Super Bowl LVI is less than one week away, and the anticipation is bursting at the seems for the biggest game in professional sports. It's been a week since we've seen live football, and that's given sports bettors plenty of time to analyze the matchup.
The impending Super Bowl 56 between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals is a sports bettors dream, no different from previous years. FanDuel Sportsbook is offering a ton of great prop bets for the big game, most notably wagering on the pre-game coin toss.
Super Bowl Coin Toss Odds
Given the 50-50 nature of this bet, it should come as no surprise that the odds are currently a dead heat between heads (-104) and tails (-104), according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
This odds are split out to a number of different props that FanDuel Sportsbook is offering on the coin toss. Both the Bengals and Rams possess -104 odds to win the coin toss, in addition to -104 odds for the coin toss call to be correct vs. -104 odds for the call to be incorrect.
Additionally, bettors can wager -104 odds for the coin-toss winner to win the game, and -104 odds for the coin-toss winner to lose the game.
Interestingly though, tails has actually had a significant advantage in recent seasons.
Super Bowl Coin Flip History
Over the past eight Super Bowls, the pre-game coin toss has come up as tails six times. The lone exceptions were last year's 2020 Super Bowl between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs, and the 2018 Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.
Tails has the edge, but that has evened out a bit when looking back further, with the coin toss coming up tails 10 times in the past 20 years.
Whether or not tails can maintain its recent dominance, or heads goes on a run of its own, is anyone's guess.
