How To Bet On The Super Bowl Coin Toss At DraftKings
Betting on the coin toss is similar to betting on any moneyline wager. Fans take either Heads or Tails on their betting slip and are paid out depending on the finished result. Odds currently sit at +100 on both sides of the slip.
The same +100 can be found on which team will win the coin toss between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs. Bettors can double up on wins if they predict both the toss result and the winning team.
While this is literally a coin toss, and past history does not play a factor in this random event, there are some interesting historical tidbits to make note of. In six of the last nine Super Bowls, Heads was the winning coin toss.
Since Rodger Goodell has been named NFL Commissioner, the NFC Champion has won the coin toss in 12 of 17 Super Bowls. So if we were to base this coin toss result off of past evidence (which we should not because it is a coin toss), then taking Philly to win the coin toss and the results being head is a wise bet.
Of course, this isn’t the only way to wager on the coin toss when betting on the Super Bowl.

More Ways To Bet On The Coin Toss
There are odds available for KC to win the coin toss and Super Bowl, as well as for Philly to win the coin toss and Super Bowl. This is another element fans can win big by betting on the coin toss. Yes for both teams have + odds with KC seeing +300 and Philly seeing +250 respectively.
There are some merits for DraftKings to push short odds on No for both teams. The winner of the Super Bowl coin toss has lost the game for the last eight straight Super Bowls. While this specific stat is also random due to it being a toss-up, there is another reason that could lead to why this has been the result.
The winner of the coin toss often defers, giving the opponent the opening drive and a chance at scoring early on in the game. Both the Eagles and the Chiefs are known for deferring and will likely do so in the Super Bowl.
Philly has won the coin toss 13 times this season and has deferred all 13. Kansas City won eight times and deferred seven. Both these teams also dominate with first-quarter EPA per play, with the Chiefs being number one in the league and the Eagles being number two.
Whichever team has the opening drive is likely to score early. Fans can also use whom they think will win the coin toss to bet on things like first to score. If both teams defer and score early, this is a strategic hedge.
The NFL coin toss is just another aspect of Super Bowl betting available for fans. Fans engage heavily in the coin toss, even starting a petition for Donna Kelce to perform the Super Bowl coin flip with her two sons in the game.
Super Bowl betting festivities continue with the coin toss betting props.
