From the length of the national anthem to the colour of the Gatorade dumped on the winning head coach, online sportsbooks like Sports Interaction let players wager on all the action. Here’s our guide for betting on the Super Bowl.

Getting Started

The first step is creating an account. You don’t want to be relying on Sal from Midtown to book your action and you don’t want to tied down to be forced to pick at least two winners on a parlay card like Pro-Line asks of its clients.

A new player should look for a sportsbook with an excellent reputation for favourable odds and easy withdrawals for its customers. For years, Sports Interaction has been one of the top rated books by websites like Covers and SportsbookReview.

There’s nothing intimidating about setting up your account and the original deposit can be as small or as large as you like. The sign up process is quick and painless, and then you’re free to start making your bets. Click here to set up an account.

Tips on betting the 2018 Super Bowl

There are a number of common mistakes first-time bettors make after they first get set up with their online sportsbook.

Many are tempted to add more than one pick to the wager because of the bigger payouts. But trying to pick winners isn’t always easy. The reward on those five-team parlays is big but the odds of picking all of the games correctly are very small. Stick to one wager on each betting card; the payouts will be smaller but this strategy will lead to winning wagers more often.

Manage your money. Just like planning your meals for the week or your stock investments for the year, successful sports betting requires planning and an understanding of how much you want to spend in a sitting. Don’t get overexcited and blow your bankroll on one play.

Bettors need to outline what is an average bet size or unit and plan according. If $10 feels like a comfortable wager, you don’t want to be betting $50 on a game unless you feel five times more confident than usual. When betting on the Super Bowl, do your research, analyze the stats, and make a smart bet!

Super Bowl LII Prop Picks

First team to score: Philadelphia Eagles +115

Did you know that Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have been held scoreless in the first quarters of each of their seven Super Bowl appearances? Despite having the extra week to prepare for the opposition, Bill Belichick’s teams have yet to use an opening drive to march down the field and put points on the board.

Highest scoring quarter: Fourth quarter +165

The spread indicates a tight game. Our feeling is there will be at least two scoring drives with one team having to try and retake the lead. Sports Interaction has these and many other prop bets for the 2018 Super Bowl.
