The Super Bowl is the single-most anticipated, talked about, and watched sporting event in the US. And all that attention means there’s 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 LV in 2021. That number is sure to go up for Super Bowl LVI in 2022.
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, live odds on the game itself when they are set, and some essential Super Bowl betting tips to help guide your handicapping.
You can bet on the Super Bowl at TN online sportsbooks all year long via the NFL futures market. That means you can bet on any NFL team to win the next Super Bowl from the offseason, preseason, and right through the regular season and playoffs.
Tennessee sportsbooks adjust 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. The earlier you can get a bet down on the teams that emerge as real Super Bowl contenders, the better your odds will be.

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 most teams, 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.
To get started, just follow the three steps below. Note: If you already have a funded account with a TN online sportsbook you can skip right to Step 3.
To bet on the Super Bowl with an online sportsbook or sportsbook app in Tennessee you have to sign up for an account first. This requires only a minimal amount of personal information and takes just minutes. You’ll need to provide your:
Simply click on anything that says ‘SIGN UP,’ ‘JOIN,’ or ‘REGISTER’ on the sportsbook’s website or through its app. Enter all your information and look for a space to plug in a promo or bonus code. You’ll find those on this site and they’ll ensure you get the best new player bonus available.
Then, just accept any terms and conditions and submit your information. TN online sportsbooks will verify your age using your Social Security digits and verify your location using geolocation technology. After that, you’ll be ready to take the next step towards betting on Super Bowl LV in Tennessee.
Once you have an account with an online sportsbook in Tennessee, you have to put some money in it to bet on the game. Most sportsbooks have a lot of different deposit methods available. That means everything from cash at certain retail locations, to credit and debit cards, third-party payment processors, and online bank transfers.
Simply click on anything that says ‘DEPOSIT’ or ‘CASHIER’ on the sportsbook or app. Then, pick the most convenient deposit method for you, enter a deposit amount, and follow the prompts.
Most of the time the money will be available immediately and you’ll be ready to take the final step toward betting on Super Bowl LV in Tennessee.
Once you have an account with money in it, betting on the Super Bowl is as simple as browsing through the Super Bowl betting markets and clicking on a line you like. That will instantly create a bet slip where you can plug in the amount you want to bet, add other single bets, or create various parlay bets.
No matter how you structure your bet or bets, you’ll see the potential payout displayed on the bet slip. If that works for you, simply click on anything that says ‘PLACE BET’ or ‘CONFIRM’ at the bottom of the bet slip to go ahead.
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.
This year, for example, DraftKings Sportsbook had a promo for new users where you could double your money if a touchdown is scored in the Big Game. Just sign up for an account, make a minimum deposit of $5, and choose the odds boost when placing your bet before kickoff. The odds are boosted +100 and the max bet is $50.
FanDuel Sportsbook offered a 55/1 odds boost for new users on both Kansas City or Tampa to win. The max bet is $5 and must be placed before kickoff. In other words, you can bet $5 to win $275.
You can also expect TN online sportsbooks to offer odds boosts on all kinds of bets surrounding everything from the coin toss to which player will score first, or score at all.
Add all that to a variety of sports betting operators offering free Super Bowl squares contests, Jackpot Sweepstakes, and Props Pools, and there’s little doubt there will be plenty of value for the taking come Super Bowl Sunday.
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 Tennessee sports betting market has 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.
Odds are currently posted for Super Bowl LV MVP 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 are usually some good prices available on running backs or wide receivers.
The last running back to win Super Bowl MVP was Terrell Davis at Super Bowl XXXII in 1998.
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.
This year’s Super Bowl props include:
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 56:
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 55 Super Bowls and QBs have walked away with 31 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.
Here’s a unique prop that had hit in six straight Super Bowls before last year and 22 of the past 28:
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 in 2020, 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 27-26-2 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 28-24 against the spread. That’s 55% and maybe enough of an edge to make betting the point spread favorite profitable.
The favorite is also 36-18 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 55 Super Bowl games, the over has come in 28 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.
There was limited fan attendance at the 2021 Super Bowl but it’s expected the stands will again be full for Super Bowl 56 in 2022.
NBC has the broadcast rights to Super Bowl LVI. That means all TN NBC 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.
