The above is another straightforward bet. In Super Bowl 57, the Kansas City Chiefs called tails, which turned out to be the correct choice.

For a bet with a little more going on, you can tie together the result of the flip with the outcome of the game. Here’s what the odds for this prop looked like last year:

On an all-time basis, the coin toss results align very closely with the 50/50 nature of the wager. Heads have come up 28 times for the 57 Super Bowls to date, while tails have been correct the other 29 times.

More recently, the correct call was tails last time out, snapping a streak of two straight years for heads as the right choice. The Chiefs won the flip and the game, becoming the first team to pull off that double play since the Seattle Seahawks at Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014.

How many times has the coin toss winner won the Super Bowl?

On an all-time basis, this has happened 25 times out of 57 Super Bowls. The Chiefs pulled it off last year, becoming the first team to turn the trick since the Seahawks at Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014. Following that, eight straight coin toss winners went on to lose the big game.


Does the Super Bowl coin flip use a special coin?

Yes. Highland Mint makes a special coin for use at the Super Bowl. The coin’s features are a Lombardi Trophy for heads, while the tails side has an image that represents the current edition of the game.

Which team calls the Super Bowl coin flip?  

The “visiting” team gets to make the call. While the Super Bowl generally takes place on a neutral field, there are still home and away designations for the two clubs. Last year, the Rams were the “visitors” and got to call the flip. This is despite the fact that the game took place on the team’s home field at SoFi Stadium.

When is the 2024 Super Bowl?   

Super Bowl 58 will take place on Feb. 11, 2024, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. CBS will be handling broadcast duties, with the game likely to kick off around the usual time of 6:30 p.m. Eastern.
