The Super Bowl is more than just another football game. And more than just the National Football League’s championship game. It’s the single-most anticipated, talked about, and watched sporting event in the US. And all that attention means there’s more more money bet on the Super Bowl than any other event in sports.
From handshake bets with buddies to the massive betting handle at legal and regulated sportsbooks across the country, billions are bet on the Super Bowl every year. The American Gaming Association estimated Americans bet close to $7 billion on Super Bowl LIV in 2020; that number is sure to go up for Super Bowl LV in 2021.
Here you’ll find exactly how you can bet on the next Super Bowl right from Tennessee. That includes current futures odds on the next Super Bowl champion, odds on the Titans getting there, live odds on the game itself when it’s set, and some essential betting tips to help guide your handicapping.
As long as the Tennessee Titans are still in contention for a playoff spot or still in the playoffs, a Super Bowl win is still within the realm of possibilities. That means no matter how slim the Titans’ chances are, if there’s a chance at all, you can bet on the team to win it all in the NFL futures markets at legal TN online sportsbooks.
These are the best current posted odds for the Tennessee Titans in the NFL futures markets at top TN online sportsbooks. Click on the odds you like to go directly to the online sportsbook and start the betting process
You can bet on the Super Bowl at TN online sportsbooks all year round through the NFL futures market. That means you can bet on any NFL team to win the next Super Bowl from the offseason and preseason right through the regular season and playoffs.
Tennessee sportsbooks change the odds according to each team’s probability of winning it all, but you can lock in the currently posted odds whenever you place a futures bet. That often means the earlier you can get a bet down on the teams that emerge as real Super Bowl contenders, the better your odds will be.
No matter what happens, you’ll get paid at the odds as they were when you placed the bet if the team goes on to win the Super Bowl. You can find the current posted Super Bowl futures odds at the top TN online sportsbooks in our odds feed below.

As you can see, the NFL futures market includes moneyline odds on all teams still in contention to win the Super Bowl. There are no “true” favorites to win the Super Bowl before the playoffs are set. That means, for most of the year, you’ll see positive odds in the futures market for all 32 NFL teams.
The size of that number can vary greatly. However, it means you’ll almost always get a decent price on just about every team, even the teams you consider to be favorites to win it all.
The number you see with positive odds represents how much you stand to win, plus your bet back, for every $100 you bet. For example, if you bet $100 on the Tennessee Titans to win the Super Bowl at +2800 today, you’d walk away with $2,900 if they win Super Bowl LV in February 2021.
Let’s imagine the Tennessee Titans win the AFC Championship game and the Seattle Seahawks come out of the NFC to match up in Super Bowl LV. The betting lines posted for Super Bowl LV at most sportsbooks will probably look something like this:
The first thing you’re looking at is the spread. The odds on spread bets are what you see in brackets beside it.
In this scenario, the Titans are 6.5-point underdogs. That means bets on the Titans will win if they win Super Bowl LV outright or lose by six points or less. Seattle at -6.5 means spread bets on the Seahawks only win if Seattle wins by a touchdown or more. The -110 odds indicate how much ($110) you’ll have to bet to win $100, plus your bet back.
The next number is called the moneyline. Moneyline betting is about picking winners straight up, with no spread factored in. If you see a number with a plus sign in front of it, you’re looking at the underdog. The number then represents how much you can win for every $100 that you bet.
A $100 bet on the Tennessee Titans at +250, as you see above, would pay $250, plus your $100 back if they win Super Bowl LV.
If you see a number with a minus sign in front of it, you’re looking at the favorite. The number then represents how much you must bet to possibly win $100, plus your bet back. A $195 bet on the Seattle Seahawks at -195 would pay $100, plus your $195 back if they win Super Bowl LV.
Finally, you can see the totals line, with the odds on totals bets in brackets beside it. Here, you’re betting that the total combined score by both teams will end up over or under that number. Once again, the odds tell you how much you need to bet to win $100, plus your bet back.
Here we have a totals line of 54.5 which means overs will win when the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks combine to score 55 points or more. Under bets will win when the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks combine to score 54 points or less. The half-point means there will not be a push, since there are no half points awarded in football.

Major bet types available for Super Bowl LV in Tennessee include:
The marketing and promotions teams at TN sportsbooks are expected to pull out the big guns when it comes to the big game. That means a variety of Super Bowl promos will likely be available.
These promos will run the gamut from deposit match bonuses leading up to the game to odds boosts, free games, risk-free bets, and free bets surrounding the Super Bowl itself.
In the past, market leaders like DraftKings Sportsbook have run limited-time Super Bowl deposit offers giving new players up to $600 worth of risk-free bets.
