Super Bowl Coin Toss Odds & Betting History: Tails Never Fails?

The 2021 Super Bowl coin toss before Super Bowl 56 odds come out

The Super Bowl isn’t just a game, it’s an event. One of the best parts of the Super Bowl event every year is the crazy number of prop bets available for the average bettor. You can bet on niche props like the national anthem runtime or what color of Gatorade will be poured on the winning coach, but the pregame Super Bowl coin toss is always a massive draw because there is no true edge.

Whether you’re a seasoned professional bettor or making your first visit to a sportsbook, you’re not missing out on any edge for the coin toss bet. It’s a great way to start your Super Bowl prop betting night, check if luck is on your side, and if you’re looking for advice on what way to bet: Tails never fails.

What Is A Coin Toss Prop Bet?

Short for proposition, a prop is a bet that doesn’t necessarily correlate with the final outcome of the game. The coin flip is a perfect example of a fun or exotic prop, because it relies less on data and stats and more on chance.

You don’t have to check ATS standings or betting trends as you would for your moneyline bets or player props. Plus, teams that win the toss don’t always win the Super Bowl. For example, last year at Super Bowl 55, the Kansas City Chiefs won the toss but lost the game to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

While some NFL and Super Bowl bets require intense research, I’m sure you already know how a coin toss works. It’s simple, you either pick HEADS or TAILS. That’s it. There’s a 50-50 chance that the coin lands on what you picked. You don’t have to factor in an NFL player’s past performance or coaching decisions. You can, however, look at historical data and we cover that below.

There is no clear favorite for this bet since there is a 50-50 chance of winning for each side. If you put $50 on HEADS and that’s how the coin lands, with -110 odds you’d get a payout of $95.45  – your original $50 is returned along with your winnings of $45.45. The same wager on a winning TAILS bet would net you the exact same payout since the odds are identical. To know how much you’d win based on the odds and amount of money you bet, check out our Odds Calculator.

Coin Toss Betting History

Since the first Super Bowl, HEADS has come up 26 times and TAILS 29. In the last 10 Super Bowls, tails also has the edge with six victories. I told you tails never fails (except for when it does).

You can lock in a tails bet over at one of our best Super Bowl sportsbooks, like BetUS at the button below:

Does The Coin Toss Impact The Super Bowl?

The coin flip can have an impact on the game. Generally, teams that win the coin toss choose to receive the ball but deferring to the second half has become a more popular trend. When you receive the ball, you get the first scoring chance. Even if you don’t score a touchdown, you can still move the ball downfield enough to get into field-goal range and at least put three points on the board.

Unless, of course, the other team’s defense is that good and you can’t move the ball at all. This is possible considering it’s the Super Bowl and you don’t get there with a subpar defense.
