Super Bowl LV Betting Offers & Free Bets: Sunday 7th February 2021

The Super Bowl is the NFL season final and comes at the end of the regular season following the play offs. NFL may be a US sporting event but interest around the world is staggering with reportedly up to one billion people watching the event through legal and illegal channels. In the US alone a third of the population (over 120 million people) tune in to watch what has become the greatest all out sporting entertainment spectacle on the planet.

Following the new heights set since Super Bowl 50, Super Bowl 55 (or LV in Roman numerals) promises to go even further. Unfortunately online betting is still not quite completely legal in most of the US and so they largely can’t bet on it, over here however we have no such worries. If you fancy staying up late to watch the Super Bowl live and you are looking for some great odds, offers and freebies to take advantage of then you’ve come to the right page.

Below you will find the latest offers both ante post and on Super Bowl day itself, read further down for info on how to bet on the superbowl, event schedule, history and more.

How to Bet on the Super Bowl

American Football PlayersAmerican football betting terms can be a little alien to those punters who don’t bet on the sport regularly, below we describe some of the common bet types:

  • Money Line – This is basically the match betting market, predict the team to win the game outright.
  • Spread – A form of handicap betting, bet on a team with a +/- points advantage.
  • Over / Under Points – The same principle as over/under goals.
  • 2-Way and 3-Way betting – Two way betting allows you to bet on a either team to win with a draw not possible, three way bets include options for a tie.
  • Proposition Bet – These are special betting markets and include things like winning margin, double result, total points, race to points total, overtime, etc.
  • Score Bets – First, last, anytime touchdown scorers, first or last team to score, scorecast, method of next score, time of touchdown, etc.
  • Team Bets – Total points/goals/touchdowns, win to nil, half & period betting, penalty, punts, timeouts, challenges, etc.
  • Special Bets – Such as longest or shortest touch down or field goal, will a safety be scored, number field goals, defensive touchdowns, conversion success, etc.

2021 Super Bowl Schedule & TV Coverage

American Football PlayerSuper Bowl 55 will be hosted for the third time at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, the 16th time the event has been held in Florida, on Sunday 7th February 2021.

In the US the game will this year be broadcast by CBS with the game start time expected to kick off 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time, this means the game will go live in the UK at 11:30pm GMT.  In the UK the Super Bowl will be shown live free to air on the BBC.

Jenifer Lopez and Shakira headlined the Half Time Show for Super Bowl LIV, Justin Timberlake headlined the 2018 half-time show and Maroon 5 in 2019. 2020 will need to be good to top the previous Half Time shows and in particular the spectacular Super Bowl 50 show headlined by Coldplay and featuring Beyoncé and Bruno Mars.

Last year’s superbowl was watched by an official US audience of 167 million people, this year they are hoping to break that record yet again.  The show will again be sponsored by Pepsi.

Format

American Football HelmetThe SuperBowl is the NFL Championship game, it was renamed the Super Bowl in the mid-1960’s when the NFL and AFL agreed to merge.

The six highest teams in the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC) enter the playoffs at the end of their 16 game regular season that runs from Labor Day until Christmas.  This consists of the 4 highest teams in each division on points along with two wild card teams who enter with the highest win-loss record.

The highest two teams skip the first play off round with second and third placed teams taking on the wild cards.  The divisional winners then enter at the second round stage, refereed to as the Divisional Playoff games, with home advantage given to the league winner and runner-up.

The Third and final round is called the Conference Championship Game, the winner of each championship game then progresses to the Super Bowl.

Often seen as much as a corporate event as a Championship final the Super Bowl, teams often arrive in the host city over a week in advance as the media hype increases.  Tickets officially cost upwards of $500 and unofficially can fetch $5000 or more. A TV advert during the game costs upwards of $5.6M for 30 seconds.

Super Bowl Sunday in the US has a holiday feel to it similar to Thanksgiving.  The game itself is no different to any other NFL game, including sudden death rules if the game is tied after normal time.  If any points are scored in overtime the game immediately ends.

This happened for the first time in 2017 when the New England Patriots recorded the most dramatic comeback of all time coming from 28-3 down to equalise 28-28 with Atlanta Falcons in the final quarter.  Tom Brady secured his, and NE Patriots, fifth Super Bowl title, and his 4th MVP award, by taking the game into overtime, for the first time ever, where the Patriots wasted little time to bundle over and win 34-28.

Super Bowl Stadiums

2021 Venue – Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Florida

Opened in August 1998 the Raymond James Stadium, home of the Tampa Buccaneers, will host it’s third Super Bowl in 2021.  Florida will now have hosted a record 16 Super Bowl games.

The stadium is used during the regular season by both the Buccaneers in the NFL and the South Forida Bulls college team. The venue has a seating capacity that is expendable to nearly 75,000 people for the Super Bowl (65,000 normally).

The Raymond James Stadium cost just over $168.5 Million when it was built from 1996-1998 and also hosts the Tampa Bay Vipers in the new XFL league, running since 2018.

Outside of American Football the Stadium is also used for high profile concerts, having seen U2, Kenny Chesney, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, NSYNC, and One Direction.; to name but a few.

St Petersberg based investment bank Raymond James Financial bought the naming rights in 1998 and have extended this several times and will remain the rights owner until at least 2028.  The stadiums most notable feature is the 31 meter long 43-ton steel and concrete pirate ship replica in the end zone at the north end.  Whenever Tampa score it fires its cannons once for each point.  The stadium was also given a face lift in 2016.

Having held three previous Super Bowl’s this is a veteran venue.  It was, however, the SoFi Stadium in California that was due to host Super Bowl LV but it wasn’t ready in time so the league unanimously voted to move it to Tampa.

The 2022 Super Bowl is also due to be played at the SoFi Stadium at last and will be the new home of the Los Angeles Rams.

History of the Super Bowl

American FootballAmerican football was established in the late 1800’s slowly developing, as a college game, from the old world elitist game of Rugby into it’s own unique game style.  The modern game and many of the rules were developed by Walter Camp a former Yale player in the 1880’s.

Camp secured changes to the rules that reduced player numbers from 15 to 11, removed the scrum in favour of the snap, introduced the gridiron format (originally set at 5 yards, now 10 yards) and established the forward passing rule.

Up to the end of WWI the sports was largely a college sport.  At this time the sport was seen as very brutal and following threats from president Roosevelt to ban the sport it underwent an overhaul resulting in the establishment of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).  The NCAA oversaw better safety, protective clothing and more stringent penalties for foul play.

The National Football League (NFL) was formed in 1920, it quickly set itself apart from the college leagues with a bigger focus on passing.

It wasn’t until after the second world war that American football took off in the hearts and minds of the nation helped largely by the new invention of television.  At this time two rival leagues existed, the NFL and the American Football League (AFL), each with their own championship games.

In 1966 the leagues agreed to merge with the winner of each division playing in one championship game, renamed the Super Bowl.  The first superbowl was played in the 1966/7 season and was won by NFL team Green Bay Packers who beat AFL team the Kansas City Chiefs by 35 points to 10 at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.  The game was watched live by 62,000 people and over 50 million tuned on TV.
