How To Bet On The Super Bowl In Louisiana

History of New Orleans Saints Championships

In their early years, the Saints struggled to find success on the field. Prior to the 2000 NFL season, the Saints had one division title to their name. Since then, they have won eight division titles. They have been to the NFC Championship game three times and in their only trip to the Super Bowl, they beat the Indianapolis Colts, 31-17,  in Super Bowl XLIV in Miami.

Much of the success came with Sean Payton as head coach and Drew Brees as the quarterback. Brees retired at the end of the 2020 season, and Payton announced his retirement at the end of the 2021 season. New head coach Dennis Allen will look to lead the Saints to their second Super Bowl title in the 2022-23 season.

NFL Super Bowl Odds and Betting

There are more ways to bet on the Super Bowl than any other game on the NFL schedule. For most of the calendar year, fans can place futures bets on the game by picking a winner.

A betting line for the game and odds for hundreds of prop bets (i.e., player production, who scores first, what the first score is, coin flip, etc.) typically don’t get posted until after the NFC and AFC Championship games.

Check your favorite sportsbooks’ offerings when it comes to picking Super Bowl props.

What is a Futures Bet?

A futures bet is a wager on the outcome of a future event. Examples of futures bets include a team to win the division, a team to win the conference championship, and a team to win the Super Bowl. Season win totals where you can bet a team winning over or under a certain amount of games is also a form of futures betting. There are also player-based futures markets, such as odds to win MVP or Rookie of the Year, as well as over/under on individual stats such as passing yards and touchdowns.

Super Bowl futures odds are often posted shortly after the conclusion of the previous Super Bowl and come down once the conference championship games get played.

What is a Prop Bet?

Prop bets, once predominantly for the Super Bowl but now available for most games in major sports, are wagering options not always tied directly to the outcome of the game. These sorts of bets began with and are especially popular for the Super Bowl. Some of the more popular Super Bowl prop bets include the result of the coin flip, which player will score the first touchdown, and who will be named MVP.

Game-related prop bets will include items such as whether there will be a score in the first five minutes, which team will score first, whether the opening kickoff will be a touchback, whether the first score will be a field goal or touchdown, whether there will be a safety in the game, and various player production-related outcomes.

How Super Bowl Bettings Odds Are Calculated

Odds to win the Super Bowl will vary from one sportsbook to the next, and these futures odds change throughout the offseason based on player movement (trades, free agency, and the draft). For example, when the Los Angeles Rams acquired Matthew Stafford, their odds became shorter. When Drew Brees announced his retirement, the Saints’ odds got longer.

The odds also shift depending on how much money gets wagered on a specific team. Sportsbooks protect their interest by encouraging fans to bet one way or another.

When the season gets underway, odds move based on wins and losses and how well or poorly teams are playing. The odds can also change if a key player suffers a significant injury.

Once the AFC and NFC title games conclude, sportsbooks will set the opening line for the Super Bowl. How well both teams are playing, the health of their respective rosters, how their rosters match up, and anything else oddsmakers deem relevant will be used to help set the opening line.
