Super Bowl LIV Betting Offers & Free Bets – Sunday 2nd February 2020

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 54 (or LIV in Roman numerals) promises to go even further. Unfortunately online betting is still not quite 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.

2020 Super Bowl Schedule & TV Coverage

American Football PlayerSuper Bowl 54 will be hosted for the sixth time at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, the 15th time the event has been held in Florida, on Sunday 2nd February 2020.

In the US the game will this year be broadcast by Fox 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.

Lady Gaga headlined the Half Time Show for Super Bowl LI, Justin Timberlake headlined the 2018 half-time show and Maroon 5 in 2019, with many artists turning down the opportunity based on the recent controversy surrounding players standing for the National Anthem.

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 $8M 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

2020 Venue – Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, Florida

Opened in August 1987 the Hard Rock Stadium, new home of the Miami Dolphins, will host it’s sixth Super Bowl in 2020, making it the second most used stadium for the event after the Mercedes-Benz Superdrome in Louisianna.  Florida will now have hosted a record 15 Super Bowl games.

The stadium is used during the regular season by both the Dolphins in the NFL and Miami Hurricanes football team. The venue has a seating capacity that is expendable to nearly 80,000 people  for the Super Bowl (65,000 normally).  It also has parking for nearly 25,000 vehicles.

The Hard Rock Stadium cost just over $115 Million when it was built from 1985-1987 and also holds the Orange Bowl annaul college football game, running since 1935.

Outside of American Football the Stadium also played host to the 2019 Miami Open tennis event and is used for high profile concerts, having seen Paul McCartney, The Who, The Police, Genesis, Guns N’ Roses, The Rolling Stone, Elton John, Billy Joel, Madonna, Rod Steward, U2, Beyonce and Taylor Swift; to name but a few.

Hard Rock bought the naming rights in 2016 but the stadium has been through several name changes in its history, initially called the Joe Robbie Stadium, the owner of the Miami Dolphins at the time it was built.  The stadium has been called Dolphin or Dolphins stadium on three occasions, and this is the colloquial name that seems to have stuck.

Having held five previous Super Bowl’s this is a veteran venue.  The Hard Rock stadium however was nearly removed for further consideration following the 2007 game where spectators were soaked in one of the wettest SBs of all time.  Renovations were made including a open-air roof canopy to protect fans from the elements.

The 2021 Super Bowl is also due to be played in Florida, this time the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which will host the event for the third time.

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.
