SUPER BOWL SPREADS
Through the first 57 Super Bowls, the NFC has gone 29-28 against the AFC. The Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots have the most Super Bowl wins at six, while the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers both have five.
Favorites have gone 37-19 straight up and 29-23-2 against the spread in the Super Bowl. The largest upset came in Super Bowl III (1969) when the New York Jets beat the Baltimore Colts 16-7 as 18-point underdogs.
SUPER BOWL LINES
The point-spread rarely comes into play with the Super Bowl, meaning you just have to pick the winner of the game. There have only been seven instances where the favorite won the game straight up but failed to cover the number.
It happened in last year's Super Bowl when the Rams failed to cover (-4.5) in their 23-20 victory over the Bengals in Super Bowl 56. The other six outcomes occurred in 2009, 2005, 2004, 1996, 1989 and 1976.
In the 2014-15 Super Bowl between New England and Seattle, the closing consensus line was pick 'em, which was the first in the NFL finale. The Patriots rallied for a 28-24 victory over the Seahawks.
Oddsmakers were on the money with their numbers in two Super Bowls, which produced pushes or ties. Those matchups took place in 1997 and 2000.
SUPER BOWL BLACK SUNDAY
The most infamous pro football finale for oddsmakers was Super Bowl XIII and a lesson learned for all individuals standing behind the betting counter.
The 13th installment saw the Steelers open as 4 ½-point favorites over the Cowboys and the number dropped to 3 ½-points with early action on the Cowboys.
Even though Dallas lost the game 35-31 to Pittsburgh, early bettors cashed with the 4 ½-points and Steelers backers won on the closing line. To this day, SBXIII is considered “Black Sunday” for the sportsbooks.
SUPER BOWL OVER UNDER
The Super Bowl ‘over/under’ wager has often been called the total in the sports betting industry. An opening line is set based on the expected combined points scored from both teams in the game. Bettors can wager on the outcome and if it will be either higher or lower or put simply, over or under.
The ‘over/under’ has gone 28-28 in the first 57 Super Bowl matchups. No total was posted on Super Bowl I between the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs.
In the 2019 Super Bowl, the New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 and the combined 16 points was the lowest ‘over/under’ result in Super Bowl history. The three points by the Rams matched an all-time low in the big game, matching the Miami Dolphins from way back in Super Bowl VI.
The ‘over/under’ on that outcome closed at 56 points, which was the 11th Super Bowl to have a total close in the fifties.
The highest Super Bowl ‘over/under’ outcome occurred in Super Bowl XXIX when the San Francisco 49ers demolished the San Diego Chargers, 49-26.
In Super Bowl 57, the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles combined for the second-most points in the NFL finale with 73 points (38-35).

SUPER BOWL DIVISION BETTING RESULTS
The NFL is made up of eight divisions and some groups have made more appearances in the NFL finale than others.
Also, some divisions have performed better too.
Below is a break down of all four divisions in both the AFC and NFC conferences.
Knowing the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots both have six Super Bowl victories, the AFC North and AFC East are expected to lead this breakdown.
While the East Division has nine wins, the North comes in with 8 but a much better record at 8-4.
The AFC South has gone 2-3 in five trips to the Super Bowl, the lowest among the four divisions and that's not a shocker since both the Jacksonville Jaguars or Houston Texans have earned a trip to the NFL title game.
AFC SUPER BOWL DIVISION BY DIVISION RESULTS
AFC East: 9-12 SU, 7-13-1 ATS, 10-11 O/U
AFC North: 8-5 SU, 9-4 ATS, 7-6 O/U
AFC South: 2-3 SU, 2-2-1 ATS, 0-5 O/U
AFC West: 9-10 SU, 9-10 ATS, 11-7 O/U*
It shouldn't come as a suprise to see the NFC East as the top division in the NFC since they're the only group to have three teams with multiple championships.
- Dallas Cowboys (5)
- New York Giants (4)
- Washington Football Team (3)
The NFC South brings up the rear with a 2-4 overall record as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints both own 1-0 records while the Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers have each gone 0-2.
NFC SUPER BOWL DIVISION BY DIVISION RESULTS
NFC East: 13-9 SU, 14-8 ATS, 11-11 O/U
NFC North: 5-6 SU, 4-6-1 ATS, 6-4 O/U*
NFC South: 3-4 SU, 4-3 ATS, 4-3 O/U
NFC West: 8-8 SU, 6-9-1 ATS, 8-8 O/U
