NFL Super Bowl Betting Analysis, Tips & Advice

The deadly New England Patriots are 3-point favorites to win Super Bowl LI over the high-flying Atlanta Falcons.

The favorite has won 32 of 50 Super Bowls.

The total opened at 58, making it the highest over/under in Super Bowl history. Early betting pushed the over as high as 60, eventually settling at 59.5

This is the Patriots’ 9th Super Bowl trip in franchise history. Patriots beat Steelers 36-17 to advance to a record ninth Super Bowl. New England also covered after closing as a 5.5-point home favorite and it went over the closing total of 50 points. In the NFL playoffs, favorites are 8-2 SU and ATS while overs improved to 7-3 as faves and overs both swept the games today.

The Falcons advanced to the franchise’s second Super Bowl with an impressive dismantling of the Packers by a 44-21 score on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game. Atlanta covered as a 6-point home favorite and the game went over the betting total of 60.5 points, the highest-ever NFL playoff over/under.

The Falcons began the season as 100-1 long shots to win the Super Bowl and could be found at 150-1 in mid-September after opening with a home loss to Tampa Bay. 

The Patriots began the season at around 5-1 and remained the consensus Super Bowl favorites throughout the season.

Sometimes it’s clear from when the opening NFL betting odds are released that a team is going to win and/or cover the spread. Other times, it looks like one team is going to coast to victory from the opening kick-off yet the other one rallies late in the game, which causes bettors to wonder how they could have possibly lost that game and cry “bad beat!” Then, of course, there are the back-and-forth, 50-50 games that are virtual coin flips.
