Super Bowl Betting


 

Super Bowl 54 is set, with the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers taking on the Kansas City Chiefs, winner of the AFC Championship. Super Betting odds have already opened, as the Chiefs opened as favorites to win. The Super Bowl is the single event that has the most bets of the year, and betting markets will be aplenty. With legal sports betting in the U.S. being more prevalent (ex: Indiana Super Bowl Props), expect more money to be bet on the Super Bowl than ever before. Let’s take a look at the Super Bowl betting history.