FanDuel Sportsbook has offered a Super Bowl odds boost that included 53:1 moneyline odds on the game. Plus, BetMGM had a Super Bowl 2020 promo that offered 200:1 odds.

The Tennessee sports betting market will launch with online and app betting only. That means you won’t be able to go to a retail sportsbook to watch and bet on Super Bowl LV in Tennessee.
But it also means you’ll be able to watch and bet on Super Bowl LV anywhere you like, including the following list of the three best Super Bowl bars in the state. Bring your phone on game day, with any number of TN sports betting apps installed, and you can bet on Super Bowl LV to your heart’s content.
Nashville Underground is on every legitimate list of the best places to watch the Super Bowl in Nashville. That’s because the multi-level bar shows the Super Bowl on all it’s 40-plus TV screens, including the massive LED dance floor. There’s also Super Bowl food and drink specials.
High Point Pub has been running its annual Super Bowl Sunday Funday party for close to 30 years, making it one of the best places to watch the Super Bowl in Memphis. There’s fun, food, drinks, and football. With your favorite TN mobile sports betting app installed on your phone, what more do you need?
Drake’s Knoxville has emerged as one of the best places to watch the Super Bowl in Knoxville. “Come Play,” as they say. Last year Drake’s Super Sunday Dine + Dash Super Bowl promo saw patrons walk away with a $25 gift card for every $25 they spent on food on game day. Plus it was 1/2 off beer towers all day.
Once the game participants are set, the Super Bowl LV MVP odds will be posted at TN sportsbooks. Like most futures markets, there isn’t likely to be an odds on favorite to win the Super Bowl MVP award outside of each team’s QB.
A list of the last 10 Super Bowl MVP winners shows the winning quarterback will walk away with MVP more often than not:
That means the odds of the starting QBs will likely be among the lowest available. It also means there will probably be a good price on a running back like Derrick Henry if the Tennessee Titans get to the Super Bowl.
The last running back to win Super Bowl MVP was Terrell Davis at Super Bowl XXXII in 1998. That means there should be some value on running backs in the Super Bowl MVP futures market, even for teams that are as running-back dependent as the Titans are.
Prop bets are where Super Bowl betting fun gets going, as you can bet on the games within the game—and even some outside of it. That usually means betting on teams and players to hit, or not hit, specific statistical milestones during the game. Of course, come Super Bowl Sunday, it can also mean betting on all kinds of unusual props surrounding the Super Bowl and Super Bowl festivities.
If TN regulators approve, you might be able to bet on the national anthem, halftime show, and even the coin toss. Either way, Super Bowl props are likely to include things like:
There’s so much to bet on with regards to the Super Bowl it’s hard to pinpoint the best bets. That said, here are three bets you might want to have a good look at for Super Bowl LV:
Betting the Super Bowl moneyline is so easy it has to be considered one of the best Super Bowl bets. You simply pick the winner of the game and lock in your bet at the currently posted moneyline odds.
Unfortunately, payouts can be low on big favorites and you may have to lay out a big sum to win a small one. That’s why you should always look for Super Bowl odds boost promos to help you out. Also, if you like the underdog, make sure you shop around for the best price to ensure betting on an upset pays off.
Let’s imagine it’s Titans vs. Seahawks in Super Bowl LV. The moneyline might say Seahawks -125 and Titans +105.
That means if you bet Seattle to win, you’ll have to bet $125 to win $100, plus your bet back. It also means every $100 you bet on the Titans will get you $105, plus your bet back.
Over the past ten years, the winning QB has won the Super Bowl MVP award seven times. There have only been 54 Super Bowls and QBs have walked away with 30 Super Bowl MVP awards.
In other words, betting on a QB to win Super Bowl MVP is a good idea, particularly since you should be able to get some pretty decent odds on these bets when the market first opens. The thing is, sportsbooks rarely make anyone an odds-on favorite to win the award, so there’s a decent price to be had on just about anyone.
Let’s imagine again that it’s Titans vs. Seahawks in Super Bowl LV. Seattle will likely be the favorite and even though that’ll make Russell Wilson the favorite to win Super Bowl MVP, you should be able to get positive moneyline odds on that bet, making it a really good one.
Here’s a unique prop that has hit in six straight Super Bowls and 22 of the past 27:
If the game is expected to be a blowout you might even get some decent odds on either team to score in the last three and a half minutes.
Then, just hope it’s closer than expected, and someone scores late, just like the Chiefs did last year, sealing a comeback win with a TD with less than two minutes to play.
The Super Bowl brings a huge variety of betting options with it. You can’t bet on them all, or at least it doesn’t make sense to, so you’re going to have to make some tough choices.
Start by having a look at the most popular Super Bowl bets, including the point spread, moneyline, and totals. Then, look at the stats surrounding these bets to see if there are any trends you can capitalize on.
