Super Bowl Betting 2022: How to Bet on Super Bowl 56 Safely Online

By

The time is right, and teams are locked in for the Super Bowl LVI. This year’s main event will surely be one of the greatest. The Los Angeles Rams will be the second team playing on the home turf after Tampa Bay did last year, and the Bengals will be in the Super Bowl after 30 years. 

So one thing is for sure, you can’t write off the Bengals that easily as they beat the Super Bowl favorite to reach the final stage. Although the Super Bowl Odds favor the LA Rams, this will not be an easy walk in the park.

The popularity of sports betting has increased dramatically in the past few years. American pop culture rapidly moved beyond anti-gambling stigmas, resulting in a massive legal sports betting industry. 

With all the excitement building up among fans and broadcasters, bettors are also looking forward to the event.

Before you jump onto the bandwagon, you need to understand some terms and their meanings.

What do underdog and favorite mean?

First, oddsmakers decide which team will be the favorite and the underdog in a game before releasing a betting line. Favorite teams get a minus sign next to their odds, while underdog teams get a plus sign.

What is meant by spreads?

Point spreads refer to bets on the margins of victory.

Let’s say the Rams are 7-point favorites over the Bengals. Their odds would be -7.

You need the Rams to win by at least eight points to win your wager on them. You cover a bet if the Rams win by at least 8 points. If the Rams win by exactly 7 points, you get your money back.

It’s a loser’s bet if the Rams win by 6 points or fewer (or lose the game straight up).

On the other hand, if you choose the Bengals, which will have (+7), they must either win the game or lose by six points or fewer for your wager to pay off.

 What is a Moneyline?

A Moneyline bet is another way to wager on a favorite or underdog. The result is determined solely by which team will win.

Once again, favorites are given a minus determination, such as -200 or -500. You have to risk $200 to win $100 if a favorite is -200. In a win, you get $100, and in a loss, you lose $200.

It’s because when you bet on favorites, you assume a greater degree of risk.

Whereas an underdog is given a plus sign, such as +200 or +500. A +200 underdog means a $100 bet will get you $200 if they win. And if they lose the game, you lose only the $100 you bet. This is because when betting on underdogs, there’s a greater reward since they are expected to lose.

What is over/under?

Oddsmakers set both the favorite and underdog, as well as the total score for both teams combined in a game. This is known as the over/under. So you bet on whether the game will end Over or Under the total.

How to get started?

The rule of thumb is never to take risks you can’t afford to lose. Unlike some activities, sports betting takes time to master. The odds aren’t always in your favor. That’s why flat betting is the recommended strategy.

The goal is to make the same amount of money on every game with a minimal risk like 1% to 5% of your bankroll. So if you have $100 with you, you should not risk more than $5 per game.
