It’s the simplest of the hundreds of Super Bowl prop bets available at sportsbooks around the world, but it’s also the most popular for bettors. Wagering on the Super Bowl coin toss is practically an American tradition.
A 50-50 proposition, hundreds of thousands of dollars are bet on the Super Bowl coin flip. And online sportsbook 5Dimes is offering some of the best odds on the Super Bowl coin flip in the betting market.
Bettors can choose heads or tails, while laying -101. That means you can bet $101 to win $100. Although the NFC should be favored, given the fact that NFC teams have won 17 of 20 coin tosses!
The last five Super Bowl coin tosses have landed on heads, with the NFC team winning 14 of the last 16 flips. The AFC teams, however, have won the last two coin flips. The team that has won the coin toss has gone on to win three of the last four Super Bowls.

The Super Bowl coin toss is supposed to the fairest and least predictable way to start the NFL title game, but reality shows that this random event never seems very random. In the 14 games between Super Bowl 32 and Super Bowl 45, the NFC never lost a coin toss. That's 14-0 on a 50-50 proposition.
Small wonder some of the best online sportsbooks even offered the AFC as a slight underdog to win on the Super Bowl coin toss betting menus. Then the Patriots won the toss (but lost the game) in Super Bowl 46 to break the streak.
As of Super Bowl 47 between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, 'heads' was on a four-game win streak. But Super Bowl history tells us that it's almost a guarantee that this toss will be tails. Why? Three other times, there have been four-game streaks, but never five. So if that holds true, tails is due in 2013.
