Super Bowl LII Smart Wagering Moves on D-Day

Super Bowl LII Smart Wagering Moves on D-Day
Thinking about betting Super Bowl LII, but haven't made any concrete plans to do so? It's not too late to open an online sportsbook account at Bovada or dust off the one you haven't used in a while, but it's definitely time to get moving!

Bovada Super Bowl LII Welcome Bonus

First things first. If you don’t have a Bovada account, you can literally sign up today and bet Super Bowl LII with their money. For all new accounts, Bovada is offering a 50% bonus of the initial deposit up to $250. In other words, deposit $500, get $250. Deposit $200, get $100. What’s even better is that you don’t have to wait for the bonus money as Bovada guarantees the funds will be available and ready for wagering within 30 minutes of the deposit.

Wagering snapshot

With the 6:30 ET kickoff rapidly approaching, there are decisions to be made. In true Super Bowl form, Bovada offers perhaps the most robust menu of wagering options from spreads, totals, props and all the variations of those standard bets. Here’s a quick reset of the basics:

  • Spread: New England -5
  • Moneyline: New England -180
  • Total: 49
  • MVP Favorite: Tom Brady (-110)

Props and Gimmicks

If these options are too vanilla, there are countless other ways to bet Super Bowl LII including the totals and spreads by quarter and by half. There’s also legitimate props such as TD and field goal odds, player rushing/passing/receiving odds, defense/special teams props, and much more. If conventional handicapping and betting isn’t your thing, there’s also an amusing roster of gimmicks that include the coin toss, length of the national anthem, Pink’s hair color, and other frivolities to enjoy.

Best Bets

With Super Bowl parties to attend and so little time left to wager, I totally understand the need to ride somone else’s coattails. I’ve been looking at this stuff for at least two weeks, so here are some of my best bets. 

  • Spread: TAKE Eagles +5
  • Total: TAKE Under 49

Best Gimmick/Prop Action:

  • Pink will forget/omit a word from National Anthem ( TAKE YES @+350)
  • Will either team score 3 unanswered times in the game? (TAKE NO @ +140)
  • Alternate Total (TAKE UNDER 40.5 @ +215)
  • Margin of victory (TAKE Eagles by 1-6 points @+425)

There’s nothing better than a little wagering action while you enjoy the Super Bowl, but the clock is ticking. Bovada’s easy-to-use interface and plethora of wagering options are sure to make LII a memorable experience and the 50% welcome bonus for newbies is the icing on the cake. Good luck and smart wagering to all!
