We take a look at Super Bowl coin toss history and whether it is worth betting on, as a surprising number are wagering on this peculiar betting market.

Super Bowl LV between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers is just days away. The Chiefs are currently 3-point favorites to win back-to-back Super Bowls and there is already huge money being wagered on the biggest day in the Football calendar.

One of the most significant moments of Super Bowl day? The coin toss. Heads or tails determines which team gets the ball first – a second of anticipation until the coin lands and the big game can get underway.

Believe it or not, the coin toss has resulted in huge winning and losing bets over the years. For example, FanDuel paid out $200,000 on bets on tails before the game even kicked off. There was plenty wagered on heads too…just not as much as on tails. The $200,000 payout gives you an idea of just how much is being bet on a flip of a coin.

It’s very interesting to take a look at Super Bowl coin toss history. From the 54 Super Bowls so far, 29 have resulted in tails and 25 in heads. Heads had an impressive run of 5 years in a row from 2009-2013 while the Super Bowl coin toss has landed on tails in six of the last seven years.

As we all know, Super Bowl coin toss history is completely random as there is virtually a 50/50 chance of the coin landing on heads or tails. However, according to Vince Bohbot (executive vice president at The Highland Mint in Florida, where the Super Bowl coin is made), the weight of each side of the coin can vary ever so slightly depending on the coin’s design.

The obvious answer to why sports bettors love to bet on the Super Bowl coin toss result is because of the immediate results. Similar to betting on red or black on a roulette wheel at the casino, you will know whether your bet has won or lost instantly. If you are betting on the coin toss result this year, a look at Super Bowl coin toss history might sway your decision!

As expected, the Super Bowl coin toss odds are slightly lower than even money (at -103) for either side. DraftKings even offer the chance to bet on a team to win coin toss AND game:
