Established in 1967, the Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), and is also one of the biggest events of the year for sports bettors. The big game closes out a month-long postseason, and features a matchup between the champions of the NFL’s two conferences, the NFC and AFC. The Super Bowl is the single biggest event on the American sports calendar and attracts a global audience of over 200 million.
The NFL is made up of 32 teams, who compete in four divisions in each conference. The winner of each division qualifies for the NFL playoffs, along with the three non-division winning teams with the best regular-season record. Playoff matchups are determined by seeding, with the highest seeded teams clashing with the lowest seeded teams in each playoff round.
Now established as an annual February tradition, the Super Bowl also provides an array of betting options for every type of sports bettor, regardless of experience. In addition to typical game line wagering, the Super Bowl offers a unique opportunity for sports bettors to get in on the action off the field, with wagering on every aspect of the game from the national anthem to the color of the celebratory Gatorade shower.
