The Super Bowl has concluded with NFL odds ready amongst our Super Bowl betting sites for next year, which includes the coin toss as a heavily popular wager in the Big Game.

One of the most popular Super Bowl prop bet odds is the coin toss result, and it's among the first wagers bettors can sink their teeth into when diving into Super Bowl odds.

It's one of the best Super Bowl novelty props in existence, and typically the first wager that bettors can cash in on that isn't the national anthem. 'Tails never fails' is a popular phrase within culture, but the 2024 Super Bowl saw the opening coin toss land on heads with the Chiefs winning it and the game outright.

Many of our best NFL betting sites were split on the odds given, but both DraftKings and bet365 offered the best value on 'Heads' at even money (+100).

Super Bowl 2024 coin toss prop odds

FanDuel was the first of our best Super Bowl betting sites to post Super Bowl coin toss odds with a pair of markets. Below were the coin toss odds for the 2024 Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.

DraftKings was the first book to release a market based on the team to win the coin toss to also win the game. The Eagles ended a run of eight straight teams that lost the coin toss but won the game in 2023, according to NFL Research, and the Chiefs made it two straight years that the winning team also won the coin toss.

Super Bowl 2024 coin toss props

Heads or tails prop

This one is as simple as it gets, and puts sports bettors in the shoes of the lucky player who gets to make the coin flip call himself: Heads or tails?

You'll want to shop around here to find the best possible odds. There might not be much difference between sportsbooks, but every cent and dollar counts.

Those who choose to bet on the Super Bowl coin toss are quite literally engaging in a 50/50 proposition. There's viable research suggesting a slightly higher chance of the coin landing on the side that is facing up when it is flipped. However, the impact is minimal.

For what it's worth, tails once posted quite the sizzling run, with that side coming up prior to eight of nine Super Bowls.

This Super Bowl coin toss prop varies slightly from the straight heads-or-tails decision. Here, you're trying to predict which team will win the toss. And again, it's a 50-50 shot.
