Sportsbooks have come up with almost nearly perfect totals for the game throughout the last 52 years. Super Bowl I had no total but every one since has.
The total has gone over in 27 of the games and 24 times it hit the under. If the action is balanced the sportsbooks take their vig or juice and make money so thats what they aim for. In 51 of the Super Bowls ever played there are some trends that we can examine and help you to determine if you want to bet on the game yourself or if you want to use the worlds’ most successful sports betting expert Jon Price to help you get ahead.
The over/under for the Patriots Rams game is currently at 57.5 points with a few Las Vegas Sportsbooks bidded up to 58. This is by far the highest total ever seen in the Super Bowl. When the Falcons lost to the Patriots the total was 57 points. When the Saints played the Indianapolis Colts in the Super Bowl XLIV it was also 57 points. That game happened to go under. Out of 51 Super Bowl Totals and games we examined 10 games have had totals of 50 or more. Six of those have hit the under.
When the Baltimore Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers in New Orleans in 2013 was the start of 5 out of the last 6 games going over the total. The only one well under was the Denver Broncos vs the Carolina Panthers which was under by 9.5 points and was by far the lowest total and lowest overall score out of the last 6 super bowl games. This is something to keep in mind when betting totals and looking at how the bookmakers are pricing this in to entice you to bet the under.

Since Brady has been to 8 Super Bowls with coach Bill Belichick and have gone over half of those times but 3 of their last appearances all went over. Totals of 53 points have appeared 3 times and only hit the over once in those three appearances. Do we remember when they played the Rams as a 14 point underdog?
Atlanta Superdome is Always Under
In both Super Bowls played in Atlanta the total has gone under. This has no bearing on this game but still a trend to take note of. The New England Patriots are currently sitting at -2.5 points but we don’t expect to see a move much higher. Buying points may be a good call in this game and looking at the over.
