“The coin toss is a very popular Super Bowl prop bet. Customers love early action and the coin toss gives them a chance to win before the game even starts. Tails is often the most popular side of this prop, as the old saying goes, ‘tails never fails’.” – Darren Darby, Sports Trader, BetMGM.

Betting on the coin toss will be the first betting market to close for the Super Bowl, which makes it attractive to some bettors who will like to see something grade before the game even starts. BetMGM has provided us with some coin toss betting information, let’s take a look.

 

Pick Heads or Tails for Super Bowl 55?

Note: The coin toss is approved for wagering by regulators in Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and West Virginia.

Regulators have not approved this prop bet in Colorado, Iowa and Virginia.

BetMGM Ticket%, Handle% and Line Movement

At BetMGM Sportsbook, they have provided us with public betting information on the coin toss. As you can see, there is an overwhelming majority of bettors that are wagering on the call to be “heads”. Let’s take a deeper look at the public betting info provided above.

As for the outcome, it is quite split between heads and tails, but there are more tickets and money on tails. As for what the coin toss call will be, that and the “decision” of the coin toss are the two betting markets that are heavily favoring one side. As you can see, 85% of the bets are on “receive opening kick-off” but a whopping 73% of the money is on “defer” which is priced at +400.

Placing a bet on the winning team to defer to the second half at +400 is tremendous value, so be sure to head over to BetMGM Sportsbook to take advantage.

Bet on the Coin Toss at FanDuel Sportsbook

At FanDuel Sportsbook, you can wager on the coin toss with small juice on either side. FanDuel has heads and tails at (-103), but if the BetMGM numbers are any indication we will see heavy money on heads being the “call”. Is there an edge to be had by betting on the coin toss? Science and math tell us that it is a 50/50 chance, either way. But with FanDuel offering less juice, there is better value there.

There are other Super Bowl props available at BetMGM, FanDuel and many other books. These include game props, player props, and even boosters such as if one team scores a touchdown you can double your money at DraftKings Sportsbook.

 

Trend Says Bet on the NFC to Win the Coin Toss

What a trend this is for the coin toss. Check this out.

The NFC is 37-17 winning the coin flip in Super Bowl history. Of course, bettors know that these types of trends aren’t necessarily predicting the future but what a trend that is. What does this trend mean? Bet on the Bucs to win the toss, and the Chiefs to lose calling the toss at DraftKings Sportsbook.

There are three coin toss props available on DraftKings for this weekend:

  • Coin Toss Outcome
  • Coin Toss Winner
  • Player to correctly call the Coin Toss
