Super Bowl Coin Toss History Points to Tails Being Correct Side
The Super Bowl is undoubtedly one of the best gambling days of the year. Bettors wager on everything, from the length of the national anthem to the color of the winning team's Gatorade. And yes, people even wager on the outcome of the opening coin toss.
Currently, FanDuel Sportsbook has both heads and tails available at -103. And with that in mind, let's break down some of the recent Super Bowl coin toss history.
Super Bowl Coin Toss History
Over the past six Super Bowls, the pre-game coin toss has come up tails five times. The lone exception was the 2018 Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.
Things even out a bit when expanded to the last 20 seasons, with tails being the correct outcome 12 times.
Overall, out of the 53 total Super Bowls, heads has hit 25 times, while tails has hit 28 times.
Tails has certainly had an edge, both recently and overall, but whether or not that means anything for Super Bowl LIV is anyone's guess.
