Since Super Bowl odds are the most popular type of football odds it makes sense that Super Bowl halftime odds are the most popular halftime odds. So many more people are watching the Super Bowl and that makes Super Bowl halftime odds popular. Super Bowl halftime odds are set in a very basic way.
The oddsmaker looks at the halftime score, the closing Super Bowl odds for the game and makes the Super Bowl halftime line based on this information. The Super Bowl halftime odds are made based almost entirely on the score and the closing line on the game. Rarely is anything else considered.
Unless there is a serious injury it is unlikely the Super Bowl halftime odds will be influenced by anything other than straight mathematics. As you look at the Super Bowl halftime line you should remember a couple of things. The public is going to bet very similar to how they bet the opening Super Bowl odds.
They are going to take the favorite and the over in Super Bowl halftime odds. If the favorite for the game is trailing they are going to be even more enamored with that team. If the favorite is winning big, the public will still lean toward that team in Super Bowl halftime odds.
Rarely will the public want to get involved taking the underdog against the Super Bowl halftime line. The wise guys really don’t get too involved with Super Bowl odds overall and they don’t do a whole lot at the half either.
You might see the odds move a little bit if wise guys see some value but normally the Super Bowl is a game the wise guys stay away from. The Super Bowl is only one game to them and rarely will they see a lot of value, so it is more public bettors that get involved betting the Super Bowl.
As you look at the odds for Super Bowl XLIII don’t forget that you can bet the Super Bowl halftime line. It gives you another chance to bet on the biggest game of the season.
