Super Bowl Betting History

The biggest Super Bowl spreads in history saw one team easily cover 18.5 points (the San Francisco 49ers blew out the San Diego Chargers at Super Bowl XXIX) and one team lose outright in the biggest upset in Super Bowl history (Joe Namath’s guaranteed win by the New York Jets over the Baltimore Colts as 18-point dogs at Super Bowl III).

The past two times that the Super Bowl saw a double-digit favorite the betting underdog won outright each time in a huge upset. The New England Patriots were victimized by the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII as 12-point chalk after earlier beating the St. Louis Rams as 14-point underdogs back at Super Bowl XXXVI.
