It’s well-known that the biggest single day for sports-loving punters is Super Bowl Sunday, that capper to another season of NFL football betting.
Super Bowl XLV will certainly prove to be no exception and, with two much-loved franchises in the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers duking it out for the Lombardi Trophy, JackpotFinder-recommended sites such as Sportsbook.com, BetUS and Bookmaker could see record-setting numbers this weekend.
The pointspread itself started at Pittsburgh plus-3.5 in some sportsbooks last Monday but heading into Friday, that line had fallen to a tricky plus-3 to the Steelers at Bookmaker and Sportsbook while BetUS was posting an interesting plus-2.5 line.
Amidst the crazy number of proposition bets available – BetUS has some 1,000 props to wager on, including “Super Bowl Commercials,” “Coach Thanks,” and the classic guess-the-color-of-Gatorade-dumped-on-winning-coach offerings – one of the most popular is that of Super Bowl MVP. Notables from this Sportsbook.com prop include the following.

Naturally, the quarterback is always a good bet, particularly if you’re feeling strongly about one team’s chances. Longshots worth considering must include Troy Polamalu and Charles Woodson, two defenders with the rare ability to dominate a game.
On the other hand, scoring has been high in recent Super Bowls while the last time Green Bay and Pittsburgh met – in 2009 – the final score was 37-36. Also important to note: The numbers show that a combined 59 points have been scored in the past three Super Bowls in the fourth quarter against just 70 points total in quarters one through three. Clearly, if you’re thinking about Super Bowl in-game live betting, you’ll want to play in the final quarter with mind on scores.
For the above Super Bowl XLV betting and far too many more interesting props to be listed here, visit Sportsbook.com, Bookmaker or BetUS this weekend. And enjoy the game!
