Super Bowl 52 Betting Primer

Looking for information on Super Bowl betting, odds, props, and picks? Check out Odds Shark's new Super Bowl Betting hub.

We’ve rounded the corner and are now making the sprint toward the finish line, with one simple goal in mind — to win money. Hopefully the majority of you are being weighed down by pockets full of cash as Super Bowl 52 approaches, but for those of you who are in the red, there’s no better time than the present to not just get even, but to finish the season on a winning note and force the bookie into a new line of work. Preferably some entry-level gig in the septic tank or porta-potty industry.

Before devouring the list of stats and trends below, it’s important to point out that in a matchup with two great teams like the Eagles and Patriots, there’s a lot of positive numbers favoring each team. Veteran readers of the Betting Primer know that some trends have more meaning than others, so use common sense and don’t base your bet on facts like how the team wearing white has won 12 of the last 13 Super Bowls.

Another piece of advice that I’d like to pass along is to LIMIT YOUR RISK with your Super Bowl 52 bets. Friends who are casual bettors often ask for tips for sports betting, and this is my No. 1 piece of advice. By “limit your risk,” I mean don’t be the guy who’s investing a huge chunk of his payroll on a ridiculous eight-leg parlay. Yes, the potential huge payout is attractive, but they rarely hit. You’re better off placing larger bets on individual wagers. So, enjoy the game, bet smart and, as always, KEEP CHASING THAT PAPER!
