1.5?
- Will both teams score in the third quarter – Yes/No?
Live betting markets move incredibly fast with the odds and offerings updating constantly as the game plays out. It can be easy to get swept up in the excitement as a result, so remember to always bet responsibly.
NFL Super Bowl betting strategy
When getting set to bet on the Super Bowl, a good starting point is to determine your budget. You should only wager with money that you’re comfortable losing. As an example, let’s say that you had $100 in disposable income that you wanted to use for wagering.
While you could take that $100 and place it on your top choice, there’s a lot to be said for spreading out the risk. This will give you more chances to win while also spreading out your rooting interest. You could divvy up your funds something like this:
- $50 for your favourite pregame bet
- $10 on Super Bowl MVP
- $20 for your other favourite NFL player props
- $10 for live betting
After you determine what you want to bet on, it’s time to dig in and make your calls. There will be plenty of opinions to glean in the run-up to the Big Game, but you can also follow a few simple steps to find the bets you’re most comfortable with.
- Examine the matchup from top to bottom while looking for clear edges on either side.
- Review results against each other and any common opponents from the previous season.
- Stay on top of the news and any injury notes on key players.
- Study the odds board and watch for line movements throughout the week.
- Cut the list of available props down to a manageable list of those that you’re most interested in.
- Sort through the MVP odds and make a shortlist of realistic candidates and potential sleepers to watch.
- Think through a live betting strategy and situations in which you may want to be ready to jump in.
If you have a game plan going in, you’ll have a much better chance of finding success than simply winging it. By putting in some effort and budgeting responsibly, betting on the Super Bowl can be that much more enjoyable.
NFL Super Bowl Betting Trends
When trying to make heads or tails of the Super Bowl matchup, thoughts will eventually turn to attempting to dig out some clues from the overall betting trends. If we take a look at Big Game history through 55 editions, here’s the lay of the land on the big three pregame bets.
- Moneyline: Favorites 36-18 with one pick’em
- Spread: Favorites 28-24-2 with one pick’em
- Totals: Over 27-27 (No totals line for Super Bowl I)
Favourites have a big edge on the moneyline and a slight advantage on the spread. Meanwhile, totals have been a complete crapshoot. If we take a look five Super Bowls from 2017-2021, here’s the tale of the tape:
- Moneyline: Favorites 3-2
- Spread: Favourites 3-2
- Totals: Under 3-2
While it’s a small sample size, the side that covered has also been the outright winner. Since the Super Bowl spread is traditionally pretty tight, make sure you have a concrete reason for going against that trend.
Why do Super Bowl odds change?
Oddsmakers set Super Bowl lines with stunning accuracy in an effort to draw equal betting to each side. That way, the sportsbooks posting these lines can realize the “vig” and make a guaranteed profit without having to sweat the results of the game itself.
Sometimes, these lines change ahead of the kickoff. The lines change because of news about key injuries ahead of the game. If the Super Bowl is in an outdoor stadium, the lines can change because of news about the weather and its possible impact on scoring. Sportsbooks may also change the lines when the betting is uneven. If more money floods in on one side of a line, a sportsbook will adjust that line to draw equal betting to the other side.
Of course, that opens up a betting opportunity for you. “Fading the public” means taking advantage of the otherwise artificial nature of this movement in the line. You do that by betting that oddsmakers were right in the first place, taking advantage of improved odds on the bet or more leeway with the spread.

Which Super Bowl attracted the most viewers in Canada?
The high-water mark actually happened recently. Super Bowl LIV on February 2, 2020 set the all-time Super Bowl record for Canadian viewers with an audience of 9.5 million. The game was carried by a combo of TSN, CTV, and RDS. The Kansas City Chiefs outlasted the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 31-20 to claim the crown.
2021 ratings weren’t too shabby either as 8.8 million viewers watched the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take down the Chiefs by a score of 31-9. The same trio of networks provided coverage of the game while streaming numbers went through the roof. It’ll be interesting to see how high the numbers continue to climb in the new legal betting era.