What you’ll find is that favorites are 27-25-2 against the spread in the history of the Super Bowl. Take out the two pushes and one pick ’em game and you’ll find favorites are 28-23 against the spread. That’s 55% and maybe enough of an edge to make betting the point spread favorite profitable.
The favorite is also 36-17 straight up in these Super Bowls, suggesting the moneyline favorite is also a good bet. Just be careful of pricing here, as the big risk may not be worth the small reward on Super Bowl moneyline favorites.
Finally, you’ve got the over/under, which it ends up as a bit of a toss-up. In the past 53 Super Bowl games, the over has come in 27 times and the under 26.
Here are the Super Bowl trends you’ll want to remember:
Of course, the stats won’t show you much of an edge here, and you might have to take a big risk for a very small reward even if you find one. That means you need to dig into researching the two Super Bowl teams to find great betting opportunities.
Oftentimes, this means betting props when you find good prices on the bets your research tells you to place. Look closely at all the positional matchups, recent play, quality of postseason opponents, and the odds on all player and team props and these opportunities should present themselves.
You can also look around for opinions on the teams and just about every Super Bowl betting line available. Just make sure you get this information from trusted sources. Then, keep in mind these three basic Super Bowl betting tips:
Here’s a look at our top five biggest blunders in Super Bowl history:
The Seattle Seahawks had the ball on the Patriots one-yard line, down 28-24, on 2nd down, with 20 seconds left. They had two timeouts and legendary RB Marshawn Lynch, one of the NFL’s best bets to score from the one.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll called a pass, Malcolm Butler intercepted it and the Pats won. Carroll is still around, but Seahawks fans crucified him for not handing the ball to Marshawn and his role in one of the Super Bowl’s biggest blunders.
The Carolina Panthers tied up Super Bowl XXXVIII against the New England Patriots at 29-29 with just over a minute to play. Then, kicker Jon Kasay kicked off out of bounds.
Tom Brady and the Pats got the ball at the 40 and went on to kick a game-winning 41-yard field goal, making Kasay the man to blame for one of the Super Bowl’s biggest blunders.
The Green Bay Packers let the Denver Broncos waltz in the endzone for the go-ahead TD from the one-yard line with under two minutes to play in Super Bowl XXXII.
The plan was to leave enough time on the clock for a game-tying drive. When that failed, the Broncos won the Super Bowl and Green Bay was responsible for one of the Super Bowl’s biggest blunders.
This would have topped the list had the Dallas Cowboys not beat the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVII.
Still, Cowboys defensive lineman Leon Lett returning a fumble recovery for a would-be touchdown, then celebrating early enough to let Don Beebe knock the ball out of his hands before he reached the end zone, is one of the Super Bowl’s biggest blunders.
Sure, the Buffalo Bills lost three consecutive Super Bowls, but it all started with the Super Bowl’s biggest blunder. With the New York Giants leading 20-19 late in the fourth quarter, Bills kicker Scott Norwood lined up for a 47-yard field goal to win the game.
It went wide right, the Giants won, and even though they returned to the Super Bowl the next year, and the year after that, the Bills never recovered.
Betting on the Super Bowl is perfectly legal in Tennessee, as long as you bet with a licensed and regulated Tennessee online and mobile sportsbook. The state legalized sports gambling in 2020 and the first licensed TN online sportsbooks and mobile sports betting apps now live.
That’s a good question and one we expect the NFL to answer well ahead of Super Bowl LV. Part of the way through the season, some stadiums were already allowing fans to attend regular-season games in limited numbers. That’s a sign the NFL hopes to get back to some type of normalcy as soon as possible and that the stands may be filled again ahead of the Super Bowl.
CBS has the broadcast rights to Super Bowl LV. That means the following list of TN CBS affiliates should carry the game:
Remember the Titans, or at least when the Titans made it to Super Bowl XXXIV?
It was the year of the Music City Miracle when the Titans won the AFC Championship game on a kickoff return that featured a huge lateral and 75-yard run with just seconds left.
It marked the Titans only Super Bowl appearance to date, and they fell short in the big game, losing 23-16 to the St. Louis Rams.
There’s never been a Super Bowl in Nashville where the Tennessee Titans play. There isn’t likely to be one there either until they build a fancy new stadium with a much bigger capacity, renovate some of the old hotels in town and build new ones, or find a way to make the weather a little more tropical in February.
The Vegas odds on the Super Bowl are the odds you’ll find on the game at Las Vegas Sportsbooks. The ones that had a decades-long head start on the rest of the country’s legal sports betting scene. The Super Bowl betting odds you’ll find at TN sportsbooks are pretty much the same as the Vegas odds. It’s when the lines move at different sportsbooks that you’ll find differences.
