Super Bowl History: Final Scores, Betting Lines, and Results

I love the Super Bowl because it forces the general public to learn Roman numerals. Okay, we're one week away from Super Bowl XLVII (that's 47 just in case you didn't know) and it's time to go back in time and see results and betting information for every Super Bowl (courtesy of VegasInsider.com).

Here's a quick rundown....
- Over the first 30 Super Bowls, the favorites went 20-10. Over the last 17, the underdogs are 10-5-2.

- Overall, favorites are 25-20-2.
- Overs hit 22 times and the Under hit 23 times.

- In the 14 games with a spread of 10 or more, the favorite went 8-5-1.

- In the 21 games with a spread of 6.5 or less, the favorite went 14-7.

- Scoring has vastly improved through the years and the bookmakers have adjusted their totals from the 30s in the defense-driven and running-game dominant era in the 1960s & 1970s, and jumped to the 40s in the 1980s as offenses opened up, and now 50s in the late 1990s and 20000s era of superlative passing offenses. Spanning the first 15 Super Bowls, the bookies set only one over/under total 40+ (Super III with the Jets/Colts). Since Super Bowl XVI (1982), bookies set only four o/u totals below 40 points. Since Super Bowl XXVIII (1994), the bookies set ten games with o/u totals 49+ points or higher, and only 2 o/u totals were set below 39.
