When the Super Bowl rolls around everyone and their mother seems to be wanting to get in on the action. Even those who didn't watch football much all year seem to turn their attention to the Super Bowl and all it's excitement. If you are a big football fan however, you might want to try your luck at a Super Bowl Pool or lotto to add a little bit more excitement. This sometimes makes a person feel like they are even a bigger part of the action. If you want to do something like this, there are a variety of different choices.
You can for one, buy a square in a Super Bowl pool. There might be someone in your office that is running this pool and this will give you the chance to buy a square that will correspond with the final outcome of the game. On the top line of this board you will see numbers from 0 to 9. Then you will see the same numbers going down the left side of the board. Each person who buys a square will get a number that will correspond to the final score of the big game. You might get the number 3 that is associated with the top line on the board and then 7 that is from the left side. If the top is the AFC team and the left is the NFC team, you would win the bet if the NFC team had a score that ended in 7 and the AFC had a score that ended in 3. For instance it might look like 23-27 as the final score. This means yo would be the winner of the Super Bowl pool.
Another thing you can do is to make a bet on the name of a player who will score the first touchdown in the Super Bowl game. Even the Las Vegas sports books will offer different odds if a player you pick scores the first touchdown.
You can also bet on whether you think that any of the teams will score three times in a row. In some Super Bowls there will be one score and the other will follow with it's own score and the game might continue in this pattern. But, many games will see teams go on runs. One team might score two or three times in row and so on and if you made a bet on this, then you would win the pool.
Another kind of bet you can make is on who is going to win the coin toss. Yes, you can really make a bet on what team will call heads or tails and be successful at winning the toss. This is of course very unpredictable but a lot of football fans will include something like this in their Super Bowl pools to add more excitement to kickoff.
Then of course there is betting on whether the favorite or the underdog will be able to cover the point spread given out by the sports books. This is probably one of the more popular lotto associated games that people will play. This is what makes betting on football so popular by trying to figure out who you think is going to beat the point spread or make the point spread. If you take the favorite to cover the spread and they do then you win. If you take the underdog and say they will keep the favorite from covering the spread then you win and with the bigger odds.
