NFL Super Bowl Betting History

Super Bowl Point Spreads History: Odds For Every Game

Betting on the NFL’s biggest Sunday matchup requires skill and a basic knowledge of sports wagering. We’ve compiled the scores, ATS and OVER/UNDER results of each Super Bowl to date to help you handicap your bets.

The Super Bowl point spread is the number of points given or subtracted from either team to create a more even betting field. For instance, the odds for Super Bowl 57 currently look like this: 

  • Philadelphia Eagles -2
  • Kansas City Chiefs +2

This Super Bowl 57 line means the Eagles need to win the title game by three points or more to cover the spread, while the Chiefs would need to win the game outright or lose by only one point.

The OVER/UNDER point total for Super Bowl LVII has also been set at 50.0 total points. This means you can bet that there will be OVER 50 combined points between the Eagles and Chiefs or there will be UNDER 50.

Look below for more historical odds to get a better idea how the big games usually play out.

Check out the Super Bowl points spread history below, which shows definitively that the team that wins almost always covers the spread as well.

Super Bowl Totals History

In this table, you’ll see a list of Super Bowl winners, including who won the last Super Bowl, with the totals in parentheses. This is the combined score of both teams where bettors would need to decide if the final score will be OVER or UNDER the oddsmaker’s set number.
