You can see that the favorites have been a historical money maker for bettors.  That is probably whatthe lines kept getting higher and higher.  However, since the mid-90s the tables have turned and underdog backers have been the winners.  What’s amazing is that in the mid-90s the better teams were favored by double digits.  In today’s NFL that’s something you probably won’t see.  Teams generally aren’t favored by more than a touchdown on a neutral field, and nearly two touchdowns would be like the best team taking on the worst team at home.

Scoring is also up in today’s game, which is why this year will feature the highest total in the history of the Super Bowl.  And again, the under was the hot bet early on, but the over has been the trend lately.

Just remember that past performance doesn’t necessary correlate to future results, so just because underdogs have been profitable the last few Superbowls doesn’t mean they will once again win outright again this season.
