Super Bowl Coin Toss Betting Guide

FanDuel is offering -104 odds on Heads and Tails. BetMGM is offering -105 odds. All sportsbooks will offer coin-flip odds, so be sure to shop around for the best line.

The coin toss will happen about three minutes before the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers kickoff. The approximate time will be 6:30 p.m. ET.

To win with -105 odds, you must bet $105 to win $100. Betting on the coin toss is simple and offers quick gratification. Betting on the coin toss has become one of the most popular and lucrative Super Bowl prop bets.

Why Bet on the Super Bowl Coin Toss?

The outcome is stark and unambiguous, and the odds are 50-50. There are no outside factors like a pass caught after it bounces off a defender’s helmet, an injury to a key player, a back-breaking turnover, or a late score to mess up the “Under.” It’s a simple toss of a coin — Heads or Tails.

And the excitement of the bet is immediate. Bettors don’t have to wait out a three-hour game to see whether Heads or Tails wins. Bettors don’t need to know advanced analytical information. You place the bet and know the outcome before the game begins.

San Francisco has won five Super Bowl coin flips for bettors who like to make wagers based on previous outcomes. Only the Dallas Cowboys have won more, with six victories.

It’s San Francisco’s Call

When the captains stroll out to midfield at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Super Sunday (Feb. 11), the San Francisco 49ers will call the coin toss. The NFL rotates the home and visiting teams each year. The NFC is the visiting team this year, so the 49ers will make the Heads or Tails call.

As expected with 50-50 ventures, the coin toss results reflect that math. Heads have won 27 times (47 percent), and Tails has won 30 times (53 percent). Last year, the Kansas City Chiefs called Tails and won the coin toss — and eventually, they won the Super Bowl over the Philadelphia Eagles.

The coin toss winner can either receive the opening kickoff or defer to the second half. When a team defers, it will receive the second-half kickoff. The Chiefs chose to defer last year.

The Chiefs were down 24-14 at halftime and used the second-half kickoff to go on a 75-yard touchdown drive that put them back into the game. The Eagles’ 38-35 loss ended a streak of eight consecutive teams that lost the coin toss but went on to win the game.

More Notable Super Bowl Coin Toss Facts

The Chiefs’ Tails call ended a two-game Heads streak. Heads also had won four of five Super Bowl coin tosses before last year. Heads enjoys the longest winning streak — five times. Tails has had three, four-game winning streaks.

Previous Heads/Tails results have no bearing on this year’s coin toss. Coin tosses are 50-50 each time. Tails could win 10 consecutive times; on the 11th flip, the odds are the same — 50-50. There are some conspiracy theories about the weight of the commemorative gold coin favoring Tails, but there is no science to back that notion.

Here’s a quirky note about the coin toss: Tom Brady, who won six Super Bowls with the New England Patriots and a seventh Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was 0-7 in the coin toss in his team’s victories.

Another quirk: Since 2008, when coin toss winners were allowed to defer, coin toss winners chose to take the ball to start the second half in 12 of the past 13 Super Bowls. Only New Orleans in 2010 won the coin toss and chose to take the ball to start the game. The Saints won that game.

Coin Toss Prop Bets

Sportsbooks offer odds on the same team winning the coin toss and the Super Bowl.

Winning the coin toss hasn’t been a stepping stone to winning the game. Just 26 of 57 teams (45 percent) have won both the coin toss and the game.

FanDuel is offering the Chiefs at +310 and the 49ers at +260 to win the coin toss and the game.

Another bet to consider: Will the 49ers correctly call the coin toss? The odds are -104 at most sportsbooks.
