Why Bet This?
Yes, why in the world would anyone bet a coin flip when Super Bowl props betting menu offers so much more? Well for one it’s fun and two it seems to give you an immediate vibe on how your day will go. If I win the coin flip I feel better about my chances of winning the plethora of other Super Bowl picks upon which I have plunked down my cold hard cash. The coin toss is one of the most popular, if not the most popular, prop bet on Super Bowl Sunday. I’m not suggesting you bet the rent on this but live a little and throw a few bucks at it. Here are a few things you should know.

Recent history suggests heads might be the way to go after five of the last seven Super Bowl coin flips have landed that way. Another interesting tidbit is that the NFC entry has won 16 of the last 18 flips and the team that called it right and won the toss has indeed become Super Bowl champions in four of the last six Super Bowls. Win the flip and you’ve got a helluva chance to win the big game…at least recently.

If we look at the entire history of the Super Bowl coin toss we can see things even out a whole lot more with a larger sample. This is the proverbial - and literal - coin flip after all so it should be an even proposition and lo and behold it is. Tails leads heads 25-24 in 49 coin flips just like the mathematicians believe it should. Yet, historically speaking winning the coin toss is not a recipe for success necessarily as the coin flip losers have won 25 Super Bowls while the winners trail closely behind with 24.
