Super Bowl Coin Toss Winners & Props

*Update - The result of the coin toss for Super Bowl 50 was tails. The Panthers won the coin toss.

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, a 50/50 proposition, is practically an American tradition, and hundreds of thousands of dollars are bet on this simple event each season.

Five of the last seven Super Bowl coin tosses have landed on heads, with the NFC team winning 16 of the last 18 flips heading into Super Bowl 50. The team that has won the coin toss has gone on to win four of the last six Super Bowls.

Overall, the coin toss has almost lived up to its reputation as a 50/50 proposition, with heads landing 24 times and tails landing 25 times in the 49 Super Bowls. Teams winning the toss have gone on to win 24 of the 49 Super Bowls, with heads and tails each turning up an even 12 times during those wins.

While the coin toss can have a serious impact on a game, determining which team receives the ball on the opening kickoffs in each half, it hasn’t always been kind to teams that have made multiple Super Bowl appearances.

The New England Patriots have made eight Super Bowl appearances, losing the toss in each of their four victories in Super Bowls 36, 38, 39, and 49, but got blown out by the Green Bay Packers as a coin toss winner in Super Bowl 31 and were upset by the New York Giants after winning the toss in Super Bowl 46.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have also defied the coin toss in their six Super Bowl victories, winning the toss just once with tails in their 16-6 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl 9. Indeed, opponents winning the toss with heads are just 1-4 against the Steelers on Super Sunday.

San Francisco 49ers fans put a lot of stock into the Super Bowl coin toss. The Niners are a perfect 4-0 in Super Bowls where they have won the toss, which has come up tails in three of their four championship victories. The Dallas Cowboys have won the toss on six of their eight trips to the Super Bowl, although it wasn’t until their fourth Super Bowl appearance that Dallas went on to victory after winning the toss.

As for this year's game, the Broncos have appeared in seven Super Bowls heading into Super Bowl 50, and they've won the toss just twice—both resulting in losses. In their lone Super Bowl appearance vs the Patriots in Super Bowl 38, the Panthers won the toss, but lost the game.
