There’s almost an infinite way to bet on the NFL, and the Super Bowl Picks take that to another level. On a typical NFL game, you are able to wager picks against the spread, over/under, parlays, prop bets, and more, there really is a wager type for every kind of football fan and sports bettor. The Super Bowl has even more of each wager type and even has unique Super Bowl picks such as the national Anthem length, the artists opening song of the HalfTime Show, to the color of the Gatorade shower. Some bettors like to specialize in a single type of Super Bowl pick, while others may like to place a few picks just to add a bit of fun alongside watching the game. At Pickswise all of our Super Bowl picks are fully researched by our expert handicappers and are accompanied with full analysis and reasoning for the pick. So no matter what type of sports bettor you are, new or old, seasoned or rookie, we have all bases covered here with our Super Bowl picks.
The most popular way to bet on the Super Bowl is against the spread (ATS). Much like the regular season, where it is a weekly staple for sports bettors, everyone from TV Analysts to professional sports bettors cast their opinion on which way the spread will land. With a Super Bowl pick Against the Spread, you are not simply picking who will lift the Lombardi Trophy but who will cover the spread, as set by sportsbooks ahead of the Super Bowl. For example, in 2020 the Kansas City Chiefs were 1.5-favorites, which meant to cover the spread they had to win by more than 1.5 points, or for San Francisco to win against the spread they would have to win or lose by less than 1.5 points. The final score was 31-20 to the Chiefs, therefore the Chiefs covered the spread, and Super Bowl picks on the Chiefs -1.5 would cash. A fun stat worth noting is that in NFL games, the team that covers the spread wins the game outright around 80% of the time.
Over/Under Super Bowl Picks are perfect when you aren’t 100% confident in which team is going to win and there is often no game more highly contested than the Super Bowl itself. Instead of choosing a team to win, or a team to cover the spread, you wager against a pre-set game total points line, and whether you see the game hitting over or under that line. This way you have both teams working for you, if you back the over you just sit back and hope it rains points, or for a tight, tactical low scoring affair with the under. The exciting thing about this market, is you are often never out of it, particularly with taking the overs. The game could be done but a last-ditch Field Goal to seal it or a successful hail mary by the trailing team can be the difference, and often is, with the over or under hitting. Our experts put hours of research every week to preview the over-under markets and the Super Bowl over/under picks are no different. From experience handicapping, watching every game and a wealth of statistical analysis including team news, injuries, weather and more, our over/under Super Bowl picks are the best free picks on the market.
Any seasoned or long term sports better will tell you, that while a bet against the spread is exciting and the odds are better, it can be equally frustrating. An NFL team, in theory, is looking to win by 1, and in no game more so than the Super Bowl. Of course they’d love to win by more and take a 20 point lead into the fourth quarter, but sports often aren’t like that. With Moneyline wagering, you are simply picking a team to win, it’s that simple. If you wager the favorite on the Moneyline, you often won’t get great odds but it’s seen as a safer pick, betting the underdogs, however, can see you pick up great odds on the upset. The Super Bowl sees the two best teams on the year face off (usually) so the margins are often a lot finer. With this in mind you can often get pretty good odds for either team and don’t have to worry about covering the spread. Our Super Bowl picks on the Moneyline are well-researched and fully explained. Our expert handicappers rely on decades of experience as well as statistical analysis to provide you the best, free Moneyline Super Bowl Picks.
