There are some Super Bowl prop bet options that bring a special flair to the game each year. One such bet is the “scorigami,” an increasingly popular NFL wager that isn’t widely available the rest of the season.
The idea is simple: With so many ways to tally points in football — touchdowns, extra points, field goals, safeties — there are many possible final score combinations. Sometimes a game results in a final score that has never happened before in NFL history. This is known as a “scorigami.” So what are the odds that the final score of the Super Bowl will result in a scorigami?
Super Bowl 58 did not result in a scorigami, despite the 25-22 overtime win for the Kansas City Chiefs over the San Francisco 49ers. Below, we’ll look at the history of the scorigami.

How many scorigamis have there been?
To date, the NFL has recorded a little over 1,000 different final scores. From the multiple 0-0 games to the historic 73-0 blowout that the Chicago Bears recorded against Washington in 1940, NFL teams have found many, many ways to achieve new scores.
Sports writer Jon Bois coined the term scorigami to describe a never-before-seen final score in the NFL. While it might sound like a rare occurrence, there were nine scorigamis in the 2023 regular season. The most recent scorigami in the NFL came in Week 17, when the Baltimore Ravens beat the Miami Dolphins 56-19 while clinching the top playoff seed in the AFC.
Still, the scorigami is considered a long shot. As such, it typically brings long-shot odds.
Super Bowl scorigami history
Scorigamis have happened three times in the Super Bowl, the most recent being the Seattle Seahawks’ 43-8 win over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 48. The Chiefs were the winning team in a playoff scorigami in 2020, as well as a regular season scorigami against the Raiders in 2021.
In fact, the Chiefs have been a part of at least six scorigamis dating back to 2002, including two in one season in 2018. The 49ers have been a part of 17 scorigamis since 2002, with the most recent coming in 2017.
Indicators that seem to make a scorigami more likely are uncommon two-point scoring plays, like safeties or two-point conversions. Not only do those tend to change the increments of scoring, they can also have a ripple effect, encouraging an opposing coach to go for two later in the game when he might otherwise have kicked for the extra point instead.
