Where To Bet On Super Bowl 51

By Angelo Montilla

The Super Bowl is more than just a football game. It’s a spectacle, a celebration, a chance to watch the two best teams battle for National Football League supremacy.

Above all though, it’s also the largest single-game sports betting event on a yearly basis. Regardless if you’re well versed when it comes to the NFL or just a newcomer to the football betting scene, massive amounts of money.

Betting on the Super Bowl can be fun if you win, but it’s no laughing matter if you’re not prepared. Tom Brady can afford to crack a smile as he’s always ready for what awaits. 

If you’re in Vegas, there are unlimited options in terms of where to cast your Super Bowl bets. The Aria is a good option, where bettors can place their wagers in the comfortable environment of the 10,000-square-foot race and sportsbook. There are two nine-by-16-foot big screens, which are surrounded by 90 monitors throughout the sportsbook to give the area an inviting feel. 

Bettors in Vegas will also enjoy the atmosphere at Caesars Palace, which offers six 12-by-15-foot big screen TVs as well as 12 50-inch plasmas for all your viewing pleasures. Known for being dark and atmospheric, the Caesars sportsbook is Las Vegas’ mega-book.

Betting from the comfort of your own home? Don’t worry; several leading online sportsbooks have you covered.

If you’re new to online betting, a perfect first option is Bovada — a popular sportsbook now celebrating five years of success. Right from the opening kickoff, Bovada has you covered with futures betting lines from who will win the AFC or NFC Championship to predicting the Super Bowl winner. Bovada is easy to navigate and discovering enticing Super Bowl odds are also easy to discover. The site offers bettors the latest odds right up to opening kickoff, which is also an engaging feature for any new customer to the site.

Another option is BetOnline, which is also a global online sportsbook leader that attracts many football bettors, especially come Super Bowl time. If you’re looking for another site easy to navigate and simple to place wagers, BetOnline is the way to go.

So when is the perfect time to make Super Bowl wagers? Bettors with a little more confidence will put their money on early-season future wagers. For example, the New England Patriots opened the 2016-17 season at +900 to win the Super Bowl. The Pats, who topped the AFC with a 14-2 record, are now +160 favorites to win it all — meaning anyone that placed their money down when the club was at +900 will be cashing in big if New England wins it all.

There are several ways to place wagers on the Super Bowl, but maybe the most popular among bettors is the point spread — a format that determines the margin of victory for the favorite team and whether or not they can cover.

Another popular way to place your bet is a money line wager, which allows anyone to simply pick the winner of the Super Bowl. Many sportsbooks will set a total points projection where bettors can wager on whether or not the two clubs will combine to go over that amount or if it will finish under the projection. This is called the over/under.

Are you ready to put your money on Super Bowl 51? Here’s a list of the leading online sportsbooks to consider before placing your wagers.
