Betting On Super Bowl Squares
How Do Super Bowl Squares Work?
The format of how to bet on Super Bowl Squares looks confusing at first glance, but it’s actually pretty simple. Basically, the way it works is each team gets one axis, and you purchase a square on the intersection of the teams. For example, let’s say you purchase 4-6. The numbers you have correspond to the last digit in each score. So, if the score ends in four for the first team and six for the second team, that square will win. Generally, payouts happen after each quarter, so there are multiple chances to win.
Winning Super Bowl Squares
So, let’s say your square ended up having Team A: 4-Team B: 6. Here are some examples of scores that would result in you winning:
You see the pattern? As long as the digits match up after any of the quarters, that square will end up being a winner. This can also help to elucidate on why this game is so hard to win. Each square has a lot of different possible combinations, and what you’re effectively trying to do is cover as much of the possible range of scores as you can by buying the right squares.
The Best Super Bowl Square Numbers To Have
Given the information we have, it makes sense that the best way to win at Super Bowl Squares is to target common scoring increments. In the NFL, points are scored mostly in groups of seven or three, and this means that there is an advantage to selecting combinations involving seven, three, or zero (because seven plus three is ten).
Overall, the four best combinations have been 0-0, 0-3, 0-7 and 7-0, historically speaking. The general rule is that you’re in a good spot if you see a seven, zero or three in your square, as those are the most common scoring increments. If you see two of those numbers, you’re in a great spot. For example, 17-10 would cash for 7-0, 10-7 would cash for 0-7, and so on. Once you get outside of those numbers, you’re more or less in the wilderness.

Well, outside of ending up with the more likely squares - which is no guarantee - strategy is fairly limited in SB 58 squares. Since you buy in before you see the numbers that you actually get, there’s not much you can do other than hope. Plenty of people have superstitions about it, but in reality, it's all up to the numbers. That’s actually a good thing for those who like to play games like this, as this is a party game, not a super in-depth gambling experience. Super Bowl Squares is meant to include everyone, so no strategy is truly needed. Chance and luck rule the day, and that’s what makes it compelling.
