Super Bowl Coin Toss Betting Odds, History & Trends
The coin toss is an important part of every football game. A winning coin toss can help set the tone early, or, if the winner chooses to have the ball first in the second half, help start the second half well. Similarly, a winning Super Bowl coin toss bet can set a foundation for a winning evening of betting on the big game.
When it comes to betting on things like the Super Bowl national anthem, Super Bowl Gatorade color, and Super Bowl coin toss, the idea is not–or should not be, at least–to roll in the cash.
That said, we all want to win all of our bets, large or small, serious or frivolous.
Is there anything from coin toss history that might provide some helpful insight to make our Super Bowl coin toss betting pick less of a… coin toss? (I’ll see myself out.)

Who Calls the Coin Toss at the Super Bowl?
Knowing which team will call the Super Bowl coin toss might not influence your picks, but it is helpful information to know.
The designated away team makes the call, and last year, the Rams, despite the game being at their home stadium, were the designated away team and got to call the toss on Super Bowl Sunday.
That took place because the NFL alternates “home” and “away” designations between conferences each year.
Last year, the NFC champs were the away team, so that means that the AFC champion Chiefs will call the coin toss at this year’s Super Bowl.
Who Won the 2022 Super Bowl Coin Toss?
In Super Bowl 56 last February, the Los Angeles Rams called tails, but the coin landed on heads. Therefore, heads won, and the Cincinnati Bengals won the Super Bowl coin toss.
However, winning the toss didn’t help the Bengals win the game, as the Rams claimed a thrilling 23-20 win at their home stadium with Matthew Stafford’s late touchdown pass to Super Bowl MVP Cooper Kupp.
Most Recent Super Bowl Coin Toss Winner: Heads
- Most Recent Toss Winner to Win the Super Bowl: Seattle Seahawks (Super Bowl XLVIII, 2014)
- Longest Streak: Heads (five – Super Bowl XLIII in 2009 to Super Bowl XLVII in 2013)
- Longest Tails Streak: four (three times – Super Bowl XXXII in 1998 to Super Bowl XXXV in 2001, Super Bowl XXXVII in 2003 to Super Bowl XL in 2006, and Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014 to Super Bowl LI in 2017)
Super Bowl Coin Toss History and Trends
When there are two sides to the coin and therefore only two possible outcomes, one side is unlikely to have too much of an edge over time. And that is the case, as tails holds a 29-27 over heads ahead of the upcoming Super Bowl matchup.
With tails winning 29 times in 56 Super Bowls, it has come out on top 51.8 percent of the time, with heads winning 48.2 percent of the time.
Heads has now won the toss twice in a row, but prior to that point, tails had won six of seven tosses.
Recent Super Bowl Results Favor Coin Toss Losers
Both all-time and recent Super Bowl coin toss historical trends heavily favor the toss loser. In fact, the coin toss loser has won each of the past eight Super Bowls.
To date, the Seattle Seahawks were the last coin toss winner to also win the game, when they throttled the Denver Broncos 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII nine years ago.
The Super Bowl coin toss winner has gone on to lift the trophy only 24 times in 56 Super Bowls (42.9%).
If you intend to wait until after the toss to bet on the Super Bowl spread or potentially hedge via live betting based on the coin toss winner or loser, the coin toss winner has covered only 25 times (44.6%).
To date, the last coin toss winner to cover was also the Seahawks, who were a two-point underdog when they routed the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.
