Super Bowl XLVIII Coin Toss Odds
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (The Spread) – Outside of the actual game, one of the biggest wagers on the Super Bowl is the coin toss. Here's a look at some prop odds centered on the opening flip.
Will the team that chooses heads or tails in the coin toss be correct? According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the odds are -115 for "Yes" and -115 for "No," which obviously gives bettors a 50/50 chance of getting the pick right. Of course, we're talking about the coin toss so most of these odds come with 50/50 chances.
Will the winning flip be heads or tails? The odds are listed at -105, respectively, for both sides. Over the last 10 years, "heads" has come up six times and five in a row. While it would be tempting to pick heads, chances are high that tails will break the cycle soon, if not get on a streak itself. It's also worth noting that the streak of heads being called is the longest in Super Bowl history.
Will the team that wins the coin toss also win the game? The odds are -115 for "Yes" and -115 for "No." Over the last 10 years, the team that won the coin toss went on to win the Super Bowl only four times, but they've won three of the last four NFL title games, including last year when the Ravens beat the 49ers.
Which team will win the coin toss this year? The Seahawks and Broncos are both -105, respectively. Over the last 10 years, the NFC has won the coin toss eight times, although the AFC has won the flip the past two Super Bowls.
