Introduction to the Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is an annual event that determines the National Football League’s champion for each given season. Before the term “Super Bowl” was created, the American Football League and the National Football League would battle it out for supremacy in a game previously known as the AFL-NFL World Championship. The term “Super Bowl” was coined as part of the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. After the merger was complete, each league was separated into different conferences. The winners of the AFC (formally known as the AFL) and the NFC (formally the NFL) meet up on Super Bowl Sunday to determine the NFL Champion for each season.

Super Bowl 2020 Predictions

  • Who is the Super Bowl LIV Favorite?
    Current Super Bowl Odds peg the Kansas City Chiefs (2/1) as your future Super Bowl 2020 champions. However, further inspection into the latest odds makes the San Francisco 49ers (13/4) the more attractive bet.
  • Who Will Play in Super Bowl 2020?
    Baltimore Ravens v San Francisco 49ers. The two teams topped the seedings in their respective conferences and it would be a brave move to back against them going head-to-head in Miami. The Ravens went 14-2 during the regular season and possess what looks to be the strongest roster in the NFL. They are strong offensively, while their defense has kept the opposition to under 20 points in nine of their last 12 outings. However, the 49ers were unfortunate to lose 20-17 against the Ravens in their regular season meeting and they will fancy their chances of reversing that result if they meet again. Their defensive display against Green Bay Packers back in November highlighted their ability to shut down potent offenses and at the current prices they look a good bet to claim Super Bowl glory.
  • Who Has a Chance to Shock the World?
    Kansas City Chiefs:
    The Chiefs looked unlikely Super Bowl contenders as they limped to a 6-4 record during the early part of the season. Injuries had hampered their cause up to that point, with numerous key players forced to sit on the sidelines. However, the situation improved and the Chiefs rattled up six successive victories to storm into the play-offs. Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes is one of the most exciting players in the league and he has the ability to lead his team all the way to the Super Bowl.
    Green Bay Packers:
    The Packers’ heavy defeat against the 49ers left many pundits writing off their chances of winning the Super Bowl. However, with home field advantage against Seattle Seahawks in the Divisional Round, the Packers should make it through to the NFC Championship Game where they will most likely face the 49ers. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be eager to show that the result against the 49ers was a fluke and it would be foolish to write-off the Packers’ chances of going all the way.

Betting on Super Bowl 2020 - How to Get Started

  1. Choose an Operator
    When betting on the Super Bowl, you want to make sure you are putting your money in the hands of a reliable and trustworthy operator. Selecting any of the aforementioned operators above will guarantee your safety, while also providing an efficient and simplistic platform. To place a bet through any operator you will need an account. Don’t have an account yet? No worries, simply create one and start earning money.
  2. Choose the Market
    Outright Markets – Outright Markets are when you place a bet on the winner of an entire league or competition instead of a single matchup. These bets can be placed before the season starts and remain open through the completion of the Super Bowl. Prop Bets – Prop Bets or Proposition Bets are a bet placed on an individual player or event. Prop Bets can be placed on anything from how many touchdowns a specific player will score, to whether the coin flip will result in heads or tails.
    Example: Which Conference will produce the winning team – AFC or NFC?
    Other Markets – Other betting markets such as over/under, point spread, and outright winners and more, will be available the closer we get to the kick-off of the big game.
  3. Do Your Research
    Don’t go into a bet blind. Before putting your money down on something, make sure to do your research. The sports world is ever changing, lines and predictions are constantly on the move. Make sure to continuously check the odds, markets, and bookmakers. Have a good understanding of what you are betting on. For instance, visiting sites with Super Bowl predictions and Super Bowl tips will help further your knowledge on a specific Super Bowl betting lines or prop bets to heighten your chances at a more probable and lucrative payout.
  4. Popular Betting Markets
    Outright Winner – The winner of an entire competition rather than a single event. In this case you would place your bet for who you predict to win Super Bowl 2020.
    Point Spread – The point spread is a figure set by oddsmakers to provide an advantage/disadvantage based on a margin of victory/defeat for a given team. The team designated as the “favorite” (likely to win), will be given a negative point spread. This means they would have to win the game by the given points to earn you a payout. The “underdog” is given a positive point spread. Meaning the team can lose a game, but as long as it is within the given positive point spread, they would still be considered winners against the spread.
    Example 1: Seattle Seahawks (+4) vs. Green Bay Packers (-4)
    The Packers enter the game as 4-point favourites, meaning they would have to win the game by more than four points to win the bet. The Seahawks are rated as 4-point underdogs, meaning they could either win or lose the game, but by under four points to win the bet. For instance, let’s say the Packers defeat the Seahawks 20-17. The Packers win the game, but the Seahawks win the bet due to not losing by more than four points – they have effectively “covered the spread.”
    Example 2: Total (Over/Under – 40 points)
    The total is a marker set by oddsmakers to determine the combination of points scored by both teams. You can place your bet on whether you believe the total will be over or under the set total. In this scenario the Packers win 20-17, giving a total of just 37 points scored between the two teams. Since 37 is less than 40, the game went UNDER.

About the Super Bowl

The winner of the Super Bowl is awarded the Lombardi trophy. The trophy is named in honor of Hall of Fame coach Vince Lombardi, who led the Green Bay Packers to victories in the first two inaugural Super Bowl games ever played. The Super Bowl takes place at the culmination of the NFL football season for the calendar year prior. Super Bowl Sunday has blossomed into something of an unofficial national holiday, becoming hands down, one of the biggest events in pro sports.

Super Bowl LIV

Super Bowl 54, the 50th modern-era NFL Championship game, will occur on February 2, 2020, to determine the league champion for the 2019 NFL season. Super Bowl LIV will take place at the Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, Florida. This will be the 11th Super Bowl hosted in the South Florida region and the sixth in Miami Gardens.

The Super Bowl half-time show, one of the biggest events of the year, should once again be an entertaining one. It has been confirmed that superstar music acts Shakira and Jennifer Lopez will headline the show.

The event is seen as a big deal in US culture, with sponsors falling over themselves to cash in on the huge interest it generates. The likes of Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga and Beyonce have all performed on the show, highlighting its popularity.

The half-time show has historically provided numerous moments of controversy, most famously when Timberlake ‘accidently’ exposed Janet Jackson’s breast in the 2004 edition. The Federal Communications Commission charged broadcaster CBS with indecency and fined them $550,000 for the incident.

Beyonce’s appearance alongside Coldplay and Bruno Mars also attracted plenty of attention as she offered her support to the Black Lives Matter movement. She wore a bullet belt outfit to highlight the killing of black men by police in America – a move that New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani described as ‘outrageous’.
